    Early Sunday morning, a gay bar in Orlando was attacked by what initial FBI reports say were radical Islamists. More than 40 were injured.

    I place the blame for this attack, the December 2nd terror attack in San Bernardino, CA squarely on the shoulders of our CIC, Mr. Obama. And before you let your blood pressure get out of control, let me explain. If Obama would enforce the laws of our borders and stop bringing Muslim refugees in, we would have better control of who is here, and that leads to better control of terrorists on our shores. At the current time, no one knows who is who, and even worse, where these whosoevers may be in our country.

    Do you agree with my opinion, or do you disagree? Let's talk about this, and please try to refrain from name calling.

    Except the guy, according to your article, is a U.S. Citizen.

    "Sources have confirmed to CBS News that authorities are investigating whether the suspect, who has been named as Omar Mateen, had ties to Islamic terrorism. Mateen is a U.S. citizen with no apparent criminal history, according to sources."

    Interesting that an attack on a gay bar is immediately suspected as being "Islamic terror" whilst other shootings and attacks (San Bernardino, for example) takes days to determine.

    The attack is being investigated as an act of domestic terrorism, but Mateen has no known connection to organized terror, Islamic or otherwise.

    CNN
    The FBI is involved. While investigators are exploring all angles, they "have suggestions the individual has leanings towards (Islamic terrorism), but right now we can't say definitely," said Ron Hopper, assistant special agent in charge of the FBI's Orlando bureau.

    Disagree. We may agree on Obama in general, but in this particular instance, you heard "muslim" and immediately jumped to "refugee." As Rolfe and others have pointed out, the shooter was an American muslim, not a refugee. So your conclusion is erroneous.

    Amazing isn't it?

    And as exscentric posted, the number of dead is 50. This becomes the deadliest mass shooting in the United States according to the live updates.

    Rasha Mubarak, the Orlando regional coordinator for CAIR-Florida, a Muslim advocacy group, released the following statement on the shooting:

    "We condemn this monstrous attack and offer our heartfelt condolences to the families and loved ones of all those killed or injured. The Muslim community joins our fellow Americans in repudiating anyone or any group that would claim to justify or excuse such an appalling act of violence."

    Pure foolishness. Obama wasn't wielding a gun and shooting anyone in any of those places. Your continued bigotry is showing.


    Again pure foolishness as others pointed out the guy was an American citizen.

    Trump has added to his earlier Orlando shooting statement, further tweeting: "Appreciate the congrats:Cautious for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don't want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!"


    He needs to learn when to shut up.

    Yep. Seems like honesty and outrage from the Press and the Politicians are proportional to the political-correctness of the victims' identity-class.

    As to whether or not this is terrorism, this just in and it seems pretty definitive:

    The shooter called 911, pledged allegiance to ISIS and mentioned the Boston Marathon bombers, according to a U.S. official.

    Mayor Dyer has called it terrorism, The Orange County Sheriff has called it terrorism, Senator Nelson has called it terrorism, and Obama has called it terrorism.

    One lone gunmen, who yelled the terrorist chant to Allah while firing his gun, and who pledged his life to head of Isis on a 911 call he made while going into the bar...

    Shame is that the president cannot even force himself to call this yet Muslim terrorism, but can find time to take pot ashots at the 2nd amendment, and also to scold us for not showing enough love and concern for those in the gay/Lesbian/Transgender Community!

    And latest was 50 dead now, another 53 in the Hospital....

    You didn't listen to Obama's speech. He called this an act of terror. An act of terror can only be conduced by a terrorist.

    What is wrong with pointing out the 2nd amendment. As long as we make it so easy to purchase assault rifles, etc. this type of massacre will continue. No citizen need assault rifles.

    he still refuses though to point out that it was muslim terrorism, as he NEVER wants to label and address that issue!

    And the gunman passed evry security check, so no matter what e do, they will still get armed...
