So sad.  So many lives ruined.  And in just a bizarre confluence of American hot-buttons of assault weapons, radical Islam, and LGBT victimization.  I suppose the result is that this will be spun a thousand different ways for a thousand different agendas.  We should not forget, though, that this is just a sad and brutal loss of young life.  As for my own spin, I haven’t read all that much yet because I mostly just tried to enjoy my Sunday with family time, the pool, and Euro 2016, but my favorite comment so far comes from Seth Masket:

Just noting that in response to terror, our political system will consider limits on all sorts of fundamental rights — free association, speech, movement, commerce, privacy, religion, etc. — but gun ownership is never on the table.
