Turned out the guy was a closet gay who attended Pulse nightclub on several occasions and was secretly having sex with another man.
He wasn't a radical Islamist, nor a radical anything. He was a mentally unstable human being who was allowed to purchase firearms.
He had nothing to do with isil or any other terror group.

So for trump to get on the anti Islam band wagon again just shows the world that he is
most probably more of a threat to the US and other countries than all these terror groups put together.
He is definitely not fit to rule a nation - any nation.

I've been very critical of the NRA for many years but this is one occasion where I must admit that
"one slipped through the net" and agree with Rubio's comment that the gun wasn't the problem here, the human holding the gun was the problem.

The gun is never the problem, any more than cars are killers, they're both inanimate objects/tools of humanity.

Did you miss the part where this worthless piece of humanity was a mooslime, misogynistic head case POS who was allowed to continue in his livelihood BECAUSE he was a mooslime? The US, under Obozo, has made mooslims a protected class (what a surprise, huh?), even when it's all too obvious to the sane among us that this is absolutely a fallacious concept.

Does it not seem odd how the ones who continue perpetrating the most savage acts upon their fellow humans all seem to share the same complexion and/or political/ideological/religious philosophy?

Just keep blamin Trump, it's what your masters prefer you to do, and .... it takes a lot fewer brain cells than thinking for yourself.

One last comment though, if you think I'm a Trumper, best think again. My man already lost sad smiley

I've said it before but figure it bears repeating .... if we could all wake up tomorrow and all traces of religion had magically disappeared from the face of the earth, we'd all be the better for it. Religion has done more to fuck over humanity than any thing else or even everything else combined!

It does not matter what gunman's sexual leanings are. It is known he yelled Allah Akbar while he was shooting and he even called 911 and told them he supports Isis and their leader and what he is doing is for them. That alone is enough for most sane people to say it is radical Islam. All radical Islamist are deranged nut-jobs.

We need someone to use our entire military might to destroy Isis' command and control and every pocket of them found anywhere in the world. So far Trump is the only one talking about doing that. As I have said on this site for many years political correctness will get us killed and it seems to be coming true. We do need a temporary ban on Muslim immigrants to this country until there is a better way to vet them to assure they are not radical terrorists which is what Trump is proposing. Stop listening to mainstream media only and hear both sides of the issues then make up your own mind. If you think we are safer now under Odamna's rule nothing will change your mind unless the next attack, and there will be another attack, is in your neighborhood.

The guns are never the problem. The problem I see is news people characterizing the AR 15 as an automatic weapon. It is not, it is a semi automatic one trigger pull one shot an automatic can empty the mag with one trigger pull. Our current gun laws do not allow anyone to buy fully automatic weapons without paperwork, lots of rules and close scrutiny. Another problem we have is all the gun free zones around the country. Those signs tell all the nut-jobs and terrorist that there will be nobody there who can stop their shooting spree until the cops arrive.

Gun free zones = free shooting gallery

So long as there are those among us willing to subvert the rights enumerated in our Constitution regarding the unencumbered right of all citizens to gun ownership there will always be those among us who will cling to the the rule of law ... deal with it.

World history paints a pretty bleak picture of what follows once a government bans gun ownership rights to its citizens, while not similarly banning such rights by the government itself. It's my sincere hope such a similar fate doesn't befall you cats down under, but if it does I'll damned well jump on the "I fuckin toldya so" bandwagon afterwards.

'Course since it won't really matter, much less change the fact you defenseless Ozzycats will be totally at their mercy at that point, it will be a hollow victory for making my point ... so all I'll really be able to say is, Oh Well tongue

Welp, in the absence of the government taking totalitarian control of the country, I will say I'm extremely happy with the fact we don't have permissive gun laws here. You can still get a gun, by the way; my brother in law has 2, my father in law the same - but they're registered, mandated in a locked cabinet and also in use in the countryside, not in the city, and they're rifles not semi/fully automatic military style weapons. Pretty difficult to sneak a 4 foot long rifle into a night club, and even harder to kill 50 people with it.

