Well, it was a deliberate attack on a core group of the liberal block; lets see if they start to figure out that we all can't just get along. S/F.....Ken M

Just watched the presser where the local Imam danced around the subject and warned the media not to ‘sensationalize’ this before more is known….news flash fuckstick…50 people are dead from the hands of a brother muslim asshole

Reports say that ISIS warned of an attack in FL 3 days ago….and the kicker is that this dirtbag was a registered democrat.

Every one is wringing their hands over what to call it. I'd like to hear them say it was radical islam (fu auto-correct).

However, my love of history, curiosity of other cultures, and living amongst them, has led me to believe that even that term has an unneeded adjective.

A sad day.

This is making me rethink the weapon I carry.

This situation shows the naivety of the left. When someone says get your dog off my lawn or ill kill it, you either buy a leash or burn the neighbors house down.

Godspeed to the fallen, responders, and hospital folks. Smells like radically inspired terror from open source and media. We used a nightclub scenario in the last TCCC course we instructed as it's a target rich environment and chaotic scene to manage.

My money is on this being spun as a "hate crime" against gays, leaving out the Islamic aspect. It'll be condemnation not against Islam, but "religion" in general...and how "religious conservatism" is bad and anti-gay, etc.

The "Religious Right" will somehow catch flack for this. Watch.

Hillary will spin this to more gun control.
Trump will spin this to an anti-muslim rant.
The government will spin this to "we need to snoop more".
This tragedy will turn into a political football.

Shooter was, apparently, a registered Democrat. Born to parents who came from AFG. But yes, I'm sure there's a huge WH huddle going on literally as I type this about how they want to try and spin this into a anti-gun thing (even though the nightclub attack in France was in a country with basically no guns for anyone).

We already know the play-by-play and what's going to happen now. So I'll just be over here waiting for the next muslim attack.

Guys
I awoke this morning at 0530 Pacific and TV News reported that 20 had been killed and 30 injured. I just woke up a second time and News reports 50 killed and 53 injured. I added in a guesstimation of the number of rounds that missed victims. With these numbers I tried to count the clips (mags to you young folk) that Omar was carrying. I am up to 10 clips or so. That is a lot of bulk to hump around, but Omar seems to of mastered the logistics.

This happened about 10-20 minutes from where I live. Just got off the phone with the wife and everyone we know is ok. A couple weeks ago my wife attended a wedding for a gay friend, who had been trying to get her to go out with him and his then fiance while I'm here in TX training. One of the clubs he wanted her to go to was Pulse. Fuck these savages. Just told the wife no more putting off the concealed carry. Will be taking her to get it when I get home in a week. RIP to the fallen and prayers out for the families.

Just......fuck!

IF that is the case I would hope it was for a secondary slow and deliberate search of the facility once the shooting had stopped. I would think the days of the "tactical loitering" are over ....I know they are where I am. First guys on scene go in immediately and stop the threat. That is SOP. Lots of variables and too little information is available to know. FOX just said....police could only see 20 dead from the outside because it wasn't safe to go in. I would like to explore that statement a bit.
