I disagree with the Alexandria,Virginia, police and the FBI who declared the shooting of Congressman Steve Scalice  was the “act of a lone gunman” and “not an act of terror”.

The facts of the case are clear:  members of Congress (and some of their children) were terrorized by a gunman who opened fire without warning — leaving writings indicating that he wanted to kill all the GOP members of Congress present to change the composition of the House.

Anytime that a person or persons uses violence with the intent to change societal norms or institutions ( Congress) it terrorizes the individuals involved and the larger society — whether the gunman shouts allahu akbar before opening fire or not!

Terrifying is terrorism!
