      @Matthew Keenan HUH??? 🤔 Matthew you are making no sense. Better to remain silent and be thought of as a fool than to comment and remove all doubt.

    • NATIVE LATINOS Fook TRUMP you spelled white people wrong, the ones that aren’t racist do nothing to stop the ones that are so they are also responsible

    • NATIVE LATINOS Fook TRUMP | September 1, 2019 at 9:56 AM | Reply

      A.D. T Sr. We can’t do anything because of Republicans and the NRA how are we responsible you trash

    Where were the “good people with guns” who were supposed to prevent this from happening?

    • Rueben Aragon | August 31, 2019 at 8:00 PM | Reply

      @all the people trying to say cops had guns and were there or there weren’t guns allowed. First off if there’s no guns allowed there is that gonna stop a crazed shooter? ” oh no guns allowed here, I can’t go in” and of course cops were there they are gonna respond. My point is the answer isn’t ” give everyone guns, they’ll stop the shooter before it gets worse.” We need stricter gun laws. And no, I’m not saying take away all the guns– im saying take away weapons of war, unnecessary to “our freedom”. There is absolutely no reason for an American citizen to be carrying around an assault rifle, or a pistol with extended magazines (especially with our militarized police force).

      Rueben Aragon you can’t prevent this from happening until they implement psych evaluations for all gun owners and close the inheritance loophole and probate firearms for heirs until they pass a psych eval and a background check.

      Rueben Aragon says you. But the 2nd amendment’s purpose is to protect us from the tyranny of our own government. I’m for stricter gun laws but not ones that make our guns less scary to our own government. After they take our guns they are free to take anything else they like. That mostly applies to democrats because they are the ones that like to take our stuff.

    I will pray for the victims and the police officers to get well

      It is Christian SUPREMACY that is killing it’s own in America, just as the Islamists do to their own.
      We are experiencing the DEATH THROES of RELIGIOUS DELUSIONS in the twenty first century.
      Society can no longer support rule by secret messages from Invisible Magical Beings to the SELF-PROCLAIMED chosen few.
      As it opens the door for every con-artist, power seeker, and paedophile ON THE PLANET.

      There is not ONE MOLECULE of verifiable evidence for ANYTHING Supernatural, Ghost, God or Gargoyle.
      Supporting things WITHOUT VERIFIABLE EVIDENCE, leads to an ADDICTION to self-bullshitting, detatchment from VERIFIABLE REALITY, and a plunge into self-serving corruption of individual and society.
      Self-bullshitting due to INDUCED TERROR of invisible magical beings is KILLING OUR SOCIETIES.

      Be well and brave, my fellow traveller.

  4. So basically 3-4 weeks later after El Paso and Dayton, another shooting. Let’s see what happens with new gun rules. Probably nothing! Just like 3 weeks ago…. nothing!
    Sh*t Texas just made it easier for someone to get a gun.
    Nice work…

    • Steven Lindsey : Trump HAS, “denigrated legal immigration,” by constantly referring to LEGAL immigrants as, “illegals.” The DEFINITION of Denigration, RIGHT THERE. And, YOU do the same thing, because Trump tells you WHAT to, “think.”

    • @NewhamMatt
      Yes sir!
      Nothing unfortunately is going to happen. Shootings 3 weeks ago and another this weekend and 5 dead. McConnell, Trump, and the Republicans basically don’t want to tick off the most powerful lobby on Capitol Hill….the NRA! That’s it…bottom line.

    • @Ash Roskell
      You are correct as well!
      It’s become very apparent that Trump’s spewing of hatred is coming home to roost. The President of the United States of America should never say some of the things he says! I’ve never seen it before in my life. But, Trump has ‘normalized’ ill behavior. He just a sack of sh*t…..like I knew he would be from day one of his Inauguration.

      STARTING TODAY, PROBLEM SOLVED. ‘Cause, you know, “good guy with a gun etc”…

  5. arrest maga hats immidiatley and trump as well.

