From what I am reading, Omar Mateen decided to kill a bunch of people THEN and only then, he bought a gun and proceeded to do so. This is interesting because none of the headlines mention him by name, they call him the Gunman, not Omar, not Terrorist, not Criminal or madman, but Gunman. Google it and see. What if he had't been able to buy a gun? He was determined to mass murder, if he had used a home-made bomb, he may well have killed many more than 49 people. Or maybe something as simple as house-hold chlorine bleach and battery acid? The headlines could call him the gas-man or the bomb man but it just would't serve the media's agenda as well as Gunman does so they would probably refer to him as Omar Mateen. By calling him Gunman, this implies that he bought a gun and somehow, the gun influenced him to do this vile deed and people are gullible enough to believe this. For some convoluted reason, inspite of his claims that he was Muslim Extremist on a mission, because he was here rather than say, in France...he isn't a Muslim extremist but rather a home-grown mass-murdering Gunman?
