A suspected Islamic terrorist opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida, killing 50 people and wounding another 53 before he was killed by police. While authorities continue to investigate to determine whether this man had ties to ISIS, the terror organization has not been quiet in praising the attack. This comes three days after ISIS announced they would attack somewhere in Florida. Today's attack marks the largest act of terrorism on US soil since 9/11.

takyon: The gunman reportedly called 911 emergency services to pledge allegiance to ISIS. The President will hold a briefing momentarily. Compare this article to the original submission.

    All the pedantry aside - there's got to be a new "Florida Man" joke in this story. Every time you read or hear a tagline, "Man from Florida", you KNOW something outrageous is coming.

      Floridians won't even feel unsafe after this large terrorist attack. It's just the cost of doing bizness in FL.

      And your post made me think "Florida burning Man" joke.

      Not so funny, really.

      DISCLAIMER: if the next 'attack' consists of fire, I was at home, or at work, or with my family somewhere.
      I have witnesses that say so.
