This story is seldom reported except in the context of the "need" for more gun control, of course. That the shooter is an Islamist terrorist somehow gets missed. Here is a spectacular hate crime and it got only brief mention, while some actor saying a racial slur gets in the headlines for weeks. The media cannot use this story over and over for gun control propaganda, even though they would like to. There is the danger people would put two and two together and realize the shooter had terrorist motives.
About media silence...see post 14, please.
