I blame America's stupid, so stupid, gun laws. These will continue to happen, don't send thoughts and prays, write letters to the government and change the stupid law.

Of course it's a hate crime. Terrorism, homegrown. Just with an "All-American" face. Get used to it, Americans.

"Hate has no place in our country, and we're going to take care of it," Trump said. "This is also a mental illness problem, if you look at both of these cases. These are really people that are very, very seriously mentally ill."

Good case of self-diagnosis Donnie...

A four-page statement posted on 8chan, an online message board often used by extremists, and believed to have been written by the suspect, called the Walmart attack "a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas."

And who else has used the term "invasion" when talking about immigrants?

*Trump said, adding that "people hate the word 'invasion,' but that's what it is."*

Who failed to shut down someone at his rally when he shouted "Shoot Them" when talking about immigrants?

"Shoot them!" the supporter in the audience shouted. Some in the crowd clapped and cheered. Trump them joked "That's only in the Panhandle you can get away with this stuff,"

Stop deluding yourselves Trumpers - the blood is on Donnie's hands and it won't wash off....

When I posted, only the first two comments had appeared. No matter the contents of the article, posters on this site wake up every morning and see President Trump as the root of everything bad anywhere in the world. Truth is, bad things happen, that's life; unless you want the entire planet to be a safe space...

Vernon: Truth is, bad things happen, that's life

That's true. The problem is that this particular bad thing happens in the USA so very, very often. You've had over 250 mass shootings this year alone. Aren't you twigging something?

How many of those 250 mass shootings have been carried out with legally held weapons? Ban them! Stuff the constitutional right to own a weapon capable of mowing down innocent civilians as if it was a battlefield... America needs to grow up, grow a pair and just ban all firearms unless there are very good reasons to own one... like the rest of the civilised world.

America is not some frontier town surrounded by restless natives... the population don't need to walk around like gunslingers... please, emerge from the shadow of the gun... your country could very well end up as a pariah state, shunned by the rest of the world as some dangerous, self-destructive country with it's toxic love of guns.

One young mother gave her life shielding her two month old son who survived but some broken bones.

Awful, but blaming it on DT is plain silly.

Truth is, bad things happen,

Yeah, but it happens way to often in America. The GOP and Trumpers feel that just doing nothing, or making more guns is the solution. I'm sorry to say, but Americans need to start thinking outside of the box. They need to stop trying to pound a square peg into a round hole. At the very least, they should institute a ban on all semi-automatics. Why do regular citizens need them in the first place?

Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said Mexico would consider litigation that could lead to the extradition of the gunman.

Interesting idea, and likely a real deterent: imagine facing life in a Mexican jail.

A muzzle for the president to wear might work more effectively to reduce the risk of this happening again, or maybe a wad of bubble gum laced with crazy glue.

If nothing was done after 20 1st graders got gunned down in CT years ago, I am not confident anything will be done now. Politicians are COWARDS when it comes to standing up against the NRA and their 2nd amendment gibberish. What part of the 2nd amendment allows for civilians to have automatic/semiautomatic rifles. Rifles whose only intent is to kill. And mental health? Well, Trump cut that funding when he slashed funding to the NIH so I don't see how that can be a solution either. It's heartbreaking and infuriating at the same time.

Of course this is domestic terror seeing as the perpetrator posted a racist manifest online and his rhetoric is clearly inspired by patriot groups such as the Three Percenters.

To give you an idea patriot groups are currently number 3 on Homeland's watchlist concerning biggest threats on American soil just behind lone wolfs and IS.

The entire planet being a safe space would be amazing. No more tapes, murders, abuse, etc. Are you against stopping these things?

Confusion: The Revolutionary Army taking British airfields and having air superiority.

Come in, Black, you're smart enough to know that nothing you throw at Donny's opponents in the "mispeaking" category will ever be met with silence.
