Tuesday's 360 was 4/5 about the shooting in Las Vegas. Anderson was in Las Vegas and started with an overview before talking to Alexander Marquardt for details on how the gunman did it, the cameras he set up, the police work, questions about motive, the girlfriend and his extensive gun collection. Anderson had a nice soliloquy about remembering the victims of gun violence. The rest of the first segment was his interview with Heather Melton; she was saved by her husband Sonny who was killed. Melton talked about her husband, what happened at the concert, her grief and called the shooter "a monster".

The second segment started with the photos he police have released from inside the gunman's hotel room. Anderson talked with Drew Griffin about the shooter and his weapons. Griffin had a report on assault rifles, modifying them into machine guns and the ease of purchasing both. A panel of Phillip Mudd, Juliette Kayyem and Art Roderick discussed guns, law enforcement, the girlfriend in the Philippines, the logistics of the shooting and if there were any warning signs.

Anderson interviewed Iraq War veteran Taylor Winston who stole a truck to drive victims to the hospital.

Dr. Christopher Fisher of the Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center in Las Vegas had a phone interview with Anderson about treating the concert shooting victims.

The last segment of the first hour dealt with Puerto Rico and Trump's visit today. In clips Trump pretty much dissed Puerto Rico, compared it to "a real catastrophe like Katrina" and later the White House take was "all we heard were thank yous" despite not doing much of anything except throwing paper towels at people. Sanjay Gupta and Boris Sanchez are still in Puerto Rico and told Anderson that conditions are still really bad and the Trump/White House point of view doesn't square with reality and the measure of constructive criticism given. There are still big problems in getting aid to where it is needed most plus communication and electricity being practically nonexistent.

360 slid right into the second hour with Anderson talking to Kyung Lah about more details on the Las Vegas shooting.

Anderson had very good coverage of several angles and elements of the Las Vegas shooting except one. The political side. Hayes had it; he talked to politicians about the 2nd Amendment, about gun policy, gun laws and doing something to try to make sure this won't happen more often in the future.

@CAPPY - regarding your comment in yesterday's post about how could the shooter get so many guns up to his hotel room, I have some ideas.
First, maybe everyday he brought in one or two big duffel bags and it wasn't obvious guns were in the bags.
Second, maybe it was obvious he was bringing in guns but becuase he was a "high roller" he was given more perks than the usual Las Vegas vacationer and maybe that included looking the other way when questionable items were brought in.
Third, maybe that's just Vegas. Maddow pointed out yesterday that Las Vegas has lots of gun shows, there was one the weekend before the shooting, there's one coming up this weekend (put on by a different company), and there are dozens of gun shows throughout the year. Furthermore, Nevada is very pro-gun; there's easy access to guns and people are allowed to carry a firearm just about anywhere.
So if a hotel employee saw a guest bringing 20 guns up to his room, they might think 'oh, he must be involved with a gun show going on'.
I know it defies logic but when the world isn't logical you have to look at the illogic.

Have to give a shoutout to anderson's interviews in Vegas. He had one today with a man who lost his life partner and he actually started crying and I bawled. Team, could you post a link to the interview, if possible? Thank you so much!

Again Anderson beat Maddow in the demo (almost 2 times) which is what happens whenever he doesn't have trumpers on.

THANK YOU JAANZA FOR YOUR EXPLANATION: THAT EXPLAINS A LOT.
BUT....AND THIS IS A BIG BUT: WHEN THE KILLER KNOCKED OUT THE TWO WINDOWS DIDN'T ANY ALARMS GO OFF? POLICE SPENT TIME WANDERING AROUND THE HOTEL TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT ROOM OR ROOMS THE FIRING WAS COMING FROM. HAVING BEEN TO LAS VEGAS, THERE ARE CAMERAS EVERYWHERE. IN THIS DAY AND AGE, WOULDN'T YOU THINK IF SOMEONE KNOCKED OUT A WINDOW ON ANY FLOOR AN ALARM WOULD SOUND
AND MANAGEMENT WOULD KNOW AUTOMATICALLY WHAT FLOOR IT WAS.
HOUSES ARE WIRED. A SQUIRREL JUST TOUCHES MY WINDOW AN ALARM SOUNDS.
ON A DIFFERENT NOTE: I WAS JUST WATCHING NANCY PELOSI WITH CHRIS CUOMO. I FOUND HER NON ANSWERS TO EVERYTHING ASKED APPALLING, AND SHE SPEAKS LIKE A TINY LITTLE BIRD, WHO HAS LOST ITS WAY. PERSONALLY I CAN'T STAND HER AND FIND HER TOTALLY INEFFECTIVE. SHE POINTED OUT THAT THE NRA GAVE THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN 30 MILLION DOLLARS. WELL HOW MUCH DID THEY GIVE THE DEMOCRATS, NANCY?? I'VE SEEN THIS MOVIE BEFORE AND I KNOW THE ENDING ALL TOO WELL.
