The tragedy of the Orlando shooting — perpetrated by radical Islamist Omar Mateen — is still fresh on the minds of American citizens who are asking questions and demanding answers as to how and why such events could happen.
How could a terrorist who pledged allegiance to ISIS be allowed to purchase firearms? Why didn’t the FBI pursue their investigations on him further? By blatantly ignoring obvious red flags, it almost feels as though the FBI wants these terrorist attacks to happen. Is there any other logical explanation for why they can continue at such an alarming rate?
Unfortunately, Mateen wasn’t the first terrorist who walked free after being interviewed by the FBI — and if history repeats — itself he won’t be the last.
Boston Bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev was interviewed by the FBI before the Boston Marathon, discovering that he had extremist materials on his computer. For some reason, he was let go, and we all know the heartbreaking events that took place next.
It has also been revealed that the authorities were well aware of the terrorist behind the Paris attacks, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, and yet they refused to act. Why? Are they afraid of the backlash they might receive from the Regressive Left for attacking the protected species of Islam?
Despite more and more American citizens being gunned down by these radical monsters, it still seems as though nothing is being done to prevent it from happening again? What progress did we make after the Boston Marathon? What progress did we make after the Paris attacks? What progress will we make now — after the largest shooting massacre in the history of our country?
Until we can freely call these attacks what they are — Islamic terrorism — there’s little hope that the United States government will do its job to protect its citizens. Until that day comes, the only hope is to exercise your Second Amendment rights to protect yourself and those around you.
