outside the mandalay bay hotel and casino. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. a lot of information to report to you. in the last 24 hours we visited the hospital and heard remarkable stories of survival. we always talked with the atf. and new details about how and where stephen paddock got his weapons. here's what we know. he bought 50 guns legally. the aff tells me he purchased 33 firearms in the last year alone. the majority of them, rifles. they said none of the purchases set off any red flags. we're also getting a look inside the hotel suite where paddock orchestrated his massacre. while the motive remain as mysterying it is clear he was armed for an even longer siege. this police body cam video shows the relentless firepower. first responders were up against

anybody coming to take him into custody. >> so essentially you have a recording of him carrying out this carnage. >> no, that's not what i'm essentially saying. that is being evaluated. the fbi took all digital and electronic evidence into custody and that's what we're evaluating. >> so there you see there's a lot of electronic evidence they're going to be evaluating. also this. we've learned from the atf that stephen paddock bought a gun or guns as late as thursday. that's three days before the attack he carried out behind me. the bottom line i learned yesterday is you can buy as many semiautomatic weapons as you want and the atf tells us they wouldn't know about it because there's no licensing to record that. jill snyder of the aff says they have agents looking into whether
7:08 am

norah o'donnell is in las vegas near the scene of the shooting. good morning. >> hey, good morning to you. we've been talking to victims to try to piece together what happened here. we've got new images inside stephen paddock's hotel suite. police released body camera video last night. pretty chilling as they responded to the gun frooir from the 32nd floor and pictures from paddock's room show some of the weapons that he used. here's what we know. he set up cameras in the hallway to warn him if anyone came by. one camera was on a service cart outside his door. he had 24 guns in his suite. 23 were rifles and one handgun. in all investigators report they found 47 guns in that room and two homes and here's what atf is telling cbs news, that
8:04 am
year and a majority of them were rifles. the atf is also saying many of them were expensive top-of-the-line weapons. investigators say paddock had devices on at least 12 of those guns in the room that allowed him to mimic fully automatic weapons. they're called bump fire stock. they're devices that allow guns to fire rapidly and they're completely legal. in an interview only on "cbs this morning" demarco spoke to the last gun store owner who sold a gun. demarco, good morning. >> you can own as many firearm as you want. the general manager of guns and guitars said he sold paddock a weapon just days before the
8:05 am
massacre. >> was ill. it made me physically ill to think we had interacted with him and he committed such a tragedy. >> he said he sold him a gun the same day. >> do you feel any guilt about that? >> i don't, no. we do everything right. >> he said paddock had been a customer of guns and guitars for about a year and in that time they sold him five firearms. >> knowing that this may have been his last stop before heading to las vegas, does that make you feel some type of way, sort of responsible? >> this morning over coffee, i was having a moment in myself thinking that i may have were well to have shaked hands with that man. >> reporter: he fired into a las vegas crowd in what sounded like automatic rounds. the atf said he had 24 guns and 12 of them had bump fire
8:06 am
they're attached to the back of the rifles. they allow squeezed triggers to slide back more quickly. >> they're a work-around that allow people to take a gun that's perfectly legal and turn them into something equivalent the a machine gun. >> reporter: ucla law professor adam winkler says if there's gun reform it could allow modifications like bumpfire stocks. >> that's the kind of regulation that nra may support. there's a broad consensus that people shouldn't have access to automatic weapons. banning these devices is a way of banning automatic weapons. >> guns and guitars tell us us it did not sell any ammunition or bum about fire stock. they say they did all the proper background check and did not sell him any automat
8:07 am
norah? >> demarco, thank you so much for reporting. david shepherd is a former fbi agent and former security director in las vegas. he is the ceo of the readiness group who advises those around las vegas and the country. good morning. >> good morning. >> when i spoke to the special agent in charge they traced all the guns and what we're learning is that 33 were purchased were purchased in the last year al e alone. what does that tell us? >> he was definitely planning. you have to collect suppliesing you have to collect the weapons, collect the ammo, to that well in advance, and that's what he did. >> that's what he did. but it was highly premeditated. >> highly premeditated. he picked the area. looked at the best view how that was going to happen. >> we heard demarco morgan talking about the bump stocks,
8:08 am
turn a gun into a machine gun. are they new or been around? >> they've been around. they'll shoot bullets 700 rounds or more per minute. so you'll stop and when he was wearing gloves, he had gloves on, he can change the guns back and forth so he won't burn his hands. fully automatic. >> i know you've about not only been at the fbi but hotel security. after 9/11, we saw security change at airports in a very significant way. how do you see security changing at hotels? >> right now we're trying to assess. it's not as much as hotels as much as open air venues. they're more susceptible. we have to worry about trucks crashing into our people and now high altitude. this is the someone one we had. the otheras

