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.

    Nice attempt at misquoting him on purpose, you wiener!

    Attempt? There was no attempt! With ammosexuals, the line between removing a threat and taking life is very thin, sort of Zimmerman thin. So it was out right a successful misquote, but one that perhaps gets to the underlying pathology.

    There's no pathology, sweety. It's power, pure and simple. You can use it for noble purposes like over 99% of all guns are or you can be part of the less than 1% and use it for vile purposes. Eschewing it entirely is not noble, it is foolish.

    My rights don't end where your fear begins.

    Glad to see other people are picking up on this one. *I* have a bigger dick than he does and it's a clitoris.

    I am "that girl" your mother warned you about...
