Omar Mateen, the shooter who brought us the worst massacre ever on American soil, was on the FBI terrorist watch list, a victim of a mental disorder called bipolar personality (nee manic depressive) and a wife beater. Yet he was able to legally purchase an AR 15 assault rifle and a semi automatic 9MM hand gun. Legally because Congress was unable to get the necessary majority of 60 votes to make the sale of fire arms illegal to anyone with his background.
I know I'm not the only one who sees something very, very wrong here but apparently there are enough U.S. Congressman in the pockets of the NRA who disagree.
