Antis Exploit Terror Attack In Orlando

posted on June 14, 2016

As more is learned about the radical Islamic terrorist who murdered 49 people and injured 53 others at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla., early Sunday morning, it is becoming increasingly evident that those trying to make the attack about gun control—like presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton—are simply pushing politics as usual. 

By Monday morning, media reports revealed that the terrorist, who we won’t dignify by using his name, had been investigated by the FBI at least twice in the past for possible ties to terrorism and had traveled to Saudi Arabia twice for religious pilgrimages to Mecca—just like one of the San Bernardino terrorists who killed 14 last December.

In the midst of the horrific attack, the murderer phoned 911 and proclaimed his allegiance to the terrorist group ISIS. Yet Clinton, who did call the all-out assault “terrorism,” used the occasion to attack the most popular rifle in America, used by many for sport shooting, hunting and self-defense: “This is the deadliest mass shooting in the history of the United States, and it reminds us once more that weapons of war have no place on our streets.”
