He's no more connected to ISIS or AQ than you and me.
Guy, it's not about "radical Islam." It's about how easy it is for crazy people of all stripes to access guns in this country. That is the fucking point. But you're too blinded by the boogeyman to see that.
Recent travel to the Middle East, deleting data off his computer the day before the shooting, a rented vehicle, IED manufacturing, nah, no data in the least to think this is anything other than a "crazy fanboy." It might turn out he was a "lone wolf" type person but only someone trying to be blind can not see investigating his ties to radical Islam makes sense.
And as I tried to tell you gently yesterday, pull your head out of your ass, and stop thinking easy availability to guns would stop this type of thing. I completely agree it will impact many gun crimes in the US, but as Paris amply demonstrates, money and planning will get guns anywhere in the world. And as Boston and London prove you don't need guns to kill a lot of people.
