Two Marines investigated for picture of gun-toting soldier's picture threatening attack on gay clubs


Two California-based Marines are under investigation after one soldier seemed to threaten an Orlando-style attack on social media.

“Coming to a gay club near you!” an unidentified serviceman said, alongside a picture of himself biting his lip and holding a rifle.

The post was made to Camp MENdleton resale, a closed Facebook group of 25,000 members meant for those around the Marine Corps’ Camp Pendleton in San Diego County.

“Too soon?” the Marine who posted the hateful photo asked, presumably with at least some self-awareness that it came mere days after Omar Mateen’s attack on Pulse nightclub in Orlando, which left 49 people dead.
