I disagree....this was a major attack upon a protected group (Hispanics). Immigration has been a hot issue, this is a direct attack upon a leftist darling cause (immigrant rights). The left will react swiftly with rage. Gun control cries will be secondary to the issue of immigration and so called white nationalism. Trump will be the focus of the rage. This shooting is different, itís political at its core. Political violence is becoming common in America on both sides. Riots, race disturbances, post election riots, demonstrations, politically motivated shootings etc all have happened in the past 5 or 6 years. We are on a dark path......it leads to civil war. We walked the same path as a nation in the 1850s and we found that destination. Iím afraid we will reach the same destination in the 2020s as we did in the 1860s if we donít pull back. We will see how the leftists react to this violent attack that was really directed at them. Will they counter with violent demonstrations? The next few days will tell.


No we should not accept the shootings as the new normal. I will not accept however that freedoms must be surrendered because of this violent trend. We must double down on violent criminals, terrorists and remove the mentally ill from our streets.

We already know what the status quo brings.

Of course, we're also the county that doesn't really care much when this happens to twenty small kids in a classroom, or fifty people at a music concert, so what's another 20 dead people and devastated families in El Paso? We've chosen to embrace this as our way of life. I am under no illusions that this will change anything.
I agree, nothing is going to change. If those babies at Sandy Hook couldn't move anyone to act, then nothing will change with this one either.

Nothing will be, we are basically a 3rd world country that I used to hear about in the 80ís. All anyone can do is hope they arenít in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Once Sandy Hook happened and it became bearable for Americans that little children in a school could be murdered, that ended the gun control debate.

Now had a Muslim done that from a terrorist organization, we would be at war with that country, since itís a homegrown white kid, ohh well, move on to the next one.

Boohoo... "White, heterosexual men are the most persecuted group in history"

Boohoo... "Christians are being persecuted in this country for not being able to follow their beliefs"

Boohoo... "Liberals hate Trump because he is a white 'Christian'"


Sounds like Identity Politics to me!

El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen said the shooting ďhas a nexus to a hate crime.Ē

Officials said Crusius surrendered at the scene to approaching officers.

Authorities believe the 21-year-old posted a manifesto on the online forum 8chan, which listed ďthe Hispanic invasion of TexasĒ as one of the motivations for the attack.

Guessing he didn't vote for Hillary last presidential election....

And sadly again for the right, not a female/illegal/Muslim committing these atrocities

Quick. Whatís liberal and has an IQ of 100?

Nothing!
It was a white, extreme right wing, nationalist who did this.

White.

Right wing.

Male.

Terrorist. Again. Why is it always the white, rightwing, terrorists who do this?