Sure, I fully accept that criminals can still get guns and all the standard pro-gun arguments that are made by the NRA types; at least it means every other cunt around doesn't have one. The chances of me being robbed or shot at gun point is spectacularly low compared to a place where everybody has access to a gun. Even if they were completely legal and I could go and buy one tomorrow, I still wouldn't own one.

Probably a good thing too, over the years I reckon I'd have shot a couple of my neighbours if I could've.

"Guns don't kill people, people kill people; guns are just a tool" - True, but it's a shitload harder to kill 50 people with a hammer.

We already have laws and restriction against full and switchable automatic weapons. The average law abiding citizen cannot buy mortars, grenades or 50 caliber machine guns but with enough money criminals and terrorist can get them and no amount of new laws will stop that. Who in the world obeys laws? The average citizen does. What laws do the criminals and terrorists obey? None with the exception of terrorists who only care about Sharia law. In a nation of laws the average citizen tries to obey them and will not go around killing people but those individuals who are inclined to kill no laws will stop them.

The narrative should not be about gun control it should be about terrorists and their eradication. The entire world should be involved in bombing the homes of the radical groups back to the stone age. Start with Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran maybe by then the rest of the middle east will stop their infestation before it gets started.

Yesterday I saw a backpack sitting on the side of the road unattended, called the cops and waited the 10 minutes it took them to respond. It turn out to be full of dirty diapers but it could have been worse. This showed me many things. Some of which are.
1. Our police cannot respond any faster.
2. Our police do not take the possibility of terrorist bombs seriously as he just walked up and unzipped it.
3. In the length of time it must have been sitting there nobody reported it but me.
I understand our little town is way down on the terrorists strike list but in my experience towns like this are the definition of soft targets.

Now an APC we can buy, we can even buy tanks and artillery but all the weapons have to be demilitarized (made unusable).

I have owned many guns in my life and none of them have ever killed anyone on their own. They have set on my end table or in my holster and none have ever gone off on their own. The guns aren't the issue it is the person holding it. There are some who just want to take guns away from everyone and will use any excuse to try and do that. Some people would rather do that than try and fix the bigger issues involved because the guns seem easier than trying to defeat terrorism or deal with mental instability.

Sure thing. But the fact that the mentally unstable have ready access to guns sure makes shit a lot easier.

I'm not disagreeing with you that guns don't kill people on their own. I'm also not disagreeing that you seem rational enough and probably aren't going to go on a murderous rampage.

What I am saying is that if you snap one day, and have access to your guns, it sure would be easy to do a lot of damage; whereas if you didn't have the guns, it would be a lot harder. Everybody has a breaking point and not everybody is a religious nutter (the vast majority of US shootings are not Muslim terrorists but one of your own).

If I were to snap I would more likely use my car to drive into crowds like it was a zombie hoard. If guns were removed from the equation somehow cars and trucks would likely be used most likely packed with explosives.

In our politically correct society we are not allowed to point out people who are mentally unstable and our medical field can't figure out how to help them. The only thing our government can do is pass laws that have no affect on criminals or terrorist. Their laws only try to prevent us from protecting ourselves and do nothing to prevent crimes or stop terrorist attacks.

Yep, yep. I get all that. But the dude was yelling out muslim rants and called 911 because he was unstable.
He was claiming something he wasn't because of his mental condition.
He wasn't from isil - same as that other crazy fucker in the Sydney siege.
AND authorities had the chance plus the legal power to lock up both of them but didn't. Thus the end result is more innocent lives lost.

So this ends up being yet another subject that could be debated for years. There are many solutions but none are absolute.

As previously mentioned above, if you remove the guns, they will start killing with cars, remove the cars they will revert back to knives, remove the knives

Guns have other purposes too. Many people like target shooting and hunting, it's not just about killing people, it's also about protection and being able to survive the time it takes police to arrive. In many places it could take the cops as much as 45 minutes to get there after called. I would much rather wait the 10 to 45 minutes for the police with the dead body of a home invader in my living room then to be at their mercy that length of time. There is even a legitimate use for ar15s. Our constitution provides for the possibility a civilian force to stand up against a tyrannical government and that can't be done without guns at least almost equal to theirs. It has happened in the past around the world and can happen anywhere anytime.

