Trending: Wisconsin Glassware Company Hands Out Guns to Employees for Christmas

So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading, Thursday, June 16, 2016.

Whoa. The Orlando shooter, Omar Mateen, was working with undercover FBI agents (whom he believed to be Islamic terrorist handlers) for almost a year before the FBI decided he was “not a threat.”

The New York Times is now outright blaming Republicans for the Orlando terrorist attack.

Bill Ayers is now lecturing America on preventing terrorism.

Mainstream liberals are now calling for the complete repeal of the 2nd Amendment! Sadly, it seems that Donald Trump may be cracking under the pressure. It looks as if he may be willing to accept some liberal demands on curtailing the 2nd Amendment.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>I will be meeting with the NRA, who has endorsed me, about not allowing people on the terrorist watch list, or the no fly list, to buy guns.</p>&mdash; Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) <a href=”https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/743078235408195584″>June 15, 2016</a></blockquote>

The Southern Baptist Convention has caused a bit of a stir this week by deciding to repudiate the display of the Confederate Battle Flag. The chief ethicist at the SBC, Russell Moore, argues that the organization is not trying to minimize the concerns of flag supporters but believes that it is more important to remember that Christians are a part of a larger family and that the flag does offend our African-American brothers and sisters. Pastor Doug Wilson finds the SBC’s decision-making process to be flawed and argues that there are far bigger battles to be fought.

John Stossel tells the story of that one time that he had lunch with Hillary Clinton… and boy is it a good one.
