Early Sunday morning (Jun 12), an American-born man who pledged allegiance to ISIS opened fire at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, killing 50 people and injuring 53.

The shooter, Omar Mateen, was killed when police raided the club, but only after unleashing the largest mass shooting in American history.

Today, as news of the horrendous event poured out, reactions from around the world started rolling in.

President Obama came out condemning the act, which he declared an act of terrorism. He expressed his condolences to the victims, their families, and the city of Orlando as well as the entire LGBQT community who was especially affected by this shooting.

Obama also used this statement, as he has been forced to do so many times before, to express his desire for more substantial gun law reform to avoid further travesties like this in the future.

“We as Americans, we grieve the brutal murder and horrific massacre of dozens of innocent people…Although it’s still early in the investigation, we know enough to say that this was an act of terror and an act of hate…This is an especially heartbreaking day for all of our friends, all of our fellow Americans who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender…we have to decide if that is the kind of country we want to be.”

Other politicians came out on Twitter sending their support to victims of the shooting.

Bernie Sanders took a harder stance when he released his statement, saying,”I’ve got to tell you for 25 years now, I’ve believed that we should not be selling automatic weapons which are designed to kill people, and we’ve got to do everything we can on top of that to make sure that guns do not fall into the hands of people who should not have them.”

But politicians weren’t the only ones coming out with statements after the shooting. A number of celebrities and athletes joined in the conversation as well, sending their support and asking when massacres like this will end.

And while politicians and celebrities mourn the losses of last night and demand answers on the front of gun reform, one particular group has failed to make a statement: The National Rifle Association (NRA).
