I think we are all adults here and can understand that just because he pledged allegiance to ISIS doesn't mean it was his motivation for the shooting. It doesn't mean they orchestrated it. It doesn't even mean they were aware he existed.

It's entirely plausible, and I think likely, that the pledge was said to deflect from whatever his reasons for shooting up the club actually were. Or it was done to boost his "street cred", if you will.

But clearly he was an unstable person and able to purchase high-powered weaponry with relative ease, something which reasonable people outside the U.S. simply cannot fathom.

I wish they didn't cave into the demands of Paul Ryan. It's not a 'partisan' view to think you shouldn't be glorifying killers with your media. Not giving credit to someone for murders they want credit for (even though we all know the truth -- it's not a secret) is a good idea.

And even if he was self radicalized, which is possible, it still doesn't negate the other points.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

It seems like hyperbole, but nothing will ever get done. Rights/laws/semantics are more important than safety

We need those AR-15s in case the government ever tries to oppress us, as an AR-15 is secretly very good against tanks and stealth bombers.

When that pussy dictator (paradox noted) Obama comes with his nukes, at least they'll be armed.

On a sort of related note, I was speaking to somebody who was visiting from Europe and she asked, without joking, how come there was nobody at Disney World to shoot at that alligator who snatched the toddler. She is a senior citizen, wasn't poking fun in any way, but was actually genuinely surprised that people weren't packing on that beach.

Yeah, I think the Far Right definitely won when England revealed their assassin's cry of "Britain first," too. Yes, this is how this works.
