   What was interesting is the far-right attempting to make a political message away from guns and before anyone (not living on 8Chan) knew about the ElPaso massacre.     The daily caller had one of the first political statements and the Lt. Gov of Texas repeated that sentiment.  

 

    So don't anyone try and sell the lie about the mentality of the shooter and the RW / 8Chan ideology that is attempting to send a mis-direction statement.

We, American Citizens, must DEMAND GUN CONTROL NOW!

We need to get rid of ALL assault weapons as they were intended for war and the battlefield and NOT for the private use of mentally deranged murderers who have a penchant for killing our fellow American people!

El Paso Walmart rampage marks 250th mass shooting in 215 days

 

 

The gunfire that tore through a Walmart jammed with back-to-school shoppers on Saturday marked another bleak milestone in a nation pocked by gun violence: the 250th mass shooting of 2019. 

 

And the rampage in El Paso, which left 20 dead and 26 injured, notched an even darker statistic: It occurred on the 215th day of the year, meaning there have been more mass shootings than days so far this year. 

 

The massacre at the Walmart near the Cielo Vista Mall became the nation's latest mass shooting as defined by the Gun Violence Archive, a not-for-profit organization that provides online public access to information about gun-related violence.

 

The archive categorizes mass shootings as incidents in which four or more people were shot or killed, not including the shooters. So far this year, 522 people have died in mass shootings and 2,040 have been injured, according to the data.

 

The incident also came in a particularly painful week: Two people were shot and killedat a Walmart store in Southaven, Mississippi, south of Memphis on Tuesday, and three people were killed by gunfire Sunday at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in northern California.

 

And it follows two other high-profile shootings earlier this year.

 

A longtime city worker opened fire in a building that houses Virginia Beach government offices on May 31, killing 12 before he was gunned down by police.

 

On Feb. 15, an employee at a manufacturing plant in Aurora, Illinois, opened fire during a disciplinary meeting where he was dismissed. He wounded one other employee and five of the first police officers to arrive at the suburban Chicago plant before he was killed during a shootout with police.
