For some odd reason people are shocked that a religion that practices tossing gays off rooftops would have one of its practitioners shoot up a gay nightclub. Talk about narratives being shattered.
FBI said there are "suggestions" that terrorist "may have leanings toward" radical Islam but not definitive yet

Looks like another one of those zany “lone wolf” Muslim terrorists.
enty people are dead after a shooting at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub in what investigators are calling an act of terrorism, Orlando Police Chief John Mina said at a morning news conference.
A gunman took scores of people hostage overnight inside the nightclub between 2:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m.; about 42 people were taken to area hospitals, Mina said.
Officers killed the gunman, who has not been identified, in a shoot out and referred to him as a “lone wolf.” He was carrying an assault rifle, a handgun and was possibly wearing an explosive “device.” The Orange County Sheriff’s Office hazardous device team is now searching the area.
About 30 people were “saved during the rescue,” Mina said. About 320 people were in the club when the hostage situation unfolded.
Nothing quite gets the ire of the angry left up like a chance to score cheap political points while the victims of Muslim terror are still being identified.
