Omg... I just turned on the radio a few mins ago.

to you LN7 & your friend, and Iriving ( don't who else is out a a gay person in Interference ). And of course people here who have gay friends and family

Headache thanks for adding in the extreme right wing faction of Christians and Catholics who could be set off in a similar manner. I was just going to do that before I scrolled down after IY's post. IY don't know if you are a Christian or a atheist/secularist, wasn't sure if you were solely pointing at extreme Islamists.

Strength to all affected!

Someone we feared as a casualty apparently just dropped her phone as she was fleeing. Some friends of friends are in the hospital otherwise, but it seems everyone I know personally is thankfully safe.

Except it's being reported that the shooter called 911 to claim allegiance to ISIS...

This is going to be the big question over the next few hours. I guess we will see.

Heading down to the Pride street fair for a bit today. It feels like I should be there for some reason.

I don't really want to jump too much into this. But, it seems like a bit of both. By all early reports, he seems to also have had anger issues and was enraged by seeing gay people kiss or something like that. It's one thing when some people are brainwashed by the ideology, and commit a crime. That happens, quite a lot. But this seems like a guy who used it as his excuse to justify slaughtering gay people out of hate. Time will tell when a picture is painted.

Maybe we all should if there's one in our area.

Earlier this year I was thinking about stopping my monthly Human Rights Campaign donation, thinking that the battle had largely been won. But then there's something like this as a startling reminder that there is a long, long way to go yet.

Chilling. Here in LA they just arrested a man with an arsenal heading to West Hollywood. LA Pride is this weekend and the Pride parade is scheduled for 11. He was going to target the parade. I can't.

Looks like the FBI has been aware of this guy for about 5 years.

He also had a license to carry his handgun, no criminal background, was a licensed security guard and used the same assault rifle that was used at Sandy Hook.

Orlando situation could have been easily resolved had the club attendees been carrying weapons on them. Concealed Carry saves lives.

No, I need to get ahead of the throngs. Pay no attention to the garbage truck full of money being backed into my driveway.

Lives would still have been loss. A guy on the FBI watch list should have been taken care of but the ball was dropped.
