Orlando Nightclub Shooting: Mass Casualties After Gunman Opens Fire in Gay Club
At least 50 people were killed and more than 50 others wounded after a gunman opened fire and took hostages at a gay club in Orlando, Florida, early Sunday morning.
The shooter was identified by several law enforcement sources as Omar Mateen, 29.
The massacre — which is now the worst mass shooting in the history of the United States — began when the gunman stormed the Pulse Nightclub about 2 a.m., with an AR-15 type rifle and a handgun, officials said.
He was shot dead about three hours later when a SWAT team entered the club, police said. Eleven Orlando police officers and three Orange County sheriff's deputies exchanged fire with Mateen, authorities said.
The incident is being investigated as an act of terrorism. Mir Seddique, Mateen's father, told NBC News, "this has nothing to do with religion." Seddique said his son got angry when he saw two men kissing in Miami a couple of months ago and thinks that may be related to the shooting.
The law enforcement sources told NBC News that Mateen was born in New York in 1986 and was listed as living at a residence in Port St. Lucie, about 125 miles south of Orlando.
Mateen had active security officer and firearm licenses, according to Florida records, and his family said he worked in security.~What surprises me is that these kinds of statements are actually made with a straight face. That and the idea that the media thinks we're all believing it.
No matter what you think of being "gay",under no circumstances should it ever be considered an automatic death sentence.
The bewildering thing is that the leftists and their media lapdogs seem to be more concerned with photographers and bakers than importing an ideology that believes that killing homosexuals would be an act of compassion.
But then again liberalism is not about "caring" as much as it is about control and tyranny.
Sadly very few will get that.
