A nearly complete list of those responsible for the Orlando massacre

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Raine1967 (a host of the General Discussion forum).

So far, from DU and other sources, the following have been held to be responsible
for the horrible mass shooting:

The FBI
Gun culture
LGBT culture
The LGBT rights movement
The NRA
Wayne LaPierre
Every gun owner in the US
Gun Nuts
Guntards
The Second Amendment
Anybody who doesn't support immediate repeal of the Second Amendment
Assault Rifles
Assault Weapons
Extended magazines
Detachable magazines
AR-15s
Abrahamic religion
Islam
Wahabi Islam
ISIS
ISIS propaganda on social media
The victims
The LGBT rights movement
The shooter's employer
Scary-looking guns
Popular culture
Social media
Violent media

I can't help but feel that this list is somehow incomplete- perhaps some kind poster
could complete it for us?

1. Well, you could mention the shooter, but he's already dead.

I'm not liking the 50 for 1 rate, myself.

8. After checking, a couple of people did blame the actual shooter

However, that's not nearly as self-righteously satisfying as blaming one's
bete noire of choice that didn't actually do it...

17. The state sponsors of Daesh terrorism.

I'm dead serious and these countries know who they are. They need to be dealt with directly.
