MS Congressman, LGBT, Muslim Communities Discuss Florida Mass Shooting

Rob Hill is with the Human Rights Campaign of Mississippi. He’s concerned volatile political debates in Mississippi and nationwide over gay marriage and transgender issues are having a negative influence on people willing to act out their biases…

…Al-Turk, believes it’s time for political leaders to have a national debate about Middle East policies and include Muslims of goodwill. Mississippi Congressman Bennie Thompson, the ranking Democrat on the Committee for Homeland Security agrees.

“And that makes good sense. There are a lot of people who are talking about banning travel by Muslims coming to the U.S. But we can’t forget this gentleman was born in the United State,” said Thompson.

Congressman Thompson says detecting people who act alone like Omar Mateen is what keeps law enforcement officials up at night.
