How many times has Trump incited fear with the 'invasion' of illegals.

Come on - -let's be consistent and let's lose this tribal approach to solving our problems.

There is a gun violence problem in this country.

If the NRA really cared about the legit, law abiding gun owners they would be all about sitting down and addressing the issue. Instead they just SCREAM 2nd Amendment and stomp their feet.

I don't know if there is any more gun legislation that could help reduce but we will never know if we don't have constructive dialogue instead of both sides just yelling at each other.

Hahaha. Consider the source of the ludicrous comment. State govt is run by religious freaks. The out of state transplants cannot come quickly enough. But, we don’t really need more illegals, refugees or even “legal” immigrants.

And on the flip side, we know liberals would deflect and find every excuse in the book for it had it been committed by a minority.

Terrorism is terrorism, time to call it for what it is without the political BS. It's no different if it's committed by a white dude from Ohio or a Muslim from Afghanistan. People die either way.

I saw this on Twitter:

'Seems they quickly forgot that under the Obama administration America saw:
24 mass shootings, 236 dead, 257 injured.'

Was Obama encouraging violence in America?

i may be going out on a limb here, but it seems like possibliy mass shootings happen regardless of who the president is.

More the half of gun violence is committed by black people.

Most black voters vote Democrat.

Beto called it the same. Put it at the feet of the White House.

Trump's inflammatory racist language is not helping. Less than a day prior to the El Paso shooting, Trump re-tweeted Katie Hopkins, a racist demagogue who called immigrants "cockroaches" and "feral humans."

Words matter. Charles Manson never killed anyone; but he used words to incite and inspire his followers to do the killings for him.

So that’s Your excuse?
