I wonder how many of these thugs grew up in a single parent household? Not saying that's the solution as there are plenty of messed up families but it makes you wonder.

As others said, how is it there were no armed citizens in the Walmart? After all the right of passage is known as a Wally Walk.

What is bad:

Lots of innocents murdered and wounded.

In Texas, in a place any LTC could have carried.

The horribly evil people have figured out semiautomatic rifles are deadly.

They can do this at will, they can be famous.


What has changed:

For liberals and socialists it is a gold mine, Beto’s campaign is reinvigorated.

For elected officials they are ALL reanalyzing their positions on semiautomatic rifles and magazines.

What is good:

Nothing.

What should we do:

Everyone needs to carry.

What should our governments do:

Officers and security need to carry semi or fully automatic rifles, just like in foreign countries.

One of the news stories said that it was back-to-school shopping, so the Wal-Mart was packed with way more folks that usual. I do not believe it coincidental that he chose that Wal-Mart, at a mall, so there would be even more people. The sheer numbers game was against any license-to-carry holder being close enough to him to make a difference.

Other than shooting up the place and needlessly killing a bunch of innocent people; in his manifesto, he has pretty much called a spade a spade and called it as it is. Unfortunately, he forsook martyrdom and surrendered.
So, you agree with and support this ideology???
Nope. He called a spade a spade.

Yes, a spade is a spade, and a hateful, bigoted, murdering racist is a hateful, bigoted, murdering racist.

I tried to tweet a copy of this image about an hour ago, and I was instantly blocked from Twitter for 12 hours, for allegedly violating a rule.

I just skimmed his manifesto and there is a striking similarity to the Nazi's hatred of Jews in WWII and their obsession with purity of race. The primary difference is he hates Hispanics instead of Jews. (apologies if this contrast has already been made, I haven't read every thread post)

What an evil psychopath.

3 Mexican nationals among dead. Mexican government plans to take legal action for failing to protect them.

"failing to protect them" - yeah, we don't get that here either.

I don’t believe the Mexican government really wants to provoke POTUS.

Antifa better rethink coming to El Paso. I don’t think anyone will be in the mood to put up with them.

While we constitute a large number that support and commit to carrying, we are only a group of <4% of the population. So if there were 200 (arbitrary number) in Walmart at the time of shooting, there would have been approximately 8 with an LTC. Given, unfortunately, that all who have an LTC, carry on a consistent basis, there may have been, let’s say 5 that were actually armed and of those 5, 3 who were trained and maybe then 1 who would actually engage the shooter.

So even in Texas the odds favor the evil amongst us. This is why it’s SO important to talk others into our fold and even more for us to CARRY EVERYDAY AND EVERYWHERE.

And another hendrance--given the number of people in the store, and all of them running for thei lives, even if you think you have a clear shot, the odds of harming an innocent is pretty high. A lot of holders might hesitate in fear of hitting a bystander and then needing to invoke their LTC group insurance.

Exactly, first you have to assess whether you can take the person out without harming someone else or getting killed.
