  • A man who says he met Las Vegas mass shooter Stephen Paddock less than a month before the October 1 attack told authorities that Paddock warned that US law enforcement would start confiscating guns. 
  • The man, whose name was redacted in reports released Wednesday, quoted Paddock saying somebody has to wake up the American public and get them to arm themselves.
  • Authorities have still not provided a motive in what was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

A man who says he met Las Vegas mass shooter Stephen Paddock less than a month before the October 1 attack told authorities that Paddock had ranted against the government and warned that law enforcement and the military would start confiscating guns.

In a jailhouse interview with police and the FBI, the man said Paddock called Federal Emergency Management Agency “camps” set up after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 “a dry run for law enforcement and military to start kickin’ down doors and … confiscating guns.”
