Another day and another school shooting massacre. 10 dead. They never learn over there. Trump tweeting his thoughts and prayers while bowing to the NRA ::).

Sad to hear. That country and their gun laws are completely munted.

However, hard to single out the Trumpster on this issue. All of their pollies are too scared to go against the NRA. Will take a brave president to go against those crones

Sadly so common in the States now you're not shocked when the latest one happens and not surprised when nothing changes to American gun laws to try and prevent them.

Another day of mass shootings in America.

First one in a shopping centre in El Paso, Texas. 20 dead and 26 wounded. A Hate crime too from a white supremacist if the document posted on the net belongs to the shooter.

The second in Dayton, Ohio. Reports of up to another 7-to-10 dead.

Of course, nothing will be done about their soft gun laws once again. So these massacres in the States will just keep on occurring. Only more do nothing offerings of "prayers"  ::).

So Trump explained it as both events can be blamed on mental illness! Wow! Show me one mass murderer who didn’t have a mental illness!

Just excuses to keep the NRA out of the picture..... :banghead
OER. Calling it as it is since 2004.
