I was out all day and am just catching up on the news of the mass shooting in Orlando. So terribly sad.
I understand the current thinking is that the gunman was a “lone wolf,” born in the U.S. of Afghan parents, who talked about fighting for ISIL/Daesh but had no known ties to it. He’d been investigated by the FBI twice and wasn’t connected to any terrorist organization. He had legally bought guns in the past couple of weeks.
Meanwhile, a guy identified as James Howell of Indiana was detained in Los Angeles with a car full of guns and explosives, allegedly intending to use them at a Gay Pride event.
Meanwhile, all over social media, people are posting every video they can find of Bible-thumping preachers calling for gays to be put to death.
