Blue tick Twitter users have been using the mass shooting incident in Las Vegas to whip up identity-based anger and foster victimhood mentalities.
“I don’t understand,” wrote user Greg Baum, “Why it’s not terrorism. Because the shooter’s not Muslim?”
Re Las Vegas, I don't understand:
1. Why it's not terrorism. Because the shooter's not Muslim?
2. How guns make America safer.

“Just bc shooter wasn’t Muslim doesn’t mean not terrorism,” wrote Daily Beast contributor Dean Obeidallah.
