I'm also disturbed that he was able to get some of those materials from a group based here in the States. That's...frightening .

Don't think that's surprising at all, though.

The current British political climate, with an emphasis on UK media outlets that feed on xenophobia (The Sun, Daily Mail, Daily Telegraph etc.). This generally sets the context for acts like these, and fair to say it's not unique to Britain, but living in Australia it's not difficult to stay in touch with UK politics. And fair enough, this is more widespread than simply Britain.

Nigel Farage/UKIP's new poster released on the same day as the murder reinforces that somewhat.

tl;dr the world is shit

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.

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