Terrorism in Florida. Gunman Omar Mateen, after pledging his loyalty to the Islamic State, kills 50 and wounds 53 this morning at a gay nightclub in Orlando. We review responses from Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and President Obama as we consider the political implications of this ISIS-inspired atrocity. Why are President Obama and Hillary Clinton emphasizing "gun control" measures in their public statements? Is Donald Trump more discerning to focus on "radical Islam" and America's immigration policy? How relevant are Sen. Jeff Sessions' concerns that Hillary Clinton, if elected, would hasten to undermine the Second Amendment in America? How will members of the LGBT community be responding to the tragedy? And how might American attitudes towards immigration and border security be affected? Also, we offer plentiful criticism of Mitt Romney as per his weekend "Never Trump" conclave in Utah. With Listener Calls & Music via Social Distortion, Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Sex Pistols.
