50 people were killed and 53 were injured after a gunman opened fire inside a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, about 2am. They were all shot dead by a gunman identified as Omar Mateen, an American citizen who lives in Florida. He was apparently fully prepared and organised to commit this senseless crime, he was also found dead inside the club. At this time it is being hailed as a terrorist attack, but only based upon the evidence thus far. The crime is still early and more and more evidence will be found out as time goes on.
For now, my heart and thoughts go out to the families of those who were lost during this tragedy as well as to the injured who will need to recover from such a horrific and violent act. I've no other words to say to every one of them other than be strong. That goes for all those within the community surrounding the area as well as the whole LGBT+ community.
While I am all for the ability to own a weapon in a desire
