Obama Calls For More Gun Control, Doesn’t Link Orlando Terror Attack To Islam – Daily Mail
.

.
President Obama furthered his gun control message today when addressing the massacre in Orlando that killed 50 people, making it the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

‘Although it’s still early in the investigation we know enough to say that this was an act of terror and an act of hate,’ Obama said, making no reference to ISIS or Islamic terror in his brief remarks.

Obama called the shooting spree, at the gay nightclub Pulse during Pride month in the United States, a reminder of how easy it is for someone to get a hold of a weapon that could kill people in a ‘school, or a house of worship, or a movie theater, or in a nightclub.’

‘And we have to decide if that’s the kind of country we want to be,’ Obama said…

Omar Mateen Pledged Allegiance To ISIS, Official Says – CNN

The gunman who killed 50 people at an Orlando nightclub pledged allegiance to ISIS and mentioned the Boston bombing in a 911 call, according to a U.S. official.

Suspect Omar Mateen made the call more than 20 minutes into the attack, a law enforcement official said.

Authorities haven’t officially released the gunman’s name, but several law enforcement officials have identified him to CNN as Mateen.

The 29-year-old, who was killed by police, is from Fort Pierce, Florida, the officials said.

Local and federal bomb squad teams entered Mateen’s apartment there Sunday afternoon as authorities tried to piece together details about the attack. Investigators haven’t revealed what they found there.

The gunman was born in New York, a U.S. official said, and his parents are originally from Afghanistan.

Authorities haven’t said what led Mateen to attack the Pulse nightclub, which bills itself as “the hottest gay bar in Orlando.”…

ISIS Officially Claims Responsibility For Orlando Massacre – Vocativ
.

.
ISIS Amaq News Agency has officially claimed responsibility for the deadly shooting in Orlando, saying that “a soldier of the Islamic State has carried out the attack.”

Suspected gunman Omar Mateen killed 50 people inside a gay nightclub early Sunday morning; shortly beforehand, he called 911 to pledge his allegiance to the Islamic State. Long before ISIS issued its response, users on one of the main ISIS forums praised the violence.

“Oh America, you will not sleep and shut an eye as long as there are Mujahedeen. May God will bless you my brother and grant you with heaven,” wrote one supporter. Said another, “Allah Akbar, the target is a place for deviant people, who also known as homosexuals.”…

Another Planned Attack? Suspect With Explosives, Camo Outfit, Assault Weapons Arrested In West Hollywood – Zero Hedge

While initial reports are scarce and there is no confirmation yet, moments ago a ProPublica reporter wrote that according to LA law enforcement, a suspect dressed in a camouflage outfit and wearing a security badge, transporting explosives and assault weapons, was arrested in West Hollywood, a popular neighborhood among the Los Angeles gay community, just as the local gay pride Parade was set to begin.

As a reminder, tens of thousands of people were expected to flood West Hollywood on Sunday for the annual L.A. Pride Parade. The festival celebrating the region’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community kicked off Friday with a musical lineup that features more than 40 artists, headlined by pop stars Charli XCX and Carly Rae Jepsen. Held in West Hollywood Park, festival hours are 2 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday and noon to 11 p.m. on Sunday.

If confirmed, this may suggest some coordination in attacks targeting gay events across the US.

Update from the LA Times:

Authorities in Santa Monica found possible explosives as well as assault rifles and ammunition in the car of a man who told them he was in town for the L.A. Pride festival in West Hollywood, a law enforcement source said.

Early Sunday, there was a call to Santa Monica police of a suspected prowler near Olympic Boulevard and 11th Street. Patrol officers responded and encountered an individual who told officers he was waiting for a friend. That led officers to inspect the car and find several weapons and a lot of ammunition as well as tannerite, an ingredient that could be used to create a pipe bomb…

Muslim Mass Murderer Omar Mateen Had Been Investigated By FBI, Tied To Islamic Terror Groups – Pamela Gellar

The jihadi who slaughtered at least 50 at a gay nightclub in Florida last night was known to law enforcement. More of their “Muslim outreach,” I’m sure.

“Omar Mateen, Terrorist Who Attacked Orlando Gay Club, Had Been Investigated by FBI,” Daily Beast:

Mateen was a ‘known quantity’ to federal law enforcement before he killed 53 people in the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.

Mateen came to the attention of federal authorities twice prior to being identified as the gunman in the Orlando nightclub mass shooting, a senior law enforcement source told The Daily Beast.

The source reports that Mateen became a person of interest in 2013 and again in 2014. The Federal Bureau of Investigation at one point opened an investigation of him, but subsequently closed the case when it produced nothing that appeared to warrant further investigation.

“He’s a known quantity,” the source said. “He’s been on the radar before.”

The gunman is said by the source to have been born in New York and to have been married for a time to a woman from New Jersey…
