Deadliest Church Shooting In Texas History

The death toll may rise but it’s already the deadliest shooting at a place of worship in modern U.S. history.  About a month ago, the nation was dealing with the Las Vegas shooting, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.  58 people were killed while more than 500 people were injured.  Will these tragedies ever stop?

The following tweet explains that the president is calling the incident a mental health problem instead of a gun problem.  Donald Trump has made his support of the Second Amendment, the right to bear arms, very clear.

One of President Trump’s criteria for appointing a Supreme Court Judge is the individual’s support of the Second Amendment.  He appointed Neil Gorsuch who has shown that he’s more intolerant of gun regulation than Antonin Scalia.

Trump has kept his promises to law-abiding gun owners but now his back is up against the wall.  Two of the nation’s deadliest shootings have occurred within about a month of each other and innocent children have lost their lives.

Trump has called the nation’s mental health issues a crisis and he’s blaming the shooting on Devin Kelley’s mental illness.  Are these mass shootings occurring because of the nation’s gun laws or is it the nation’s mental health crisis? There’s no right answer because it’s both.
