Do you think that guns, AKA inanimate objects, are what kill people or do you think that immigration policies that open our doors to terrorists are what kill people?
According to Daniel Horowitz, immigrations policies are what bear the responsibility for this:
Democrats never miss an opportunity to push their dangerous and unconstitutional political agenda on the heels of a national tragedy. It’s time Republicans finally push back by harnessing the attention surrounding the Orlando attack to advance a safe and constitutional agenda that will secure our nation.
Guns are inanimate objects and there is an inalienable right for Americans to own and carry them for protection. Yet, even before the victims of the Orlando terror attack were buried, President Obama made this tragedy about guns. Democrats in the House had the impudence to disrupt a moment of silence in the House chamber with shouts demanding legislation on gun control. Where are the voices demanding legislation about the violent people instead of the object?
The details of this particular attack are still murky. There are a lot of uncanny details leaking out, with some reports suggesting this individual Muslim attacker might have been a disaffected homosexual. But what is clear is that similar to the San Bernardino jihadist, Omar Mateen was an American-born child of Muslim immigrants and had been on the FBI’s radar since 2013. As I noted last week, we are starting to follow in the footsteps of Europe in which the second generation of Muslim immigrants are more volatile than the initial immigrants who are preoccupied with settling in the country. We need to examine the long-term implications of mass-migration from the Middle East. Studying the mistakes of Europe is a good place to begin.
We can start by not exacerbating the problem and taking our existing record immigration numbers and augmenting them with over 100 Syrian immigrants per day. Ironically, it was just last week that a number of Senate Democrats and Republicans were pushing for more visas to be allotted to Afghanis. As I noted at the time, there is no way to properly vet which ones have family members with allegiance to the Taliban. It turns out that Mateen’s father is a Taliban supporter. Even if we can properly vet these refugees, which is unlikely given the speed at which they are being approved, there is no way to vet their children, as evidenced by Mateen, the San Bernardino jihadist, and the Chattanooga shooter.
The notion that we are going to bring in record numbers of Islamic immigrants and then ban guns is as ludicrous as…say…Europe! Won’t we ever learn from their mistakes?

Check out wha Paul Ryan is now doing after the attacks:
Following the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11, House Speaker Paul Ryan will hold a press conference on the need to reduce regulatory burdens for job creators.
On Tuesday, members of the House Republican Task Force on Reducing Regulatory Burdens will be “unveiling” their plan “aimed at making it easier to work, invest, produce, and build things in America,” according to a media advisory issued by the Speaker’s office. This is the latest phase of the rollout for Ryan’s “A Better Way, a bold agenda to tackle some of our country’s biggest challenges.”
Ryan has made clear that his “bold” agenda does not include temporarily pausing Muslim migration into the United States. Ryan has repeatedly opposed pausing Muslim migration insisting, “that’s not who we are.” On Sunday, Ryan told CBS that he “obviously” continues to oppose Donald Trump’s call for a pause on Muslim migration. Ryan said:
I obviously don’t support the Muslim ban, I do not think we should have a religious test on people who come into this country… because I believe in the First Amendment, I believe in religious freedom, I believe in religious liberty.
