MOM on the RIGHT: Shooting Tragedy – We Need Solutions Not Twitter Fights
SEE VIDEO PRESENTATION BELOW INTRO ARTICLE
By TLB Media Director: Corine Gatti-Santillo
A mass shooting was carried out in Dayton, Ohio, Aug.4, murdering 10 people. The gunman was killed by police after the first shots were discharged. The day before, a mass shooting occurred at a Walmart store in El Paso, Texas Aug. 3. A lone gunman killed 22 people and wounded 24 others. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is examining the shooting as an act of domestic terrorism and hate crime.
I won’t politicize this tragedy. That’s disgusting to me and those burying their loved ones.
But here are the talking heads — unbelievably ignorant.
Democrat BetoO’Rourke criticized President Donald Trump’s rhetoric against immigrants for the shootings. “We need to heal,” O’Rourke tweeted. “He has no place here.”
One politician in Texas was instructed by victims to not let Trump’s visit take place. Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-Texas), shared those feelings.
“The White House invited me to join@realDonaldTrump during his visit to El Paso. My response was clear. I requested a phone call with him today in order to share what I have now heard from many constituents, including some who are victims of Saturday’s attack. I was told that @realDonaldTrumpis “too busy” to have that conversation. I declined the invitation because I refuse to be an accessory to his visit. I refuse to join without a dialogue about the pain his racist and hateful words & actions have caused our community and country.”
While these two and others are fighting, the country is reeling from the blood spilled.
Taking people’s guns away won’t circumvent the problem. People can buy guns on the black market. If you attempt to take arms away from America citizens — it’s an infringement of their rights. If a shooter came into my neighborhood and there was a firearm? Dang sure MOTR would protect the family and the innocent.
Scary to think that we’ll never know when someone is going to flip out and kill people — and honestly, we’re not safe anywhere.
There are always sick deranged people.
Let’s not make this a war of the words today or about ideologies.
Make it about the victims.
People are hurting in the aftermath and our country is crying with them.

We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent.
