Tom Brokaw echoed ABC on Sunday by blaming the terrorist attack in Orlando Florida on the popularity of guns in America. Twitter is alight with folks weighing in from both sides, people pointing to the Islamic name and others pointing to the use of an AR-15,” he remarked on NBC News. He went on to say that he hoped a meaningful dialogue would come from the event.
Brokaw spoke well after the FBI announced at a press conference that there were possible ties between the shooter and radical Islam. But Brokaw chose to play it down by simply describing it as, “The worst mass shooting in our country’s history.” And exclaimed that, “everything seems to get settled by a gun for whatever reasons.”
