  • Worst mass shooting in US history. 49 dead, 53 injured. Orlando, Florida.

    Orlando nightclub shooting: 50 dead, 53 injured, police say, in worst mass shooting in US history

    Key points:
    • Death toll of 50 makes it worst mass shooting in US history
    • Authorities describe shooting as "terror incident"
    • State of emergency declared across Orlando
    • Gunman was killed during shootout with police
    • Terrified survivors — who moments before were laughing and dancing with friends — described how the gunman raked the club with bullets, prompting a police SWAT team to storm the venue.
    The 'Pulse Orlando' nightclub is also a gay bar. I wonder if that had anything to do with the motives of the gunman?

    Every time this happens the answer is 'thoughts and prayers' and more guns. This kind of thing doesn't happen in Australia with such normality. How about you look at your mental health system because you're the same country who is possibly about to elect sociopath Donald Trump president.

    God bless America? God abandoned America a long time ago.

    No words, I literally have no words.

    RIP to the victims and RIP to the once great America. This is going to be the event that swings the public towards Trump and away from sanity.

        NRA If only the good people inside had guns

        Pretty sad they hold NRA rallies at the towns that have these mass shootings.
        Something defiantly wrong when Canada has guns and they don't have mass shootings and less then half the number of usa deaths from firearms.

            This......so much this. Their answer to mass shootings in schools is that teachers should be armed.

            Now there will be some rally around arming the gays as a vulnerable group.

            How can such a large nation be so stupid!

              Had an argument over a LinkedIn post once about this ^ Stupid bitch kept arguing that God keeps them safe by arming teachers etc and running drills with the class of pre-schoolers for what to do in case of an active shooter. Fuck growing up in that sort of fear.
              Silly bitch let slip that her gun was within easy reach in her desk drawer, loaded. To which I replied "One day you'll be burying at least one of your class when you forget to lock it away". Fuck the USA wouldn't live amongst that shit for quids. I like my real freedoms.

                The text message from someone in the club gives you an idea of the terror inflicted before people died. USA - the place where any fucking nut job can buy a gun. Looking at the pictures the shooter was conflicted, wannabe something, wannabe police, wannabe openly gay man. Who knows. Fucking coward at the end of the day.

                  WTF happened to blast out the walls?!

                  I'm assuming they didn't throw frags in there...a large shotgun maybe? Looks like most of the debris went inside, so I'm assuming it was police fire.

                        The SWAT teams have battering rams on the front of their armoured vehicles? Maybe that? Doesn't take much to get through those cinder block walls.

                          Canada has had 8 mass shootings over the last 20 years, USA has had 7 this week.

                            They did use an explosive device to distract the shooter before taking him down.
                            That could be it?

                              It has to be the culture and shit healthcare system for the poor, has to be. Quite often the mentally ill are also the poor due to not being able to find work, and as such find it difficult to access proper healthcare, particularly for mental health.

                              The fact that firearms are readily available just means it's easy for the mentally ill to kill people on a large scale. Think about how often in Australia you hear about someone in a stand off with Police holding a knife. Nationwide every month or so? If this was the USA, that same person would have a gun. It's just a lot harder to kill people with a knife, and much easier to stop.

                              The availability and ease of obtaining guns in the USA is a problem, but to be honest, if I moved to the USA I'd own guns, not for home defence or because I NEED one, but because I like guns and it'd be a hobby.
