|Mass shooting in a Orlando nightclub will polarize debate over gun violence and terrorism. This will likely spark more hate crimes against those who are Black, Hispanic, Muslim or LGBT.|
GUN VIOLENCE IS THE NUMBER ONE THREAT IN THE UNITED STATES.
THIS IS ONE OF THE WORST MASS SHOOTINGS IN THE COUNTRY COULD BE UP TO 50 LIVES LOST BUT THAT'S UNCONFIRMED AT THIS MOMENT!
IF EVER YOU WERE INVOLVED IN A MASS SHOOTING, THE FBI RECOMMENDS THIS:
RUN: IF YOU WITNESS A SHOOTING OR HEAR NOISES THAT AREN'T NORMAL TO THE AREA.
HIDE: NEVER BE SEEN BY THE SHOOTER. ZIG ZAG THROUGH AISLES OR FIND AREAS THAT COULD CONCEAL YOU. IF THERE'S A MASS SHOOTING EVENT HAPPENING TRY TO FIND AN AREA WHERE ITS SAFE AND CALL 911 CALMLY. MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN AN AREA THAT IS SAFE.
FIGHT: THE ONLY OPTION IF YOU'RE CORNERED BY THE THREAT OR IF THE THREAT LETS THEIR GUARD DOWN. DO NOT TRY TO STOP A THREAT UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO SACRIFICE YOUR LIFE FOR THE SAKE OF OTHERS.
IF THE LAW COMES IN, MAKE SURE YOUR HANDS ARE IN THE AIR AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTION. DO NOT STOP AND LOOK BACK FOR ITEMS OR TAKE PICTURES WHEN GIVING ORDER TO LEAVE AN AREA.
BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL WHEN POSTING ON SOCIAL MEDIA. YOU COULD TIP THE SHOOTER OR THE LAW MAY MISTAKE YOU FOR BEING A THREAT.
YOU RATHER LIVE BEING A COWARD THAN DYING A HERO!
A mass shooting in America and the inept Republican-controlled Congress will not do anything to control this. They will find ways to blame President Barack Obama for every mass tragedy in the country. Donald Trump will rile up his bigoted supporters into committing violent acts against Muslims, Blacks, Hispanics, immigrants and those in the LGBT community.
For the conservative agitators, it's not the right time to polarize a mass shooting event. Yet they enjoy polarizing the if "everyone has a gun" nonsense. They already are planning on blaming either #BlackLivesMatter, Muslims, liberals, the National Rifle Association, Democrats, Republicans or the president for the actions of a person.
Mental health care reform is often floated but nothing is done about it.
Some people know about the motives of the terrorist. They're either afraid of the terrorist or they don't snitch.
Background checks are universally approved by the public but the Republican controlled Congress refuse to pass any laws that they claim inflict the Second Amendment. They won't stop people who may be on the radar for potential attacks.
Okay the blame game. Here's a poll!
In Orlando, major casualties were lost to a senseless act of violence by a terrorist who opened fire on a nightclub. This happened early morning and it's another event where President Barack Obama, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will have to address. The NRA will of course spin this as another example of gun grab politics.
The Associated Press confirms that the terrorist was known as Omar Nir Seddique Mateen. The terrorist was a twenty-something year old man who was bucked by the police. The terrorist was armed with an assault rifle, a handgun and a "device" that could have been a suicide vest, but that's not confirmed. The terrorist started shooting in the people standing in line and around the parking lot.
|Mass shooter could have had ties to terrorism.|
The Pulse nightclub is a popular gay club in the Orlando area.
The shooting happened between the hours of closing and it was unnoticed until the music stopped.
More than 100 people were inside the club when this went off. The city is on lockdown as of right now. They are expecting a mass causality intake from the wounded, the grieving families and the dead.
About 5am, SWAT finally took out the terrorist. The chief John Mina says that this is one of the worst events he's seen in his career as a lawman. He said this is a domestic "lone wolf" terrorist.
Mayor Buddy Dyer speaks to the press that this act of violence is horrific.
Florida governor Rick Scott has talked to the president on the shooting. President Barack Obama said that he promises that federal authorities will work to find out the motives.
The Orlando County sheriff Jerry Demings also said, "This is an incident, as I see it, that we certainly classify as a domestic terrorist attack.
The law said that we shouldn't jump to conclusions and rush to judgement in this.
The outpouring of sympathy is coming from those in the LGBT community. Of course, religious leaders are urging the public to stay vigilant. The Muslim community is getting ready for a potential backlash from extremists.
He may have ties to the Islamic State, but that's not confirmed yet.
Here we go again!
The divisive phrase "radical Islam" will come up yet again. No mentions of the constant mass shootings in the United States. All we'll hear for the next three weeks from conservative agitators is Donald Trump is strong on terrorism by banning Muslims entering the United States. You will heard the word vomit of the president refusing to say "radical Islam" because he's one of them. You will hear the constant hand ringing about Hillary Clinton's emails and Benghazi.
We will hear the talk of profiling Muslims, Blacks and Hispanics because they're violent, don't you know!
This will spook White folks. Since this tragedy killed many people who were either gay, straight or bisexual, the conservatives will be so anxious to blame the victims for their deaths. They hate the LGBT community so for conservatives, it's divine intervention.
It comes no less than 24 hours of the shooting in Orlando that claimed the life of entertainer Christina Grimmie. The terrorist who killed Grimmie was identified as 27 year old Kevin James Loibl from St. Petersburg. The terrorist didn't know the victim.
A man was arrested on Friday for threatening worshiping Muslims. In North Carolina, a U.S. Army reserve officer named Russell Thomas Langford threatened to run over people at the Masjid Al Madina. He also threatened a chaplin superior who is a practicing Muslim.
The Orlando Police, the ATF, the FBI, Florida state authorities will join the Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson in finding out how this terrorist managed to carry out this attack.
Saying prayers to the family will not bring back the victims or the shooter.
Staying at home and avoiding large gatherings is giving into terrorism.
Calling this "radical Islam" isn't going to bring back the lives lost in this nightclub shooting.
Saying that a good guy with a gun is a pathetic excuse. One of the good guys with a gun is fighting for his life. The terrorist shot at the law and injured one of them.
Saying that profiling Muslims, banning gay marriage and blaming people other than the shooter could create copycat attacks.
Jumping to conclusions will not solve problems. It's time for Congress to act. It's time to pass a reasonable gun control or a strong background check on firearms. It's time to end the straw purchasing of firearms.
The Islamic State and al Qaeda are a threat. But if the terrorist was inspired by these groups, then it's likely going to continue and its up to Americans to be vigilant in the wake of this.
Republicans flex the only muscle they have in the fight against terrorism. It's their tongues and it's usually tied with rhetoric that doesn't help America.
World News Today send our condolences to the victims of this senseless tragedy. Also our condolences to the family of Christina Grimmie.
