Stop attacks now

It is frustrating to see how many journalists, pundits and politicians — even our commander in chief — deflect the attention of Americans from what was clearly an Islamic extremist terror attack in Orlando and twist it into a gun-control issue.

The facts are that President Obama has not kept the American people safe and has failed to implement effective measures to combat a terrorist enemy whose mission is to kill innocent people because they do not submit to a poisonous ideology.

Every American should wake up and recognize that our resolve should be to prevent further attacks and to eliminate this ideological enemy that boasts of its extraordinarily evil intentions against innocent Americans.

Gun control will not achieve that end. It is obvious that terrorists will employ whatever tactics are necessary, to carry out their evil acts in the United States and elsewhere.
