Terrorism strikes the homeland, once again

Muslim assassin, Omar Mateen, slaughters upwards of 50 people in a gay bar in Orlando.

Update: Since this massacre is already being used by leftists to bolster their campaign for gun control, permit me to point out that Mateen appears to be a garden variety Muslim terrorist who was also carrying explosive devices that didn't detonate; can you get those legally? And he's a registered Democrat - which is not intended, by me, to be a reflection on the Democratic party; however, you know if Mateen had been wearing a cap with the slogan "Make America Great Again", the media and their political masters would now be condemning every Trump supporter in the country as a terrorist enabler (and, naturally, every Republican, even if avowedly anti-Trump). So, just to keep the record straight.

BTW, is the Pulse Club a gun-free zone? I honestly don't know, but mass shooters, like tornadoes to trailer parks, seem to be drawn to gun-free locations - for some strange reason that I just can't figure out

Our prayers for all the dead and injured, and their families.

Update II: Gun-free zone? Check.

Registered Democrat with guns goes on a rampage in a gun free zone and kills dozens, mostly gays.

Our thoughts and prayers are, indeed, with the victims and their families, as well as the medical professionals tending to the injured.

It must be made clear that this was mass murder by a radical Muslim terrorist. He jumped through all the legal hoops to purchase them. He had explosives that didn't detonate.

An official on FOX tonight, called the terrorist a "criminal". The Judge caught him and tried to get him to admit it wasn't a crimanal, but the guy just got deer-in-the-headlights and commenced stammering.

Beware the watercooler.

Ban Ramadan fasting, an unscientific and dangerous practice.

Some folks never miss a commercial opportunity:
In my capacity as a sometime nightclub operator, I've just been contacted by some outfit called the Professional Antijihad Capability Offensive, they want an undisclosed sum to "audit" my premises to determine my "antijihad" rating.

Anybody know anything about these guys? How much should I transmit to their bank account (they want advance payment).

As a venue serving alcohol Pulse would be a place where legal concealed carry of a firearm is prohibited under Florida law. Perhaps the mass murderer knew this and was sure that his victims would be helpless.

HMN: Yeah, that's right; same thing, I believe, in most bars. So, a (helpless) target-rich environment.

Steve: Better safe than sorry. I think the Australian Plan is only $500.

I'm with bruce. Ban Ramadan fasting. It just makes mean people meaner.

Steve at the Pub: be sure to read the fine print. If it's not in English, get a translator.
