And one that cuts to the heart of partisanship over principles: If the Orlando shooter does not represent all Muslims, then why does he represent all gun owners? Now folks could easily say gun laws, preventing killings, it's different. But I'd be interested to see how they say it is different. Clearly they would. They would not say 'because we love Muslims but hate gun owners!' Even if that was the case, they wouldn't be stupid enough to say it. So it is a good question, if not a bit snarky.
Of course the opposite could be asked. If we shouldn't use him to represent all guns and gun owners, then why should we use him to represent Islam? I'm not saying there aren't answers, but I would be curious to see who had the best ones.
Just kicking things around. I had hoped to avoid plunging into the politics of it all for at least another day, but almost the entire planet seems to have moved to full blown punditry, so I figured I'd join in.
