Nobody incited the shooter -- he was a lone-acting kookburger, period. Take a page from your own post and drop the politicization in a time when it's the last thing we need.

Huge difference between these two mass shootings. One targeted a specific demographic while the other did not. El Paso is 80% Hispanic. There were 3000 people inside Walmart at the time of the shooting. It is reasonable to assume most were Hispanic. Shooter spent 10 hours driving to his target and had a lot of time to think about it.

As for Obama....there are hundreds of posts on this forum and no shortage of media that blamed Obama for the gun violence in Chicago throughout his 8 years in office.

Conspiracy theories emerge while bodies are still on the ground.

After every sensational mass shooting, there is a tendency to blame mental illness, prescription meds, bad parenting, single mothers, lack of religion, lack of prayer in schools, SSM, feminists, etc.

In terms of red flags, none would have prevented either of these shooters from legally acquiring a firearm.

in the end it doesnt matter. we had two people motivated by hate go out and do an evil thing. you can try to make the claim that one is wore than the other, but in reality, not really. they both shot up a group of innocent people doing nothing but going about their daily business.



and the REAL racism here is that some are trying to make one shooting racially motivated. gee a guy went into a city heavily populated by hispanics, and people of hispanic descent, el paso being somethig like 48% hispanic, and they killed 22 people of hispanic descent. its like doing the same thing her ein southern arizona, you can throw rocks without hitting people of hispanic descent. in fact I have hispanic blood in me.


one more thing, far too many people, especially those that hate trump blindly, will see racism in everything trump says. why? because they are looking through the fog of hate. if trump says hi to these people, they scream racism, mostly because the advertising agency for the DNC, aka teh left wing media, constantly screams racism at everything trump says.



come on people, lets stop the hate as you all are getting into the realm of complete and total irresponsibility.

Instead of he's wrapping up a trip that he never wanted to make but one that he's more than capable of handling.

Yep, I just saw this. A last minute change was made to the route, he was originally supposed to drive down that main drag in Dayton where all the people were. But his aides had the motorcade rerouted to avoid them.

What a snowflake. Just as I suspected, Trump's fragile ego and couldn't handle it.

He just couldn't resist - has no impulse control. Immature child. The most juvenile 70+ yr old. Bordering on senility.

this has got to comfort the people in both cities, knowing the President wants to help, no more thoughts and prayers as Obama offered, Trump wants to help.
