history, but is it terrorism?
While much will hinge on the motives of a white gunman attacking a mostly white country music crowd, that uncomfortable question also hits at some of America most divisive issues: race, religion and politics. citizen Stephen Paddock, had no connection to an international terrorist group. The Islamic State group earlier claimed responsibility, saying Paddock was a recent convert. But beyond the claim, which offered no proof, the shooter motives are unclear and little was known immediately beyond his name and his choice of target.
Paddock, from Mesquite, Nevada, apparently killed himself as police closed in on his hotel room. The lack of known motive so far clouds whether the shooting meets traditional definitions of terrorism. Those generally include having a political, economic, wholesale jerseys religious or social goal; and using violence to convey a message to a broader audience than just the victims.
The absence of information leaves many to fall back on a debate that has roiled the United States since even before Timothy McVeigh used a truck bomb against a federal building in Oklahoma City in 1995.
McVeigh was convicted not of terrorism, but of using a weapon of mass destruction and of murder for the deaths of eight federal law enforcement officers who died in the blast, which killed a total of 168 people.

Then President Barack Obama called it act of terror and an act of hate. hours of the Pulse shooting, super bowl jerseys then candidate Donald Trump send a self congratulatory tweet being right on radical Islamic terrorism. On Monday, as president, Trump offered condolences to victims and their families and called the shooting act of pure evil.
Ahead of Monday shootings, Randall Law, who wrote A History, said he believed there is a racial component to the United States reluctance to clarify or prosecute with domestic terror laws.
Many Americans, he said, think only with foreign names and people with dark skin funding foreign ideologies would commit such horrific acts.
Law said there are wholesale jerseys complex arguments against drawing up a comprehensive definition of domestic terrorism in law. First Amendment concerns arise in legal discussions about making domestic terrorism a crime. Many worry the federal government would criminalize speech, religion or ideology.
Regardless, Nevada law has a clear definition of terrorism: use or attempted use of sabotage, coercion or violence which is intended to cause great bodily harm or death to the general population. mayor of Las Vegas, Carolyn Goodman, made no reference to that on Monday, simply describing the shooter as crazed lunatic, Wholesale Football Jerseys full of hate. a crime is called terrorism has important practical implications, as Connecticut Rep. Jim Himes, whose state endured the mass killing at Sandy Hook jerseys cheap elementary school, in 2012, pointed out.
