The administration will find a way to politicize it and tighten regulations on immigrants. As I recall, nothing was done in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shootings.

At least 6 dead now being reported. The governor is heading to the scene. They are not ruling out terrorist attack.

So World War II was not a war but a bunch of individuals killing each other because they felt like committing a violent criminal act?
Terrorism is defined as an action that is designed to effect political change through fear and violent actions.
We are at war with ISIS / Al Queda / Extremist Islam what have you.
Their goal is to break the west and impose Sharia law. Before you think about denying that they have made public statements on that goal. Your logic, and correct me if I am wrong, is akin to a person getting drunk on purpose, getting behind the wheel of a car on purpose, driving onto the highway on purpose and intentionally striking as many cars ah he can on purpose but only charging him with littering because of the debris he left.
While debris is left and is a crime it ignore the larger crime.
Generally speaking random murders in the US are not based on an attempt to change public policy or effect political change.
Terrorism is designed to affect public policy and push political change.
