WHEN (xxxx) killed 49 people in a gay nightclub in Orlando on June 12th, did he commit the bloodiest mass shooting in modern American history, the worst ever attack on gay Americans or the deadliest act of Islamist terrorism since 9/11?
… the answer seems obvious: the attack was all three of these things.
It was also an early test of how a President Trump might handle a crisis if elected in November. One of the finest moments of George W. Bush’s presidency was when he went to an Islamic centre six days after 9/11 and issued a call for tolerance and unity. Mr Trump’s first thought was to exploit the shooting to score a point:
Psychopaths lack empathy. The Donald is a clinical psychopath.
No matter what happens, he only thinks of himself. 😦
… the shooting shows that America has a unique vulnerability to lone-wolf attacks because of its gun laws. In France two people were killed the day after the Florida attacks by a man who claimed inspiration from IS. He wielded a knife. Armed with an assault-rifle and a semi-automatic pistol he could have killed many more. In America (xxxx) was able to walk into a local gun store and buy everything he needed to kill or wound 102 people, without breaking any law.
