The Vegas shooter doesn't appear to be a terrorist. Terrorism requires a strong political motive and these fucks with political motives make sure we get their message by shouting a slogan or something of that sort.

A lunatic killer isn't necessarily a terrorist.

But he administered terror..in the purest sense of the word he's a terrorist..maybe not politically motivated but he brought terror with deadly effect.

Correct. Terrorists, spread fear via a network of people, this guy didn't think he was going to live past this one act. And, it is politically motivated (terrorism) as you stated.

Can also have social causes, the fact of the matter is this, by doing such an act he performed an act meant to terrorise. cool

Dunno why they trying to redefine the English language to suit politics.

1+1 is 2 no matter how you twist it,fundamentally the man's a big terrorist,more successful than many politically motivated attackers.

Even folks on here are equating the act differently, as if it is somehow not as evil, unbelievable.

What was his motive? Either way semantics don't matter. This has more to do with gun violence than anything else.

By your logic, The west Indian fast bowlers of yesteryear administered terror with their bowling on the cricket field.. What should we call them?

It is just as evil.

You said it yourself, "the guy is crazy". It is not normal behavior, terrorists have an agenda to bring about change, if one dies, others will see it through.

Totally..

What they fail to realize that this social homegrown terrorism is much more dangerous than the outside politically motivated brand.

Doh worry they go twist up and make a new word fuh it and even give it an acronym..who knows maybe it's just 'affluenza' or even PTSD but certainly not an act of 'terror' as defined by THEM.

To me the semantics coming from everywhere else.

Yes they did..they definitely terrorized hapless opposition batsmen but terror in sport is far different to the terror we saw yesterday in Vegas..that would be the semantics free version... Hmmmm sad that you can't tell the difference..

All this because allyuh want to reserve that bit of genuine meaningful and indisputable English language to label a choice few,even ISIS must be in awe of that local act of terror,they have been put out of work and made to look incompetent by that terror inducing all American..

No matter the motivation the incident is of 'political' proportions and it succeeded in it's aim of delivering wholesale terror..

1 man injured, maimed and killed 600 in about 10 to 15 minutes. Peeps need to slowly digest that and give it some thought.

You seriously need to go check homeland security's definition of terror or what the Patriot Act defines as terrorism. You may be surprised at what u find.

No one is saying that he is not dangerous, in some ways, he is more dangerous because he is betraying the trust society placed in him to act like a normal person.

It's like having a driver license, society expect you to perform the normal task of driving on the road. So, when that trust is betrayed, we are all puzzled.

According to Nevada state law, an "act of terrorism" is described as follows: "Any act that involves the use of violence intended to cause great bodily harm or death to the general population."

Does the NRA get labeled as supporting terrorism?

They actively fund, support, push for legislation and the proliferation in support of weapons clearly not intended by the 2nd amendment.

Why is it unpatriotic to seek gun control?

The NRA is too powerful as a member organization, politically, and only the brave can call it as a manipulator of the 2nd amendment for the benefit of weapon manufactures.

Damn it...HE should have killed 500 and wounded 50...cause nothing seems to be getting through to these gun loving people...

I couldnt un pick my teeth of course but since Sandy Hook and nobody cared to budge...I had given up since then..

That place is run on FEAR and thats what Trump understood from Day one.
