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.

    Must be a nightmare just trying to get the victims, bodies or evidence out. I know when ever a plane crashes with one person with AIDs on board the NTSB has to to wear fullbody protective gear. This being a gay bar I’d assume the whole area is one large biohazard with over 100 being shot.