The killer in Orlando was of the Muslim faith, he might have been unstable but that does not change the fact he followed and supported Issis. Do not excuse persons actions because he might be unstable. In my opinion all terrorist are unstable mentally and that doesn't mean we shouldn't deal with them violently and with prejudice.

Don't care one whit that you could manage to have an unlicensed weapon since constitutionally that's the way it was meant to be. However, in your scenario you did fail to limit others access to it, which is a personal responsibility issue as would be the idea that your progeny would feel righteous in killing a bully, meaning you'd failed as a parent on 2 fronts.

In a seemingly other lifetime at the age of 7 I took my (unloaded) pistola to school for Show and Tell. No one freaked out or called the cops, nor was the school principal even notified. I was allowed to display it for everyone and no one screamed, cried or cowered in the corner. I got to tell them about my grandfather having given it to me when I turned 6 and my step dad and I having gone over weapon safety as a prelude to my ever shooting it.

Having owned guns for 54 years now I've yet to have even once pointed one at another human and hope I never need to. My feelings are that I grew up in a much more moral society than the one we have now. People were taught and mostly practised the concept of personal responsibility. There weren't millions of people with their hands out expecting everyone else to take care of them, our shores had yet to have been flooded with millions of illegals and at least a goodly percentage of the mentally unstable were locked away from society.

Press the fast forward button to today and we have convinced a huge segment of society that living on the dole is an acceptable method of getting along, illegals are not only rarely dealt with but are even allowed to openly profess their illegality with no logical recourse for those actions ever occurring and wackos are thrown to the curb, left to poison society with their insanity and acts.

Although some people today show anger towards the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki,
they are quick to forget that the Japanese at that time, were never going to stop killing till they had
captured and killed everyone in the Pacific, which still makes me think (quietly) that what they did and were continuing to do

Instead of trying to take guns away from law abiding citizens we need to be eradicating radical Islam from around the world. We don't need to use nuclear weapons on them like Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we can effectively kill them with conventional bombs. Bomb the shit out of them everywhere they live without regard to collateral damage. "Oh no what about the innocent people around them?" The radicals don't care about them or they wouldn't hide among them. The "innocent people" might not be so innocent or they would join all the refugees elsewhere. Bomb the areas back to the stone age and don't build it back. Do this enough and they will not be able to spread their crap around the world.

Don't worry about the ones already in the west handle them whenever they pop up. If there were trained people in the night club legally carrying guns maybe the death toll would have been lower. Imagine if he started shooting and a dozen people around him fired back. Maybe when we go to clubs we should have our designated drivers also be designated carrier. Does anyone ever wonder why these shootings happen in gun free zones or in cities and countries with strict gun control? These areas assure the killer there will be no resistance to them.

It may seem insensitive to indiscriminately bomb heavily a city that Isis has taken over but it will need to be done to cut off their command and control. If a location they are occupying is destroyed along with all structures they will not be able to coordinate their fighters anywhere else. After the buildings are reduced to rubble then we can send in ground troops to mop up. If this is done to Syria then maybe other countries in the region will finally decide to destroy Isis in there countries so we don't have to destroy them so completely. Most likely we would have to destroy cities in Iraq also to show that we mean business. The only way to eliminate radical Islamic terrorists in the world is to kill them, they cannot be negotiated with through diplomacy, the only thing they want is to bring death to all who don't believe as they do. What I thought should be done years ago about turning the entire region to a sheet of glass is not feasible because of radioactive fallout for the world. The same thing can be accomplished with normal bombs and we can produce enough of them to reduce the areas to rubble, maybe not a sheet of glass but massive rubble.

Because of political correctness we care too much about innocent lives but in this world today it is getting harder to tell who is innocent and that is why radical Islam is being allowed to flourish. When the terrorists attack they don't consider anyone as innocent and don't care who they kill so why should we?

There is no explaining what happened here but taking guns away from everyone is not the answer. Deaths like this are just a small percentage you just hear about them more now because the media is complicit with the gun grabbers. Just because this woman supported the second amendment does not mean the amendment should be abolished. The average gun owner will do everything in their power to not use there gun to kill. I like so many other people who carry all the time will walk away from a fight and arguments so as not to escalate them but if a shooting should occur around us will run towards the gun fire to protect others. It is possible for anyone to snap and go "postal' and kill someone but that have would be less than 1 percent. Maybe science should develop armed robots for home and public defense, wait, no "Terminator".

