It’s not a gun problem, it’s an Islam problem.
Those blaming guns should know that the Orlando shooter, Omar Mateen, was under investigation by the FBI not once, but twice. Not only that, his mosque was under investigation by the State Department – which Hillary shut down because it “unfairly singled out Muslims.”
Err – where else is she expecting to find Islamic extremists? At a synagogue?
As it turns out, Mateen is hardly the first terrorist connected to that mosque. Clash Daily reports:
Congregants gathered as usual at the Fort Pierce Islamic Center for prayers on Sunday, the day after one of their members murdered 49 people and injured more than 50 more at a gay club in Orlando.
Omar Mateen, 29, is the second extremist to be tied to the small Florida mosque, which has about 200 regular attendees.
In 2014, Moner-Muhammad Abu Salha carried out a suicide bombing in Syria and is believed to be one of the first Americans to commit such an act overseas. Before joining the jihad, Salha lived in Vero Beach and attended the same Fort Pierce mosque as Mateen.
On Saturday, Mateen followed in Salha’s footsteps, killing 49 people partying at Orlando gay club Pulse, before he was shot dead by a SWAT team.
And those are just the ones we know of.
Some words to the wise: if you want to find extremists at home, we can start by investigating that mosque.
