  1. It was heartbreaking to watch these reporters gutwrenching responses to this HORRIFIC terrorist attack. Trump is responsible. full stop! Due to his hateful and racist rhetoric which started on his first day in the White House and that has been ramping up even more in the past few weeks! It's NOT the Hispanic population or the immigrants that are causing harm. It's the so called president of the United States who's causing harm AND his HATEFUL base of white supremacists! My heart is broken for all the victims and their families, but thats not going to bring them back or fix the problem! The "problem" needs to be VOTED OUT OF OFFICE in 2020 and the Mitch McConnell and his racist Senate need to COME BACK from their "recess" and start doing something about the guns in this country! This is a National Security issue! In case they haven't noticed an ALL OUT racial war has started! 3 mass killings in the one WEEK, 2 of them within 13 hours of each other! 280 killings in the past 8 MONTHS alone, with 1000's more injured! This is not America anymore, it's a WAR ZONE!!

  2. So, do we need to do our shopping online? I mean seriously. Do we need to look over our shoulder every time we leave our house. Are our kids safe on playgrounds and school? This is NOT right!
    S T O P! Human on Human Violence

  3. Right wing terrorists in America are doing exactly what ISIS wants. Osama Bin Laden couldnt be more pleased.

  4. You shouldn't have to call a mass shooting a hate crime or have federal gun charges attached in order for it to carry the death penalty in any state. Regardless of the motivation that man deserves the death penalty. I hate it when motivation is a deciding factor for how someone is held accountable to the law. I believe it to be an insult to the families and those who lost their lives. I'm not saying the reason is not important or should not be dealt with. But judging heinous crimes based on motivation is ridiculous.

  5. trump is responsible and the problem no president should talk like that get that illegitimate 🐷out of office and in jail

  6. BREAKING: Dayton Mass Shooter Was Registered Democrat, Voted In 2 Dem Primaries https://bigleaguepolitics.com/breaking-ohio-mass-shooter-is-registered-democrat-voted-in-2-dem-primaries/ via @BigLeaguePol

  7. Trump just like his base are morons. They are the result of moronism. The offsprings of idiocy and science illiteracy. Nothing that they say will fix anything. They are blockades, that sprout from accumulation of heavy negative tendencies (hatred, authoritarianism, supremacy). They long for fascism, dictatorship and rule of power. Under hordes of morons inspired by few snake-oil lying brutes.

  8. Crazy we know it's Domestic terrorism but trump claims it is mental health……..wonder if it would have been mental health if the shooter was brown?

  9. Condolences to the families and victims of this senseless assault.
    If assault weapons are easily available … what do you think those weapons are going to be used for? It’s not rocket science. Why live in fear just to support the arms industry?
    🌲🌝☘️

  10. U ppl didn't think things got out of control when kids getting shot inside their own school but this is a problem? Your whole society has a denial problem and your country is on the verge of civil war and international war. once where the leading country in the world and now your a laughing disgrace of humanity.trump is the new Hitler.

  11. Thanks racist Washington for your leadership in dictating the world and America!!! Trump is doing great in office👍🏼 thanks for raping natives and Mexicans for their land and use your idiotic believes to demonize them!!! But remember Washington what ever goes up must come down!!!!

  12. Machine gun Mitch and Trator trump are responsible along with all the republicans that wont work to make America safe from the white Nazis, and Putin.

  13. Why are you not telling your audience the Dayton shooter was an ANTIFA member, satanist, and SOCIALIST fan of Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and AOC!?!? Tell the truth!!

  14. in germany private persons dont have access to guns. people need a gun license and have to pass a psychic test and a defined reason to own them as for foresters, security personnel, licensed collectors or members of a shooting club. therefore they are bound by law to keep their guns at home in a safety locker and an equivalent in their car as well while they move around. last massacre we had was in 2008 because a parent didnt lock his gun away. he was also prosecuted afterwards. ofc we have a crime scene here but usually these sukkers use knifes only. the deadliest weapon which is free to have would be crossbows.
    i think the 2nd amendment is a joke because its from 1791 when america still was a wild country with hostile indian tribes within and settlers needed guns for their protection. but america is a civilized country for 120 years so this law became useless. the real reason people keep on this law from yesteryear is money. its big business and your politicians are paid actors by the nra.

  15. Money is God in the USA, specially with the NRA behind, giving money as "Donor" for congressmen. Getting weapons are easy as never before, even assault rifles who suppose to be only for the military. The only thing the GOP and the "president" do is given their "toughs and prayers" to the families of the victims. Is time to do do something about.

  16. Racist psychos!!! These psychos need to get off the internet and get a job. Do something positive with your life. People that spread hate and dislike people of other race or nationalities are LOSERS!!!!

  17. Mass shootings again with white supremacists. If Americans were armed and trained, like the Swiss, this would not happen. Trump, what say you?

