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.

    In other words: The gun-free zone sign doesn't matter. Thank you.

    You've not been paying attention, have you? Remember Sandy Hook? The gun-free sign DID NOT MATTER!! How many, 20 kids, dead because idiots thought a stupid assed sign mattered. Another idiot proved them dead wrong.

      "Quick, drag the goal posts all the way over to Sandy Hook!". When you remember the statement you made that kicked this line of discussion off you're going to wish SN was the sort of site that allows editing of posts.
