GVSU terrorism expert addresses history and gun control post Orlando mass shooting

He was an American citizen who worked as a security guard and had a firearms license. FBI Director James Comey says he espoused support for a number of often conflicting Islamic organizations. To help make sense of the mass shooting, Professor Jonathan White, a terrorism expert and executive director of the Homeland Defense Initiative at Grand Valley State University held a news conference.
