At 2AM last night a gay bar in Florida was attacked by a Muslim man age 29. 50 people were killed, another 50 wounded, some in surgery.
ISIS claimed they were behind it about 30 minutes ago.
If your watching TV the majors and news channels have been covering the story.

Yeah, I've been following this story all day ... and what bothers me the most about it is that I haven't the foggiest notion how attacks like this can be prevented.

IMHO, problems of this kind can't be solved by gun-control laws, but only by major improvements in the mental health and criminal justice systems that will make it easier to detect potential homicidal maniacs and mass murderers in general before they strike. I also favor strict controls on assault weapons, and this is one of many details that I would include in reforms of the justice system, but I don't see it as a starting point.

At least Trump was forced to defend US gays against his anti-favorite group... a notch better.
Yes, obviously, gun control laws are not going to answer the widespread social discontent which is channelled to racism then to radical Islam sympathies. This guy was by far not a regular member of Daesh, he just was one of the unbehagen of society without real spirituality. So spirituality IS needed along with economic justice. We should start teaching psychic skills and self-discovery of the world on the basis of World in Heaven basis.

I agree with everything you just said, and would like to add that the best way to make the USA a safer place to live in is to help as many people as possible raise their consciousness to the point where they become able to spot "bad guys" instinctively and try to get action taken against them before they do something really awful. If a few of this latest shooter's relatives, friends, neighbors, and co-workers had such instincts they would have been able to get evidence that he was amassing weapons and the like and present it to the local authorities in time to prevent this tragedy.
