    Hurts, They found some AK's in the gay pride parade also. ;~; Annoying that it was a Gay club. So close to home too.

    The fact that mass shootings in the US have become so frequent shows just how disturbed our "culture" has become.

    It seems he likely was related to ISIS. Its being reported from most sources. At the very least ISIS has claimed they were behind it, although it is possible that they are doing it in order to make people more fearful. I wouldn't be surprised if the shooter in CA decided to attack after seeing this and thought he could pull it off too. Thank God nobody was killed there.

    I live only 2 hours away from Orlando. This hits close to home in more than one way. I feel so bad for the victims, and families. I hope the best for all of them.

    I live about half hour from Orlando, so this is pretty scary. I've passed by that place before, too.

    ISIS would tell you they hit the tree in your backyard with lightning if it would make you more fearful of them

    Are you a christian? Cause if so, your own book says I can stone you to death... so.. I wouldn't go about using their religion against them. Or you know.. all the other atrocities christians have done... Not to mention how the Christian god is a dick that has to compensate for something.

    Hell.. the only good version of the Judo Christian god *and I guess Allah since they're the same damn guy* was created from 4 dinosaurs, 2 Mammals and a Dragon.

    Somewhere.
    I have such a sick mind. I thought the "shooting" was of sperm.
    I feel bad now. And sad.
    Why do these kinds of people exist...especially me...?

    Fear... They simply fear what they don't comprehend. And if they can't comprehend it they try to make things simpler... by killing what confuses them.

    Daily reminder it was a Muslim born to Afghan "refugees"

    Daily reminder he was a registered Democrat

    Daily reminder future attacks can be prevented if you #VoteTrump in November.

    My heart goes out to the victims and their families.

    Daily reminder that he was an American born citizen

    Daily reminder that it is still currently unknown whether he had any connection to ISIS and that it does not seem as though the attack was religiously motivated

    Daily reminder that the casualties could have been drastically reduced if the (terrifyingly large amount of) ammunition and weapons he was carrying had been checked and regulated

    Daily reminder that using a literal terrorist attack to back up a political agenda makes you an asshole, regardless of how much you say you care for the victims after doing so

    I believe it's easier to blame the individual, and not their beliefs. I only say this since I know Christians, and Muslims who are not killing anyone. If the individual is an ass, then they do their own thing. Obviously we can blame their religion, but only a lunatic is gonna carry out what they believe their religion wants when it comes to hurting someone.

    Nothing you said contradicted anything I posted. Was he not a Muslim? Was he not born to Afghan refugees? Political correctness is killing people.

    Was he a Muslim? Yes. But according to reports from his family and those close to him, not a very devout one. Certainly not one cut out for a Jihad
    Was he a Democrat? Yes. Cool. You've established that people from both sides of the political can commit acts of terror. No one perfectly fits a demographic. Plus, this is the following he's attracted
    Was he born to Afghan refugees? Yes. WHY DOES THAT MATTER. It was not even the refugees that committed the crime, it was their American born son. The parents have gone on record saying they were shocked and lament with the rest of America

    Stop using an atrocity as a poor excuse to push xenophobia on us.

    >wants to control guns
    >>Islamic terrorists don't obey gun laws
    >>>mobsters don't obey gun laws
    >>>>people who kill people tend no obey the law inherently.

    Did I mention that people who intend to kill people are inherently already breaking one of the most important laws? Why would they care about lesser laws?
    Sometimes I wonder if they should be handed out more freely, after all, if half of that gay bar carried guns, this wouldn't have happened like it did. Try to shoot up a bar in Texas, I fucking dare you. You might get two, maybe three people before you look like a pin cushion. This happened in Florida, a state full of old people and hurricanes. Kinda reminds me of the Incredibles movie, where the antagonist wanted to give everyone powers so everyone would be equal. I feel like people would have a weaker tendency to shoot other people if they knew that at least half the people around them also had firearms.
    On the flip side, I can see why people aren't exactly on-board with this. Lol.

    Either way, this is terrible.
