And this is the result of his hate speech:

Unbelievable. Another far right terrorism attack.

It's time for people on both sides of the political divide to speak up against violent white supremacy which has been expanding in the past few years.

Other wise there will likely be more domestic terrorism attacks in America.

They all said that their gun was for their personal protection, and they had no intention of using it to take on a mass shooter, or get between the shooter and arriving LEOs.

I've tested the USP, .45, out to 100 yards on the silhouette, rapid shooting on one magazine in the car coming to get me scenario.


Now, do I think it would be that easy? Of course not but if I were to pick a pistol to engage a target at 100 yards, that's it..............


..........the catch is, the USP is a full size battle pistol and unless you are wearing a field jacket, it's a bit tough to conceal.

Did you blame him for them as well ?
I think Obama missed the opportunity to take as stand on it, and do something more meaningful than offer thoughts and prayers. He tried, but not very hard.

Get help. Your political anger has gotten to a level where you're completely irrational in your thinking.

No, its not Trumps fault but probably the hate filled MSM and their rhetoric/hate towards Trump bears some blame.


I wouldnt be surprised is some libs are happy about this because now the narrative for the next week or 2 will be about gun control.....its as if they set up these things, they need something new to whine about since Mueller time actually lowered the number of people looking for impeachment.

And guess what, Democrats and liberals are just as capable of racial hatred.

That's my point.

He is possibly (if that picture was genuine) trying to get people mad at trump to create more hatred and division when he himself isn't a trump supporter.

The Christchurch guy did the same thing. Read his manifesto.

LOL so predictable. It's Trump's fault. Forget that these shootings started long before Trump even talked about running for office.

NO it is not Trump's fault. It is the individual's fault.

Trumps an idiot, but he doesn't own this and by the way our Prisons have many many individuals from south of the border, many of whom for rape, murder, drugs and gang violence.

Ask Moscow Mitch why he won't advance the gun bill the House passed a month or so back, and get back to us, would you...?

Realistically I expect us to follow Australia's lead. They solved their mass shooting and mental illness problems all in one fell swoop in 1996.

From what I've read, the shooter's manifesto indicated that his personal quest was to combat the Hispanic "invasion" at the border. Sound familiar? How much you want to bet he's an avid Trump supporter?

Trump's vitriol is taking a toll on our society. People who otherwise would keep these feelings to themselves now think they have license to maim and kill at will because their hero, Trump, says it's okay. At least that's how these unstable people see it. I fear we are going to see more of this stuff as we near the election and Trump intensifies his rhetoric. This is the mentality of his base and he knows it. He plays them like a fiddle.

But, hey, there's good people on both sides. Remember?
