Massacre at Wounded Knee

Once again the media has gotten their facts wrong. The Orlando shootings were not the largest massacre in American history, it was the massacre at Wounded Knee, Dec. 29, 1890, when the U.S. Calvary killed more than 250 American Indians including women and children. But I suppose since it was Americans that killed Native Americans, I guess this just doesn’t count. How sad. Oh, and by the way, how did the Orlando shooter get into a bar carrying assault rifles? Did no one see this?