  18. The shooting in El Paso is interesting because Texas allows people to openly carry guns everywhere.So logically,there should have been numerous people shopping in Walmart that were carrying guns.Yet no one seems to have done anything to stop this shooter.Where were all these brave cowboys carrying their guns?Were they all hiding behind the the tomatoes and broccoli cowering in fear.What's the point of having a gun if you're not going to use it to defend yourself and others.

  19. Okay the medical ad's are getting old! It has nothing to do with this NEWS Story. My heart is with the victims from all these mass shootings.

  20. For everything being attributed to Trump in the aftermath of this 2 recent psychotic sprees I would like to know what Obama said that is attributed to the Pulse Nightclub and Newtown attacks.

  21. It’s weird how cops take you alive when they know you’re armed! (WHITES) But shoot you dead cuz they think you are! (BLACKS)

  22. I am Mexican, but it makes me laugh when gringos say ´white countries´, when Mexico is 50% of european origin and Mexico was built by white Spanish europeans. and thats why I am whiter than jewish Patrick Causius, I look whiter and a lot of mexicans look whiter than him. Texas and all the southwest was stolen and invaded by anglo/irish scum, we invited them to settle in mexican texas, they disobeyed our laws and outnumeber mexicans in a year because they invaded us first.

    In the 1820s, some people from the Northern and Eastern United States entered Mexico illegally. Mexico did have legal immigration through empresario contacts. The reason for this was to create a buffer between Mexico and the growing United States. At first they tried to convince Mexicans to move into Texas. However, Texas was dominated by the warlike Comanche Native Americans. Mexican families did not want to move to Texas and risk their families lives. Mexico then offered cheap land to Anglos from the United States. These legal immigrants had to agree to live under the Mexican Constitution of 1824. Mexican Texas was bordered by the U.S. frontier areas of Louisiana and Arkansas, had the most settlement by American illegal immigrants. When Mexico realized that illegal immigration was out of control they attempted to shut it down. Mexican Texas had a population of 3,000 illegal immigrants by 1823; most of those immigrants were from the Southern United States or Appalachia. By 1825, Mexico and the Coahuila y Tejas territory legalized immigration under the condition that settlers convert to Roman Catholicism and not own slaves. However, as the settler population expanded to 7,000 and did not assimilate with Mexican culture, Mexico banned American immigration again in 1830. However, by 1835, American immigration increased to 1,000 per month. Santa Anna did away with the Mexican Constitution of 1824. Many violations under his dictatorship led to tensions and eventually the outbreak of a revolution. Texas became independent from Mexico in 1836.[5]

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illegal_immigration_to_Mexico#Mexican_Texas

    Anglos created the state of Israel, enough said. Anglos killed Germans for their jewish masters, enogh said. the multiculturalism is thanks to jewish americans, not us mexicans.

  23. Dear Gun Owners:   Your entire argument for owning a gun is self defense.  Here was your chance.  The probability is over 50% that another gun owner was in the building.  WHY DIDN'T HE / SHE SHOOT BACK?

  24. The trumpsoldier at Walmart killed a US ARMY veteran. Explain that nationalists? I thought traitor trump was pro vets!

  25. So sorry for all the victims and anyone affected. But plz ppl, dnt chew me out, hear me. This was a False Flag. Look at the pic of him walking into Walmart and the video footage of him being arrested, different caki pants on. Witnesses report 3 to 4 shooters, in all black wearing mask. Coincidence a Sandy Hook family in town while this all went down? Look at the arrest footage, Im black from the hood & I get more roughed up over no insurance. It's like he was arrested for jaywalking the way they handled him…..C'mon, he jst killed 20+ and only 1 officer is escorting him from his vehicle. Plus QAnon said a day b4 shooting "24hr warning." Plus mainstream media ran bunch of articles saying Antifa planning event in, u guessed it, EL Paso to shed light on border issues days b4 this. C'mon ppl. Don't fall for it AGAIN. Sick powers at work here.

  26. Ever since October 2 years ago I hear everyone talking about controlling guns and blah blah blah but that doesn't do ANYTHING! Please guys, at the very least carry a hand gun with you for the safety of your family and anyone else around. I'd gladly take a dad open-carrying who makes me feel a little uncomfortable when he's shopping besides me than a complete lunatic who's out for blood. I hope we do something definitive about gun control laws but until we do, Please please please think about a hand gun. My thoughts and prayers go out to all these families of the innocents.

  27. the shooter the shooting is a terrible thing but it doesn't change the fact that we have a problem with illegal immigration and it doesn't change the fact but we need to secure our borders and it doesn't change the fact that we are being invaded

  28. Mass shootings are how ordinary people really feel…and these gunmen are the ones who act out on those impulses.

  29. The new mantra for the USA, where pracically everybody owns a gun is; "Make America F*cking and Fighting Again." (MAFFA)

  30. Only a week ago,I wrote comments saying "Trump was seeking to empower his support base-disenchanted and disfranchised whites using racism.
    A race war was becoming a distinct possibility."
    Sadly, I was right.
    Guns + hatred = death of innocents.

