...At least 50 people were killed and 53 others were injured in the shooting.... There were about 320 people inside the club at the time of the shootings and about 100 people were taken hostage.
Just one man shoots 100 and takes another 100 hostage? Seriously?
I'm thinking at least 4 or 5, all professionally trained.

They have to step their game up and invent it. We can find things in deep space to finding new atoms. We should be able to find a gun in a car. I'm not talking about the easy invention of manufacturing guns with built in tracking devices but actual scanners at the entrances of gun free zones. As soon as a gun is picked up by the scanner the police immediately go to stop the person and investigate.
The guy had a license so it wouldn't have made the slightest bit of difference if he was "investigated" for having a gun in his car.

"Step up their game"?
I'm an electrical engineer. Things just don't work like that. The laws of physics cannot be broken, irrespective of how badly someone wants them to be. A machine with the proper sensors can detect abnormalities in the electrical / magnetic / gravitational fields within a small area and alert that these fields are abnormai. They cannot detect materials which do not affect those fields, materials outside the area being scanned, nor materials covered by more massive materials that produce similar effects.
If we ever figure out an indicator that only 'weapons' emit, I'll let you know.

Fifty dead, fifty three injured. Shooter has direct ties to islamic terror, possibly directly to ISIS. obama to speak at 1:30pm. Any bets he does not call it islamic terror but rather a gun problem in the US?
