in a rare con­ces­sion on gun con­trol, the Na­tional ri­fle As­so­ci­a­tion an­nounced its sup­port Thurs­day for reg­u­lat­ing “bump stocks,” at­tach­ments that can ef­fec­tively con­vert semi­au­to­matic ri­fles into fully au­to­mated weapons. Pad­dock ap­par­ently used such de­vices.

The of­fi­cial wasn’t au­tho­rized to dis­cuss the mat­ter pub­licly and spoke to The As­so­ci­ated Press on con­di­tion of anonymity.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors have been comb­ing through his back­ground but re­main stumped as to his mo­tive.

The pro­file de­vel­oped so far is of a “dis­turbed and dan­ger­ous” man who ac­quired an arse­nal over decades, Sher­iff Joseph Lom­bardo said.
