Hey, mainstream media: This man is not a ‘gunman.’ He’s a terrorist

I fundamentally disagree with this assessment. With the information that I have, I can’t be 100% certain that he is not a terrorist. I have not seen anything that shows that he is. He seems more of a crazy person.
The article’s author, based on information from homeland security, defines terrorism so broadly that any act of violence would qualify. You expect this sort of nonsense if you get in an argument at the bar…but spread from the media? WTF?
