Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? That's because they used knives and a truck!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 4, 2017
Then this morning in Orlando, Florida an all- too- familiar scene:
A 45-year-old man shot and killed five people at his former workplace in an industrial area near Orlando Monday morning before turning the gun on himself and committing suicide, authorities said.
At a press conference later Monday, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said the suspect worked for Fiamma Inc., an RV accessory company where the incident took place, until he was fired in April.
“He was a disgruntled employee that came back to this business this morning,” Demings told reporters, adding that there was no indication the shooter had any links to terrorism.
“This is likely a workplace violence incident. We will get more into the details of the investigation as it unfolds,” Demings said.
Demings identified the shooter as John Robert Neumann Jr., a white 45-year-old U.S. Army veteran who was discharged in 1999. He lived alone and has no family in the area, he said.We await the Giant Toddler's tiny fingers pounding out a tweet initiating a debate on gun violence any moment now.
