Pulse nightclub victims sue City of Orlando.

Police officer at the scene inside the club when the shooting started. Didn’t know that.

I thought it was all about guns.

Wow, this is crazy, I wonder if this guy worked in Broward County before.

he was looking for someone who’d entered the club with a fake ID. When he heard gunshots, he ran toward the entrance and confronted Mateen, but realized he was outgunned and needed backup
- yeah, I tend to wonder about that part.
- if you engage first, and effectively, it doesn't matter that you are 'outgunned' because the fight is already over......

I have to presume that if he was close enough to Mateen to see "that he was outgunned" and survived it, that he probably had an opportunity to make the shot and didn't take it.

Kind of ironic, that they are suing, "good guys with guns"
How many of the litigants, pushed to have guns taken away from law abiding citizens, and voted for those, who made it illegal for law abiding citizens to carry gun into the club?

These same people only want the police to have guns, then sue, when the police don't protect everyone. I am responsible for my own safety, so I refuse to patronize places, that are off limits, to LTC holders, because I cannot rely on, nor do I expect anyone else to protect me. If these people had put as much energy, into getting laws passed to allow carry, in more places, as they are, in trying to collect tax payer money, for their loss, this type of event would be less likely to happen in the future.
I sympathize with the victims, and my thoughts, have nothing to do with their sexual orientation. I believe the 2A, applies to all citizens, and the victims at this club, should have had the right to protect themselves. JMHO

Town of Castle Rock v. Gonzales seems like it'll be hard to overcome. Lot of the same justices, and first case was 7-2.
