The worst mass shooting in in U.S. history and the worst terrorist attack since 9/11 took place this morning

 The U.S. gay community is cosmopolitan but it is also tightly knit. It is very likely that nearly everyone in that subculture knows someone who was touched by this atrocity. Counting the maimed, there are over a hundred victims of this malignant savage, who, it turns out, called 911 to boast of his deed and swore allegiance to ISIS
NBC News reported that Mateen called the emergency services before the attack and swore allegiance to the so-called Islamic State (IS) militant group.

Unsurprisingly, the lede is getting buried by those who don't want to acknowledge the actual problem, and while there will be much talk of Florida's gun laws in the coming days, there will likely be little mention of the particular Florida gun law that bans firearms in establishments that serve alcohol....there are a great many concealed carry holders amongst the Floridians, but, by virtue of being law abiding, they were defenseless, allowing this jihadi to get off over a hundred shots.

Another attack appears to have been narrowly averted (see below) and it is likely that more are coming.  The enemy is within the gates. The blood of these innocents should bring that point home most forcefully to those who pay the Danegeld of diversity to bring us speakers like this.....but it won't. 

Well, this is a correction for the ages. Regarding the "other attack...narrowly averted"... it appears that the fellow who was arrested did not, contrary to initial reports, confess to wanting to do harm to the big Gay pride parade in LA. 

"It was a misstatement," Rodriguez said. "Unfortunately, she was given incorrect information initially, which indicated that that statement was made; however, that statement never was made. He did indicate that he was planning on going to the Pride festival but beyond anything as far as motives or his intentions that statement was never made nor did any officer receive that statement." 

He did mention that he was going to attend it.  The fellow in question also happens to be gay. The explosives turned out to be, er,  Tannerite. While it is likely that he will face criminal charges resulting from the intersection of a probation issue and California's crazy gun laws, this is looking more and more like a nothingburger. None of which is to minimise the horror visited upon the people of Orlando or to suggest that other similar attacks are any less likely.

1 The response by the left to this atrocity (Bernie Sanders excepted) has been so mendacious that I'm close to becoming a Trump supporter.

The guy they picked up in Santa Monica seems to be a Sanders supporter.  We don't know what his plans were, but he was already on probation for firearms chargers, so nothing good.