  6. But thank god this mass shooters right to carry a gun was not infringed.

  7. Steve Rousseau | August 31, 2019 at 7:47 PM | Reply

    Prayers ain’t enough Ban Assault rifles. These guns were made for War. WTF

  8. im sure its another trump cultist as the shooter, guess we wont get legislation this is gop approved.

  9. Trump will be coming for your video games.

      @Scientific Methodology Have you done those qualifications? I have… they’re a joke. Shooting paper at a range isn’t going to make me a good gunfighter. Neither is answering questions like “Do you feel like hurting yourself?” with the only possible answer you know they need to hear in order to pass you. My significant other is a highschool teacher… she already has a mountain of nonsense she has to fill out and keep current just to be allowed to do her job. We don’t need more hoops for teachers to jump through… we need to have their back as a society so that school shootings become as absurd and unthinkable as they once were.

    • Scientific Methodology | September 1, 2019 at 12:25 AM | Reply

      mistercohaagen it’s not a another hoop if she isn’t going to carry. My opinion is that a polygraph should accompany the psych evaluation. Also, if teachers are going to be marshalls they should be doing tactical shooting courses as well. I went to the range with a law enforcement buddy this morning who has his quarterly qualification coming up. He lives in NJ and I live in PA so I provide training to him with firearms since I live in a free state and have more experience and knowledge plus I am a collector and I have all manner of firearm types.

    • @Scientific Methodology I have a question for you from a Canadian gun collector to an American one. What are your thoughts and feelings on licensing for gun ownership?

    • Scientific Methodology | September 1, 2019 at 11:21 AM | Reply

      Alex .Wallace I think that licensing ownership is redundancy after background checks are completed. I do however think that background checks can be more stringent My problem otherwise with ownership licensing is that it would basically be a tax whereby government would be conducting commerce in another business which I am absolutely against.
      Quid pro quo, what firearms or peripheral items aren’t you allowed to own in Canada and are firearms laws in Canada universal or more locally administered? Also, how do you feel about ownership licenses? Are you required to be licensed?
      As a (CCW) concealed carry permit holder in my state I am able to carry in 33 states total through reciprocity laws.

    Once again, “Great people on both sides” eh.

  11. Fox News has their comments disabled of this tragedy.

  12. *Meanwhile the Sick Orange creature 🐙 and his possies like Moscow Mitch are having the kool-aid and Trump talking about suing his hand-picked cabinet members come 2020 we need to clean the sewer system*

  13. It’s not terror if it’s white. White Evangelicals are outpacing ISIS murder of innocent Americans by like 1000 to 1.

    • Dylan Roof came pretty d*mn close to *doing just that* in a church in Charleston, SC, Brian… 🤨

    • @CynAnne1 the black man who shot up a white church in Tennessee wasn’t a Christian and neither was Dylan roof

    • The “Chosen One” keeps inciting violence at his KKK rallies aimed at non-whites non-stop.

    • @Marco Molito we can only talk about white shooters though. These people have manipulation and mind control slapping them in the face and they love it. So sad the weak ego fed minds

  14. Blood on NRA’s hands !

  15. An epidemic of shootings in the United States and Republicans still stand up for the NRA.

  16. From an Aussie observer, I just want to say, “Screw you, Moscow Mitch. Your obstructionist agenda isn’t just limiting American democracy. It’s getting people killed.”

    Thank goodness the Texas legislature made brass knuckles legal again. (I’m not kidding.)

  18. Gun regulations be damned. We don’t need them. We doin just fine. Oh wait this happened. Again and again and again. Time for this to stop.

  19. TheWestern Millenial | August 31, 2019 at 8:54 PM | Reply

    Please remember when voting
    REPUBLICANS want no new gun laws & want to keep things the same !!!

  20. Time to move to Odessa in Ukraine. It’s safer and a nicer place anyway.