texas tower when 15 people were killed. >> i was there at the press conference with the sheriff yesterday who seemed concerned that nobody saw the fact that he brought in ten big suitcases, that he had some of this equipment perhaps set up in his hotel room. how could he have put together this arsenal and set it all up without anyone notices. >> he wouldlet have brought them in gun cases. he would have broken them down and put them in their suitcases. assemble them. tripods to be able to take and shoot. you wouldn't know it. >> david shepherd, thank you so much for joining us. we appreciate it. as we mentioned we spoke to atf ajejt in charge, jill snyder, who worked for the bureau for 30 years and we asked her how the investigation is different from others she has worked. >> this the largest active
8:10 am
the largest in the country. but this one is different because we have agents who live in this community, and one of our agents responds that night to a phone call from his daughter who was at the concert. she's a university student. she called him saying that shots were being fired. she was at the concert. and she told him where she had run to. she had run to the biloxi. he responded. he was responsible for bringing several people into the storage room into the hotel. when they would come in, he would search them to make sure they weren't an active shooter and he made sure they didn't have any explosive devices and wanted to harm anybody and he was responsible for about 200 people taking refulk in that storage room and he also administered first aid to several people. >> so onef
8:11 am
saved a lot of lives. >> he was a hero. >> a lot of heroes here. she also told us that the atf is studying the recovered weapons, trying to also figure out how much paddock spent on them. she said some cost as much as $4,000 for one rifle. and david shepherd just said to me, this is the first time we've had a shooter like this who was a multi-millionaire. so he was able to purchase the types of guns he wanted no matter how expensive they were. and that's something the atf is looking into. norah? >> thank you very much. it's going to reignite the conversation, who gets to buy them and the type of guns. i saw a montage the other day politicians saying now's not the time to talk about it, now's not the time to talk about it. when is the time. >> the bump stocks sell for $99. >> i

8:35 am
responsible without barack obama. i don't mean that in a symbolic way. birther richl had a high degree of purchase during barack obama's presidency, upwards of majorities, pluralities, however you want to have it, of the republicans believe he was a nonpolitical president. i believe donald trump had the wisdom if you want to call it that that it was not a fringe movement, that it could be the basis of launching a sus successful political career, which it did. >> you believe the vote for donald trump was in part a vote against barack obama. >> yeah. i would think it was kind of revaughni revaughn chism.
8:36 am
we should expect this. we have a long and regrettable history of racism and white supremacy. the election of a black man to the white house, that would somehow disappear, that we would no longer have to grapple with that i think is a bit naive. >> your book is called "an american tragedy." the tragedy is it allowed donald trump to succeed. >> yeah. not just succeed but had -- >> succeed to the presidency. >> yes. come to the presidency and shifted and become presidential, maybe the president would be presidential. you see a president go to a region of the country that's been hit by a natural disaster and he's lofting paper towels, conducting a policy on a tweet. >> at the same time you have general matusz saying we should stay in the iran deal, the p

repeal obamacare yet. so a lot of things he stood for, fought for that are hallmarks of success have been resistant so far. >> right. >> it's not a tragedy. >> that doesn't give me much comfort. i don't think it's because -- i don't credit trump with the fact that obamacare hasn't been repealed yet. i don't believe we're in the paris climate accord anymore. i might have missed something, but i don't think we are. i don't take much confidence, i don't credit trump for that. >> it's more cultural, too, isn't it? >> that's ooh part of it. >> one of the criticisms president trump is receiving now he's not in the campaign trail mode anymore and yet he does in some people's opinion seem to cater to only his own voters and his group of supporters. president obama was criticized by some by saying while he may have been president for everyone, he wasn't doing enough for the african-american co
8:38 am
two and looking back, do you think president obama made some missteps with regards to the african-american community now says what president trump's being accused of doing? >> yeah. i think black people in this country make up 13%, 14% of the population. >> 13%. >> yeah. trump's base is a lot bigger, you know, so the number of people, the sheer number of voters that he can consider is a lot larger than barack obama's. i think that imposes, you know, some degree of pow e. obama always had to find some way to somehow represent the community he came from and speak to a broader country at the same time. now, there were people like me who were somewhat frustrated with some of those attempted and how that came out. but i was never unaware of what that men and what that conflict meant and how special of a person you had to be to walk both lines like

barack obama. >> the book? >> yeah. >> i wouldn't say that about him. >> you feel strongly about him. >> i do. >> you called him to task. >> that's why i say it wasn't a homage. he deserves credit. i'm not saying -- >> can i say this about you. you're being called one of america's best writers on race and you were gagging about that. >> i'm gagging right now. >> would you like to be called -- >> no, no, no. i would like to be the best writer in america bar none. i have no problem being black and being a black writer, but i think when they say you're a great right owner race, it's to pretend i'm in competition. >> i think with can agree
