Summary of this bill
Five years after one of the worst mass shootings ever, is a memorial site the way to commemorate the attack?
The gunman, who was radicalized over the internet and pledged allegiance to ISIS, was shot and killed by police. At the time, it was the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. It’s now the second-deadliest, behind 2017’s attack at a Las Vegas country music concert.
