Trump now claims he never suggested arming club-goers

Notice, she has no concerns about right wing domestic terrorism, let alone controlling it. Or the fact that more Americans are killed by children with guns than by "Islamic terrorists".

Following the Orlando shooting, President Obama is only one of the many people now speaking out about where they stand on heightened gun regulations. The gunman would have been "just open target practice".

"I truly hope that Senators rise to the moment and do the right thing", President Barack Obama said.

Should people in clubs carry guns? The Gun Violence Archive defines a mass shooting as one in which at least four people are killed.

We look forward to the day when America will free itself from the shameful gun culture, which is quite unbecoming for such a great nation. But there doesn't seem to be any other way to interpret his argument.

An off-duty Orlando police officer was working security at the club when the shooting occurred, authorities have said.

Trump made the case on the weekend that the US should consider profiling Muslims inside the country as a terrorism-fighting tool, the latest example of his backing positions that could single out a group based on its religion. Although Trump frequently reminds us he has a permit to carry a gun, there's no indication he's ever done so. Even if denied, they can always beg, borrow or steal the weapons needed to perpetrate a bloodbath. Nowhere does it say anything about accuracy.

Euro 2016: Sadiku gives Albania first goal ever in global event
At Euro 2016, the criticism of Pogba was immediate after his flat performance in France's opening game against Romania. Then there was the match ball, which also came in for punishment. "We played with our head, with mental strength".

Numerous guns shown at the event were similar to the assault rifle used by Mateen. Estimates place the total number of civilian guns at 300-400 million.

People who hear this story may draw different morals. "And this is something that obviously I've talked about for a very long time", he said Monday. The real estate mogul also took aim at President Obama's call for changes in gun laws in the wake of Orlando.

"Those who defend the easy accessibility of assault weapons, should meet these families and explain why that makes sense...and why it is they think our liberty requires these repeated tragedies?"

Last Wednesday, the billionaire businessman tweeted that he would "be meeting with the NRA, who has endorsed me, about not allowing people on the terrorist watch list, or the no fly list, to buy guns". The proposals have been roundly criticized by many Republican leaders, including House Speaker Paul Ryan.

"He didn't have anything in his record that would indicate he was any more unsafe to our country than you or I do". Lindsey Graham of SC told the backers during one of the bill's pathetic trips to nowhere. Perhaps, after all this time, we'll get some pathetically minor action.

"This loophole allowed the alleged Charleston shooter to buy his gun despite his prior arrest record".
