Summary of this bill

Five years after one of the worst mass shootings ever, is a memorial site the way to commemorate the attack?

Context

On June 12, 2016, a gunman killed 49 people at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando. The club itself has been closed ever since the tragedy there.

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.
