My sincerest sympathies to family and friends of the victims, but, this has nothing to do with a travel ban.

This is work place violence. This is an American killing Americans. It is not a new phenomena and by demanding a travel ban it takes attention away from the real problem facing Americans.

Five employees (click here) were killed in a shooting at Fiamma, a business on North Forsyth Road near Hanging Moss Road near Orlando, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office reported this morning.

The shooter — a former “disgruntled employee” who was fired in April — then killed himself, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said.

“Sad day for us once again here in Orange County. … Hearts and prayers go out to family of the victims,” Demings said.

Four people — three males and a female — were dead at the scene, and another male victim died at the hospital, Demings said. Seven other people inside the business were not injured....

Seung-Hui Cho was a second generation immigrant from South Korea. His family had worried about mental health all during his childhood.

Two Americans affiliated with "The Bundy Ranch" took their hatred of the USA government to a new level and killed two Los Vegas police officers after being kicked off the illegally occupied Bundy Ranch land. Can't pick your family, but, evidently you can choose your friends.

This time a 21 year old white supremacist took the lives of nine people at one of the most sacred African American churches in the country. And he didn't make a grand entrance. No, nothing like that, he simply watched them prayed and talked to them about their lessons and then simply stood up and killed them. In cold blood even after he was in their living presence. Has hatred ever run so deep.

(right above) This mass shooting took place at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston, South Carolina on June 17, 2015. Nine people were killed during a prayer service at the church. Later, Dylann Roof confessed to committing the shooting to start a "race war."

An American Robert Lewis Dear, Jr. decided the day after Thanksgiving he would act on his anti-abortion identity and kill some people. Politics wasn't enough he had to make it real.

One policeman and two civilians were killed and nine other people were injured. During initial trial proceedings, Dear openly expressed anti-abortion views which could be interpreted as motive for the attack.

These people are all Americans. They are a few examples of the sickness that is part of the American landscape, called hate. There was only one that ever had his feet on foreign soil as a child. All these men decided their identity was tied up in a faulty male value in hate. That is all these men had in common, hate. Some had mental health problems and others simply wanted to kill for reasons of hate. 

THERE IS NOTHING about these killers that spells Travel Ban ANYWHERE! While the White House plays with ideas of hate, the Americans that follow him are diluted to think he is right.

There is a specific exception in US firearms law that permits a non-immigrant alien to purchase and possess provided they have a hunting license issued to them from the State they are a resident of and as long as all other Federal and State laws are followed on firearms ownership.
