Orlando Shooting Kills 50 People in Gay Club

gunman

Orlando Shooting kills 50 people. Early sunday morning a gunman took it upon himself and opened fire inside Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando Florida. The murderer has been identified as 29 year old Omar Mateen.

Authorities report that Omar Mateen had legally purchased the weapons, and other unidentified devices.

President Obama calls the attack an “act of terror.”  And investigators suspect that this is an act of terror inspired by  Islamic state.

“The shooter targeted a nightclub where people came together to be with friends to dance and to sing and to live,” Obama said. “The place where they were attacked is more than a nightclub. It was a place of solidarity and empowerment, where people have come together to raise awareness, to speak their minds and to advocate for their civil rights.”

Ex wife of Omar Mateen told The Post that he was not a stable person. She claimed that he would come home and beat her just because the laundry wasn’t done.

U.S. report cites safety lapses at New Mexico nuclear lab

By Laura Zuckerman (Reuters) – Chronic lapses in safety procedures at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico may have led to a radiation leak that has forced a prolonged shutdown across the state of the only permanent U.S. nuclear waste repository, federal inspectors said on Wednesday. The inspectors, in a sharply critical report, sought to explain how a barrel of plutonium-tainted debris from the nuclear weapons lab near Santa Fe ended up improperly packaged before it was shipped off for burial 300 miles away at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant. … …read more
