    Night Club is still a thing? Anyways, very sad situation. R.I.P to the victims and another senseless act of violence.

    RIP to victims, prayers for their families.

    I fear this tragedy will be highly politicized in this election climate:

    Republicans - blame radical Islam
    Democrats - blame NRA, assault weapons and LGBT haters

    Too early to speculate on the motive. Need more facts.

    Horrible tragedy. Cannot think of such an attack on the LGBT community.

    Really? I'm pretty sure we all know what the motive was.

    Press conference going on right now. Sounds like he targeted the club because it was a gay club.

    Trump will have to walk a tightrope on this one, if it turns out this involved radical Islamic terrorism by a natural born U.S. citizen who used his second amendment rights to purchase an assault weapon.
