@WSJ Just as he'd done after the El Paso shooting, Gov. Greg Abbott flew to West Texas and offered words of sympathy and promises to take action.

"We know that words alone are inadequate. Words must be met with action." bit.ly/2zN6YAB
@WSJ "I have been to too many of these events. I am heartbroken by the crying of the people of the state of Texas. I am tired of the dying of the people of the state of Texas. Too many Texans are in mourning." — @GregAbbott_TX bit.ly/2zN6YAB

1/Gun violence occurs in all 50 states regularly (suicides, murder, accidental discharge etc). Mass murder by assault weapons escalated when the 1994 ban expired in 2004. A 2019 study shows mass shooting fatalities were 70% less likely when that ban was in place. #MassacreMitch
2/ What the Dem Controlled House has done?
The House passed 2 gun control bills: Bipartisan Background
📌Checks Act of 2019 (H.R. 8)
📌Enhanced Background Checks Act (H.R. 112)
#texasshooting
3/ What has the @HouseGOP and @SenateGOP done on gun control? Zilch, Nada, Squat. As y'all know Mitch McConnell has refused to bring either bill to the floor. One bill is supported by 90% of Americans. Even if it goes to the floor the @SenateGOP might not pass it. #MoscowMitch

QUICK THREAD:

I've been waiting to post this thought, because I didn't want to...

Well, I didn't want to look like an ass if I'm wrong. But I'm going to risk it.

Sounds like this person was wanted by the police prior to the start of this tragedy.

That may seem obvious, BUT...
...If that turns out to be the case, it's an important distinction to make.

Why?

Because if true, nothing would have prevented this.
I knew a guy in Havasu named Joker.

He was stopped for a routine traffic violation.

He knew as soon as they ran his ID, he was going to be hooked up and would spend the rest of his life in jail.

After making a couple of phone calls from his car, he shot and killed himself.

Predicable as rain. #texasshooting just as IG report comes out on Comey. Parkland occurred 2 days after the noose was closing on Brennan’s lies to Congress. Also now the 2020 presidential election season and time to activate another deep state patsy to call for gun confiscation.
LOTS of Americans are going to die in the next 14 months at the hand of those who seek perpetual power and seek to disarm Americans, bankrupt and destroy America and enslave us. I’m saddened to say it but it’s our reality.
On Feb 12, 2018 It was widely believed Brennan was Nunes’s next target, someone had turned on Brennan.Headlines like the one below saturated the media. Everyone seemed to understand Brennan was going down. 2 days later a strange thing happened and everyone forgot about Brennan:

Mass shootings on innocent people are violent attacks against ALL of HUMANITY. The root of all of it is lack of value and respect for human life. We live in a society where Governors, legislators and Presidential hopefuls promote, advocate, & literally fight
to terminate valuable human beings in the womb anytime, on demand for any reason. These depraved legislators have devalued, and dehumanized viable human beings- and repeatedly tout it as “freedom to choose.” Lawmakers themselves have deemed others’ lives as expendable and
Unimportant. In addition to legislating murder anytime on demand of viable babies-Law makers have removed God given identity as male and female from schools, workforces, and society as a whole. It’s insanity. The highest seats of power- Lawmakers, Governors- have fought for and

Neuer Massenmord in einem Walmart in El Paso, Texas. Meldungen über 20+ Tote. 8chan läuft heiß mit "/ourguy/"-Feiern und "meme manifestos aren't funny anymore"-Beschwerden. White-Supremacy-Terror läuft dort inzwischen auch unter "shitposting in real life". #texasshooting
Benchmark für solche "real life effort posts" sind der #Christchurch-Terrorist und #Breivik. Kritik in der Community betrifft nicht das Töten, sondern v.a. Aspekte des Entertainments: Stil, Originalität, Authentizität.
So wie in einem Actionfilm oder einem Shooter nicht der Gehalt Gegenstand von Kritik ist, sondern die Formen seiner Vermittlung. Die Etablierung von Terror als Unterhaltungsform der Community erleichtert es Einzelnen, zur Tat zu schreiten: man kann sich auf Details konzentrieren.

Mass shooting in Chicago, Douglas Park
davidharrisjr.com/steven/mass-sh…

When a mass shooting happens in Chicago the media ignores it, happens all the time but it can't be sensationalized, so it's ignored
