The President is right, this was an act of terror and and act of hate.

This is a mentally unstable man who glommed onto ISIS propaganda. He was apparently on a watch list, and he had a concealed carry permit. If the NRA bought GOP hadn't had their way he'd have been banned from owning a gun, let alone a fucking assault rifle. Why don't we brand the NRA as a terrorist organization since they aid and abet terrorists.

Just found out that a bridesmaid in my sister's upcoming Wedding was killed in the club. I didn't know her personally, but the family is devastated

People who know more than me, should I be getting close to hating Bill Clinton at this point for the ease of purchasing machine guns these days?

Sorry for your family and friends.

I still can't believe it's real.

My 7 month old got a Pride romper, it's rainbow coloured. I think more people should immerse their kids into diversity as early as possible so that things that are different are not strange to them.

I think with the ISIS threat (and even if it's removed/powerless there'll be something new), would a real good first step be enacting it where if you're on a FBI watch list, you can't buy a gun???

He's being sardonic.

I have nothing to add to this discussion besides rage and disgust, but I won't decline to mention how opportunistic I find Trump's response to this tragedy. He's a crappy human being.
