News Of A Historic Mass Shooting At A Gay Nightclub This Morning



[Edit: WOW! That was just the early news report. Now the news is reporting at least 50 dead]

Edit: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick chimed in this morning:

His spokesman claims it was pre-approved days ago -- but it has not been taken down.

The previous top five:

32 killed – April 16, 2007 – Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia. A gunman, 23-year-old student Seung-Hui Cho, goes on a shooting spree killing 32 people in two locations and wounds an undetermined number of others on campus. The shooter, Seung-Hui Cho then commits suicide.

27 killed – December 14, 2012 – Sandy Hook Elementary School – Newtown, Connecticut. Adam Lanza, 20, guns down 20 children, ages six and seven, and six adults, school staff and faculty, before turning the gun on himself. Investigating police later find Nancy Lanza, Adam’s mother, dead from a gunshot wound. The final count is 28 dead, including the shooter.

23 killed – October 16, 1991 – In Killeen, Texas, 35-year-old George Hennard crashes his pickup truck through the wall of a Lubys Cafeteria. After exiting the truck, Hennard shoots and kills 23 people. He then commits suicide.

21 killed – July 18, 1984 – In San Ysidro, California, 41-year-old James Huberty, armed with a long-barreled Uzi, a pump-action shotgun and a handgun shoots and kills 21 adults and children at a local McDonalds. A police sharpshooter kills Huberty one hour after the rampage begins.

18 killed – August 1, 1966 – In Austin, Texas, Charles Joseph Whitman, a former U.S. Marine, kills 16 and wounds at least 30 while shooting from a University of Texas tower. Police officers Ramiro Martinez and Houston McCoy shoot and kill Whitman in the tower. Whitman had also killed his mother and wife earlier in the day.

More people than that were killed by drunk drivers last night....where's the outrage? The reports? The blogs? The comments from the President? Nowhere. Instead, this blog hates on the organization that would like to stop it from happening each and every night.

Let's give more people guns so less people will be shot with guns.

Barry is trying to show that this is a gun problem and not a terrorist attack. Beghazi was a protest about a YouTube video too.

There were a lot more mass shootings worse than this in U.S. history. The list is wrong. Oh wait, the source does indicate that only U.S. history since 1949. So, most of the most horrible mass shootings do not count, for some reason.

Ban democrats(registered) with guns.

Is Obammy finally going to have to say the words Islamic terrorist? What are the odds that he attends the memorial? Or will he play golf?

Was this a gun free zone?

None of this senseless carnage would have happened if they had been allowed to defend themselves with pink tee ball bats.

Sand Hook is bogus -- unless you're a democrat.

The killer was a registered Democrat in Flordia, voter ID 114484524.

Dan Patrick is an ass!! What is wrong with him!! Makes me sick that 50 people are dead and this is what an elected official puts on social media.

Liberal sociopaths are already lashing out in impotent rage at the NRA, Dan Patrick and other conservative groups and individuals.

Don't blame Omar Mir Seddique Mateen. Blame the good decent hard working productive citizens of the United States of America.

Now that Islamic Terrorists have killed the beloved gay, do you liberals still support Islamic extremism? This has to be confusing for you guy's...I mean who do you run to with your support? If you sympathize with Islam then you alienate the gay community but If you support them then the Muslims come after you! And there are millions more violent Muslims than there are gays.

Why would he take it down if it wasn't in response to this attack? I find it strange that instead of directing some anger toward violent Islamic terrorists, your first instinct was to see what Dan Patrick had to say so you could spin this politically! You don't even condemn the act!

That was one homoerotic name for a club. I knew it had to be a gay club but none of the two articles I read on the crime mentioned it.
First they came for our freedoms, then our goats. Now they want our gayz.

This shall not stand!

Who did he vote for in the primary?

Why did you lie about Dan Patrick? He did not "chime in". It was a coincidence, that's all. And yet, you report it as if he was responding to the shooting. Is that how the DA will operate? "Must be guilty, because someone said so on social media"?

"Conservatives" here are giddy that:
A: Gays were slaughtered
B: Guns were used and they can spin this into a reason for more guns
C: Obama!
D: All of the above

The irony is that Muslim men are commonly pedophiles. They call them bacha bazi-boy toys. It's their culture. They want to bomb a gay bar, yet they have no problem abusing boys that haven't grown beards yet. The whole culture is retarded.

Since Muslims hate pork, if I was in that gay bar and heard someone scream Allah Akbar, I would yell SQUEAL, SQUEAL LIKE A PIG

What's all the outrage about. It sounds like a typical black on black murder rampage during a Chicago weekend.

Of course NBC is blaming it on anti-gay white hate groups.

Target boycott??

The response at our house was to buy 2 more hand guns and ammo for each.

Seriously....we did.

The saddest thing I read about the shooting was the texts from people hiding in closets to avoid the gunman. The just got out of the closet only to be literally forced back in.
