A gunman armed with an assault rifle, handgun and an explosive device has shot more than 40 people - killing around 20 - after taking party-goers hostage inside a nightclub in Orlando.

An unknown number of people were killed and 42 were taken to hospital after the gunman, believed to be in his 20s, opened fire inside Pulse nightclub, in what police are calling a 'domestic terror attack'.

The killings took place less than four miles from where The Voice singer and YouTube star Christina Grimmie, 22, was shot dead at The Plaza Live in Orlando on Friday.

Police said the gunman was not a local man and the FBI believe he may have 'leanings to radical Islamic terrorism'.

Nah, can't be. A follower of the "religion of peace" committing mass murder? Time to bury that narrative and turn the discussion to tougher gun laws.

BTW, I'm assuming the gay bar was not a "gun free zone" since the murderer obviously had a gun.

Nope, gun-free zone. The terrorist forgot to look up the statute before attacking. He's going to be sorry now.

It's time for speeches. Seriously, heartfelt tearful speeches.
Then, we need a roadside Memorial. Flowers, mementos and things significant to the victims.
Then, more speeches.
After that, we need to do something about guns. We need to say how guns are bad. We need more gun laws. We need more gun regulations. We must stop this by stopping guns.

Finally, we need to let more snakes into the country. They're just like we are. More snakes. We can call them refugees, but we need more snakes in the country.

It's a bad idea to get mad about this. ISIS will just be able to recruit better. We need to let more Muslims in from war torn nations, then ISIS will show compassion and disband.

Our president needs to make a speech. He needs to remind us to be calm and not jump to conclusions.

Speeches are good. They show you care. Caring is important.

We don't know why this poor troubled man did this, but we know that he had a gun.

After a tearful, heartfelt speech, the president can go play golf.

Priorities

Joy Reid on FL Shooting: ‘The Core Issue’ Is ‘How Easy it Is To Get A Gun’
by Pam Key12 Jun 201612

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” national correspondent for MSNBC Joy Reid commented on the overnight shooting at a nightclub in Orlando, FL in which approximately 20 people were killed and over 40 were injured and the authorities are investigating as an act of terrorism. She argued the core issue was about “how easy it is to get a gun.”

Reid said, “We have mass casualty shooting that are affecting children, teachers, people in church, so whether it’s a hate crime or whether it’s related to something related to international terrorism, we’re not getting to the core issue, which is how easy it is to get a gun. I mean Florida happens to have the largest gun owning population in the country and some of the most lax laws as to how you can get your hands on an assault rifle, so if you mean to do harm. We’re talking about a state with 1.4 million law abiding gun owners. But we’re not talking about that issue. Right now the only debate that’s taking place in the state of Florida, is the Supreme Court weighing whether to allow complete open carry.”
