Two more mass shooting in less than 24 hours, 29 people dead, and who knows how many of the severely wounded might still die ?? What does it have to prove that our POTUS has filled the country with so much racial hatred and bias against anyone that's not white ?? Again AR style rifles come into play, multi round fire guns that can kill and injure a lot of people in a few minutes.. These are the guns of choice that should be taken off the streets except for anyone not in the military or a police dept...

I woke up this morning with news of another mass shooting.  Do we ever get numb to one mass shooting after another?  This seem to be the current normal that we have come to see. Thoughts and prays are just words that doesn't seem sufficient to address the currency of destruction.


Trump's racist rhetoric provides a nod to white nationalist to create havoc. White supremacist seem very comfortable to come out of the closet with words of "blood and soil", they will not replace us as Trump famously said...go back to where you come from....  In the mean time GOP legislators refuse to enact safer gun laws. 


As we can see, this doesn't end well. Will anything get done to address it?  No..we need to send Trump packing and flip the Senate to neutralize McConnell

The people of the U.S. comprise only a few percent of the world's population, but we own more than half the world's guns.  This ain't rocket science, peeps...

Pete Buttigieg: America ‘Under Attack From Homegrown White Nationalist Terrorists’


Following Saturday’s mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, called for stricter gun laws and condemned white nationalist ideology.







Beto O’Rourke Links ‘Racist’ Donald Trump To Deadly El Paso Shootings


Trump stokes racism that “leads to violence,” the ex-congressman says as the president offers “thoughts and prayers” in a tardy tweet.

Beto is spot-on.  Hate crimes have spiked in the past several years.  Trump's support of the alt-right and his flammable rhetoric are flagrant attempts to legitimize White Nationalists, racists and hate mongers.

Republicans continue to say, all the left wants to do is take our guns away... The program we have in this country isn't working, taking away the guns hasn't happened, but the mass shootings continue and even at a faster rate than anyone ever thought it could... It isn't working the way it is, why not try something else ?? why not put laws that have tougher gun checks, tougher laws to get control of these kind of guns and once and for try to get as many of the AR kind of rifles off the streets and into the hands of the military and law enforcement, the only people that should have these kind of weapons...


Our President and our Rep. controlled Senate refuses to even tackle the problem, using the NRA's under the table money to keep getting re-elected, they are throwing the innocent people of this country under the bus in order to keep themselves in high places, it's time for Moscow Mitch, and the rest of the Senate to stop bills coming to the Senate and let the wish of the people go through... Just how many innocent people have to get murdered by white supremest nuts is it going to take to get something done ??

Destroyed your AR yet? Or turned it over the police/military?

Have you called your members of Congress and urged them to enact reasonable gun controls?  Urged the banning of assault weapons?  If not, you have no business lecturing others.  Do you think we Dem supporters would fight such a ban?

I'm no fan of Trumph, but I find this a bit silly. You are blaming Trumph's words for driving mentally ill people to shoot up crowds of strangers (of all colors)? I don't buy that. These people are being driven by their own sickness.

Trump helps the crazies, voluntarily or involuntarily so, to focus their anger, mania or whatever else drives them.  To deny that is to deny reality.
