Latest shooting is domestic terrorism?

White House says it's premature to call Las Vegas attack that has, so far, left 58 people dead and hundreds injured an act of domestic terrorism.
Domestic Terrorism is defined as the committing of terrorist acts in the perpetrator's own country against their fellow citizens.
Whether he converted to Islam or not remains to be seen, some claim that he did however there is no evidence to back that up and the group that claims it wants to take credit, earned or not.
His brother says the shooter was just a guy and freaked.  
So we aren't sure of motive, do you think that this is still an act of domestic terrorism?

Yes, absolutely.

Terrorism doesn't have to be caused by a different country. It definitely can be terrorism. "the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims"

Side: Yes, absolutely.

Oh it's domestic all right. It looks we've got on our hands a full blown plot to use force to kill the new Jews with the elephant badges...

Side: Yes, absolutely.

I would tend to agree that this would in fact be an act of domestic terrorism, by its very definition it meets the requirements so I was wondering what other people thought and why, as to why it wouldn't be considered it.

Side: Yes, absolutely.

I would say yes because you do not have to be part of some large group to be a terrorist and the shooting had caused a large amount of blood lost and lives lost. If you said it is not terrorism I'm not saying you wrong I just do not agree with your decision.

Side: Yes, absolutely.

Alton Nolan's lawyer says Islam itself makes a person insane.

Yes maybe so but this man was not part of any groups in Islam and never showed any signs of this, this man had something wrong in his head and broke.

Side: Yes, absolutely.

Could be, but we don't know yet. Perhaps he was just insane? Perhaps he was seeking name fame or some form of attention? Perhaps he was just mad about his erectile disfunction? Perhaps he was a crackpot on one of these debate websites and someone told him off?

I agree the odds are pretty good it was some form of terrorism but it isn't proven until it is proven.

"Perhaps he was just mad about his erectile disfunction?"

Nice. That must be it or he got a tampon stuck in his dick.

Reflecting back on the Congressional baseball game did that Democrat have erectile dysfunction causing him to take aim at Republicans before the police officers sent him to his provable hell.

Side: Yes, absolutely.

In that case I think he had a raging boner. He probably neglected to seek medical help after it continued for more than a few hours. Blame Cialis.

Side: Yes, absolutely.

Stringent gun control laws and enforcement of them would have kept the automatic weapons out of the hands of the left of center madman.

The guns were not automatic when he purchased them or when they entered the hotel, he had modified them afterwards

Side: Yes, absolutely.

Shooter modified the weapons after entering the hotel and the inside information you have should be shared with LVMPD.

The police spokesman clearly stated that the authorities were examining items, other than weapons, that were found in the assassin's bedroom.

My guess is that the delay in publishing details of these items is due to our political masters deliberating whether or not to reveal the politically sensitive nature of their content.

We mustn't disclose information which may enrage the public.

Truth will be revealed and watch the heads spin when that day comes.

You American idiots are just so, so fucking stupid. Every time there is a shooting you blame Muslims. You blame Muslims and defend guns. How is it possible that an entire country can be this stupid? Tell me, I'm eager to hear.

Actually I don't think he converted to Islam. Which is why the second part to that sentence (that you left off) was "some claim that he did however there is no evidence to back that up and the group that claims it wants to take credit, earned or not."

There are multiple factors that we need to look at; gun control and mental health care are two. But we need to recognize where the problems are and work towards a solution.

Side: Yes, absolutely.