  31. El Paso is a nice city. This is shocking. I place the blame not just on the shooter, but the top man leading hate mongering in America, Donald Trump. Not once has he tried to tell people at his disgusting Rallies to curb their hate. He offers to pay attorney bills and asks "Where are my bikers?". He isn't talking about bicycles. I unfortunatelatly see more hate crimes as 2020 elections grow closer.
    You can try to blame Democrats, but they want less weapons on the streets. You are allowed 3 shells to hunt. If you need more than 6 shells your in the wrong place or in need of professional help.

  32. White privilege 🖕. When a terrorist murderer is white, they get to live and gets a trial. Yet, black people who had done nothing gets murdered by cops on the spot.

    Sorry for the victims and family members of the victims in El Paso TX, Dayton OH, Gilroy CA, and everywhere.

  33. Psyop it's always, CNN, NBC, MSNBC<Inside Edition….can't you fools see? Open your eyes, wow! Am I one of the last smart people?

  34. Wonderful!
    Americans should hv more guns! Only until more (politicians) get shot, mass shootings will continue.
    Sadly for the innocent.
    No guns = no shooting. Too difficult to comprehend?

  35. An all Hispanic news cast. Never seen that before. Is that what Texas is like? I have never seen that before it's normally all white people or one black, or Asian person with all white people. Wow… All Mexican, ain't that something.

  36. On world news it's was just another day in American news. Until America does something about the racist leader it has, and the gun laws nothing will change. Same news different places. It's sad but if you are going to anything about it then it will happen. No longer news.

  37. There is a common denominator even when looking at the mass shootings that the left don't mention cause it does not fit their narrative (fishy stuff around some of these shootings too) The common denominator is Psychotropic drugs and fatherless homes and this applies to more than shootings but suicides, teen pregnancy, homelessness and substance abuse.

  38. Trump:Hate has no place in our country (2019)

    Also Trump:
    "I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters," ( 2016)

    Still Trump:
    When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” (2016)

  39. pressure creates pressure
    you americans are all historical invaders to a land of natives, tribes, nations
    we germans are killed by muslims more and more (merkel), we real germans are in high danger
    so we become the red indians of europe
    india / pakistan , India /kashmir conflict………….the invaders (muslims) there are the cause of conflicts to an old hindu culture
    there is no escape from conflicts

  40. You don't need Al Qaeda and ISIS to start a terror campaign in the US. You have a bunch of crazies doing a very good job already. Islamic extremists must be jumping with glee. Well done America.

  41. Want to protect yourself from a gun weilding redhat Trump supporter? You have two choices, arm yourself and prepare to defend your own safety, or lock yourself away in your home and let Amazon bring you everything you need.

  42. Democrats media pretending to care about Americans is cute, don’t be fooled they’re just using dead Americans to push narratives.
    Beto is having a hay day politicizing these tragedies, it’s sickening.
    Dems shouldn’t be allowed near these suffering families and victims.

  43. I can’t believe that people care more about owning a gun, than they do about people not dying. It’s insane. I like shooting at ranges for recreation. I would give up the ability to do so in a heartbeat for the safety of my fellow citizens.

  44. They made sure to have a Mexican anchor for this. Oh no it looks like she's about to cry. pathetic!

  45. Maybe Walmart should stop selling guns? (Now that people go into their stores and slaughter humans with the types of weapons they sell.)

  46. Trump was trying to make antifa a terrorist organization. What about white nationalist organizations? I am not for any of them because it is the so called leaders that are to lead the country to a better future. But trump is trying to take us back to the past -scary because now everyone has a gun and my interest will be to protect my family at all cost!

  47. 用佩洛西的话来说就是:枪击案是美国的一道美丽的风景线

    The shooting in the United States is a beautiful scene

  48. This was powerful to watch. I can feel Phillip Mena's sadness, his anger, his pain. He passionately spoke on behalf of his people on a personal level and I applaud him. My girlfriend was born and raised in El Paso and I'm from San Antonio. She recently took me back to her home city to visit her family. She showed me the El Paso culture the incredible views at Scenic Drive the good food all the things that make El Paso a unique City. The coward shooter would have been welcomed by the people of this great City the same way I felt welcomed. What happened to this beautiful city is just unbelievably tragic. My heart will forever be with the people of the Sun City.

  49. Every time you look at your semi-automatic rifle, you should see the bloody dead body of that precious little girl who was murdered. Murdered with a gun like yours.

    That’s all I want to say.

  50. Would you idiots just you know stop using those “code words”?. “Assault-rifle, high capacity magazines”?
