Why would El Paso want a visit from the the guy who offers nothing but the usual Republican thoughts and prayers and is at least partially to blame for the climate of hatred that fueled this murder?

Default How many gun control advocates in the El Paso Mall?

How many people who could have been armed left their gear in the car? the saddest most bitter stories ever come from these crackpot shooters taking over a location and the law abiding citizens left their guns outside. One story happened years ago when a Sunday morning breakfast turned into a nightmare for a woman with her parents. A "no guns" sign in the window had her leave her weapon out in the car. A gunman took over the restaurant and began shooting randomly, everybody dived for cover. The normally armed woman had to watch helplessly as her parents were gunned down in front of her. If you're getting shot at there aren't many glad to be disarmed.

Pretty sure the legal residents of El Paso don't feel that way. Is a girl with a short skirt partially to blame for a rape?

I'd like to see, for starters, some people embrace the anathema known as a "history lesson" and learn about the 1966 Texas tower sniper and figure out that, too, was no certain specific ideology's or individual's "fault".

Maybe not, but Trump certainly had lots to do with the El Paso shooter’s actions.

No, but the guy telling his followers to rape her is.

"...A video of President Donald Trump speaking at a rally in Florida in May is resurfacing on social media after mass shootings in Texas and Ohio over the weekend.

In the video, Trump is seen smiling and joking after an attendee at the rally yelled that the US Border Patrol should "shoot" migrants at the border. The person's yell was in response to Trump's question of how to deal with migrants when the US couldn't use violence."Don't forget: We don't let them, and we can't let them, use weapons. We can't," Trump told the crowd. "Other countries do. We can't. I would never do that. But how do you stop these people? You can't."


"Shoot them!" the audience member shouted. Some in the crowd clapped and cheered, while others grimaced.

Trump can be seen smirking and shaking his head. Trump them joked, "That's only in the Panhandle you can get away with this stuff." He reemphasized, "Only in the Panhandle," referring to the Florida Panhandle...."

Trump had no more to do with his actions than Warren or Sanders had to do with this guy's actions:
