Orlando's Pulse nightclub, where 49 people were gunned down in what became the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, will reopen at a new location, according to the club’s owner, Barbara Poma.
Barbara Poma tells a Central Florida television station that she wants to reopen the gay club because the community needs it and she doesn't want to, quote, "let hate win."
Poma returns to the site two times each week, which is now adorned with tributes for the victims.
Poma says she is actively looking at new sites that have plenty of parking, are not in a residential area and are affordable.
She tells the television station that she has lost thousands in income because of the shooting, but said that will not stop her from proving that hate will not win.
In the meantime, the first town hall meeting to discuss a Pulse memorial, which will be created at the site of the nightclub, is scheduled for September 13th.
