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.

    The reports I've seen said the music was so loud, nobody even heard the guns, much less anything shouted or not.

    Possibly across the room. Not likely within easy range to put two in his chest and one in his head. .22s aside, guns are damned loud.

    My rights don't end where your fear begins.

      That was the report anyway. No reports of him yelling anything, so no evidence there for your assumption.