What will you do in Australia if your political leader decides to become a dictator like Hitler? Would you as a people be able to institute a resistance like they did in Europe during Hitler's regime? I think we might be able to here in the US because there are so many guns available.

The average response time between dialing 911 and the police arriving in this area is 15 minutes in other cities it's as long as 45 minutes. So one is on their own for that length of time. Try to find out how long it is in your area and see if you feel safe in your home. Buy a police scanner and just listen to the calls that are happening around you all the time unless you believe "ignorance is bliss".

"Florida 10-20-Life laws"

"Would it make you feel safer?"
No, more highly trained police officers and quicker response times might.

"Would it make wannabe thugs think twice?"
No, I really don't think people about to commit a crime with a gun believe they will ever be caught. I don't think they consult a lawyer before committing their crimes.

"I am not talking about any right to own, carry, conceal or stand your ground. I am just talking about a deterrent for criminals."
I believe the above will be a major deterrent for criminals. If more people were allowed to carry guns anywhere anytime with no gun free zones then it would be much more difficult for them to control the situation to their satisfaction so even just lowly criminals would look for soft targets just like the terrorists do. If we would stop creating soft targets it would reduce crime as well as reducing places terrorist could hit us. Basically making it legal for all adult non felons to carry a weapon open or concealed by no longer making the simple act of possession a crime. Think about it, if a criminal can't be sure that only the security guards in a bank were armed would they not move on to another target? Why do criminals not take on police stations? It is not because of all the badges, it is because of all the people with guns. Common sense would tell you that the terrorist have been doing their mass shootings in "gun free zones" and using their suicide bombers for harder targets like airports.

I'm really sorry, but these are two really stupid statements.

1) If I'm in a bank, and it's getting robbed, I'm doing nothing but what the robbers say unless they're actively going to hurt me. They're very unlikely to hurt me if I'm doing what they say, and I'm sure as fuck not going to defend the bank's insured money (incidentally, bank robberies are practically unheard of here - and hey we don't have guns AND bank branches are NOT guarded by anybody, let alone armed guards)

I'm with you on the rest of it; I've always been a Liberal voter; not a massive fan, but just seems the lesser of 2 evils to me.. but all the shit they gave Labor about Rudd/Gillard, Gillard/Rudd swaps, then their first term in power did exactly the same thing.. Don't get me wrong, Abbott was a cocksmack, but if they wanted to replace him it should've been with Turnbull going into the election replacing Abbott as a "fresh start", not the way it was done.

I'm fully with you on Labor being in gaol, and the whole late '00s complete crap that Labour brought in (pink batts, school cash scam pissing away our entire "future fund" with free $900 for everybody except me, whatever); but also completely pissed at what Liberals have done to the NBN.

I have no clear preference one way or the other in this one. I'm sure Labor will tax harder and generally be incompetent and I'm sure Liberal will fuck up what I care about, and when they win this election they'll use it as justification for all the wrong they've done.

It's almost as bad here as the US, but not to the extremes. We don't have Clinton/Trump, which I'd rather eat my own feces than vote for either of them; but that said, the choice between Turnbull and Shorten...

I would never attempt to change your minds down under about guns, if it works for you then fine. We have constitutional protections here and they should all be protected. I also choose to believe that the vast majority of people, Americans at least, are not cunts and are responsible enough to safely carry weapons. As far as the mass shootings we had in this country being done by US citizens it doesn't matter, they were still Isis related or directed and committed by radicals of the Islamic faith. It does not matter if they got the weapons legally or not, in this country our rights and privileges remain until we do something to have them removed like commit a crime. We should never take rights away from anyone just because they might commit a crime at some time in the future. Should we take away someone's right to free speech because they may say something in the future that would hurt someone's feelings? Why should everyone in the country be forbidden from purchasing a firearm just because some minority of people use them in crimes or mass shootings? I am ok with anyone who has not been convicted of a felony and of legal age being able to buy a gun and even carry that gun as long as I am able to do so as well. The issues should never be about the implement used to kill someone it should be about what caused that person to commit the act. The reason some people blame the guns is because it is easier to do that than to take on the actual cause of the action like religious terrorism or psychosis or alcoholism or whatever drove the person to do it.

