Let me answer your question first

and then I'll give you the theory I have on the shooter...

I don't see a need for such a device. Using one is stupid. First ammo is expensive and second even the military when on full auto shoots in 3-5 round bursts to be effective. I can shoot enough ammo without wasting it by usig one of those contraptions...what amazes me more and more each day is the frauds in Washington that spout off about gun control know so very litte about firearms...you would think these would have been brought up months ago as a legitimate argument for the legality of such a device if they knew squat and I don't think anyone would have aregued about outlawing such devices  or at least requiring a machine gun stamp.   I will say however that if you take the Constitution as it was intended fully auto weapons should not be outlawed as they serve the purpose of the second ammendment...but personally I don't need such a device or an automatic firearm to practice the sport or defend myself..

Now for the second part...I think the shooter was a left wing zealot...making a political statement. He bought his weapons in Octoboer of last year, right before the election, he was supposedly photographed although it's being denied at a anti trump rally. I saw the picture and it looked like him to me...but regardless he was a registered Democrat I've read and what better way to make two political statements but at a Country artist concert ( Jason Aldean is a member of the NRA and an avid shooter and hunter) where a large crowd of red state fans are likely to show and at the same time point out how guns kill for the anti-gunners...serves a dual purpose and as quickly as the anti-gunners responded it appears to have worked in that case and if he killed a bunch of Trump supporters it appears to have worked in the second place as well..I'll be interested to see how much of this makes the news and what the heck the new interest in the shooters girlfriend brings up after she was brought back from the Phillipines when the cash had started to flow to her...