Our election process seems to be very important to the media which is why it is such a spectacle and yes we do get tired of it and all the media's bias in their reporting. This year is worse probably because of all the "firsts" and all the vitriol both candidates engender.

The answer is to vote him out in our general election which
HAPPENS [email protected]!! Sat July 2nd! - See more at: [];

I believe the crux of the question was what would you do if your leader turned dictator and refused to leave office? Voting him out just wouldn't cut it. I am pretty sure the German people in the 1940's wanted to vote Hitler out at some point.

Well we almost voted him out, it's currently a hung parliament - neck and neck!
No one was actually expecting this to happen but it tells you something about our current
leaders popularity. To somewhat reply to your question Jgoins, I think you guys
would have more of a problem if Trump got into office - fucked up and was told to leave;
Because you can bet top dollar, he wouldn't.

He can't fuck up any worse than Odamna has. Our country is so screwed up right now that anyone trying to go in the opposite direction can only help it. I want to see what happens when he tries to do some of the more difficult things he and many of us would like to see happen. I know some of the things just won't get support of congress like the anti illegal stuff but then we will be able to see exactly who is in favor of open borders and against security.

In order for us to remove a sitting president from office he has to be impeached by congress for an impeachable offense. Bill Clinton was impeached successfully by congress but was not asked to step down. There have only been 2 presidents impeached Clinton and Andrew Johnson and neither were removed from office. []

There are those in the US who believe Odamna will try to become a dictator and not leave office after January 1 and will become a dictator. I personally don't think that will happen until they are able to take away all our guns. I don't know about Australia but our presidents are only allowed to serve 2 terms for a total of 8 years and must be elected both terms. If a sitting president refuses to leave office and somehow has support of the military it will be next to impossible to remove him without an armed revolt.

Never underestimate the power of stupid. I know you think things can't get any worse, but that's a seriously misguided view. It can ALWAYS get worse, and as an added bonus I think both of your choices are worse.

I don't agree about both choices being worse but even if they were that's what we have. I prefer to choose the one who wants to take our country in the opposite direction we are headed now.

I do believe our elections are possibly rigged in some way just like the FBI investigation was fixed in favor of Clinton from the get go. I only hope that the vast majority of voters will swing in one direction and the electoral college will not come into play this year. If one candidate wins an overwhelming majority of popular votes then none of the shadier looking electoral college stuff won't matter. I really wish there was a better more secure way of voting so that everyone would be sure that their votes count. Until then we are stuck with what we have.

I can't stand preferential voting.

We primarily have 3 parties to vote for in the area where I live; Liberal, Labour and the Greens.

Results for these 3 are:
GUEST, Owen - Liberal - 25,234 votes (41.17%)
DANBY, Michael - Australian Labor Party - 16,718 votes (27.27%)
HODGINS-MAY, Steph - The Greens - 15,167 votes (24.74%)

Those 3 together are 93.18% of the primary vote.

So of course Michael Danby has been re-elected, because the Greens gave second preferences to Labour.

So the guy with 41% of the vote on his own compared to 27 and 24% loses because they did a deal with each other. It's complete horse shit.

I don't care which party/nominee wins, but do it by majority (or have the first preference votes be worth like 10x the second preferences).

I do agree with you that elections should only be based on majority rule. Whoever gets the majority of the people's votes should be the winner. I really wish there could be a more convenient method for us to vote than going to the poles and casting my vote. I understand that voting by phone would not be secure enough for the election but neither is the method we currently use. With all the brain power in the world we should be able to come up with a better method.

Some choice comments from the previous election...

Also, in other news...
"Budgie smugglers have been given the Oxford English Dictionary’s seal of approval... and we can probably thank Tony Abbott. The Australian term used since the 1980s to refer to close-fitting swimming trunks, preferred by the former PM, is featured in the latest update of the respected dictionary."
