‘Mental illness and hatred pull the trigger, not the gun’: Trump on El Paso and Dayton shootings
‘Mental illness and hatred pull the trigger, not the gun’: Trump on El Paso and Dayton shootings ‘Mental illness and hatred pull the trigger, not the gun’: Trump on El Paso and Dayton shootingsA wicked man went to a Walmart store where families were shopping with their loved ones. He shot and murdered 20 people and injured 26 others, including precios little children. Then, in the early hours of Sunday morning, Dayton, Ohio, another Twiztid monster, open fire on a crowded downtown Street. He murdered nine people, including his own sister and injured 27 others. The first lady and I joined all Americans in praying and grieving for the victims, their family and the survivors. We will stand by their side forever. We will never forget these barbaric Slaughter’s are an assault Upon Our communities and attack Carnation and a crime against all of your Manatee. We are outraged and sickened by this monstrous evil. The cruelty, the hatred, the malleus, the bloodshed and that are our hearts – are shattered for every family, whose parents, children, husbands and wives were ripped from their arms and their lives. America weeps for the Fallen. We are a loving nation and our children are entitled to grow up at a just, peaceful and loving Society. Together, we lock arms to shoulder the grief. We ask God in heaven too easy I wish of those who suffer and we vowed to act with urgent resolve. I want to thank the many law enforcement Personnel who responded to these atrocities with the extraordinary Grace and courage of American Heroes. I have spoken with Texas, governor Greg Abbott and Ohio Governor Mike dewine, as well as mayor DeMarco of El Paso, Texas and mayor Nan. Whaley of Dayton, Ohio to express our profound sadness and unfailing support. Today, we also send the condolences of our nation 2, president obrador of Mexico and all the people of Mexico for the loss of their citizens in the El Paso shooting terrible, terrible thing. I’Ve also been in close contact with attorney general Barr & FBI, director Wray Federal authorities are on the ground and I have directed them to provide any and all assistance required. Whatever is needed. The shooter in El Paso posted a Manifesto online consumed by racist hate in 1 voice. Our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy. The Sinister ideologies must be defeated, hate has no place in American hatred, warps the mind, ravages the heart and devours the soul. We have asked FBI to identify all further resources. They need to investigate and disrupt 8 crimes and domestic terrorism whatever they need. We must recognize that the internet has provided a dangerous Avenue to radicalize, disturb mines and perform demented X. We must shine light on the dark recesses of the internet and stop mass murders before they start. The internet likewise is used for human trafficking, illegal drug distribution and so many other heinous crimes. The Perils of the internet and social media cannot be ignored and they will not be ignored in the two decades since Columbine, our nation has watched with Rising horror and read as one mass shooting has followed another over and over again decade after decade. We cannot allow ourselves to feel powerless. We can and will stop this evil contagion and that task. We must honor the sake memory of those we have lost by acting as 1 people. Open wounds cannot heal. If we are divided, we must seek real bipartisan solution. We have to do that in a bipod Manor that will truly make America safer and better for all. First, we must do a better job. If identifying and acting on early warning signs, I am directing the DePauw what, if Justice, to work in Partnership, partnership with local state and federal agencies, as well as social media companies, to develop tools that can detect a mass Shooters before they strike. As an example, the monster Parkland High School in Florida had many red flags against him, and yet nobody took decisive action. Nobody did anything. Why not? Second, we must stop the glorification of violence in our society. This includes the gruesome and grizzly video games that are now commonplace. It is to easy today for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence. We must stop or substantially reduce this, and it has to begin immediately. Cultural change is hard, but each of us can choose to build a culture that celebrates the inherent worth and dignity of every human life.. What we have to do 3rd. We must reform our mental health laws to better identify mentally Disturbed individuals who may commit acts of violence and make sure those people not only get treatment, but when necessary, involuntary confinement, mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun 4th. We must make sure that those judged pose a grave risk to Public Safety, do not have access to firearms and that, if they do, those Firearms can be taken through Rapid, due process. That is why I have called for a red flag laws, also known as extreme risk protection orders. Today, I’m also directing the Department of Justice to propose legislation ensuring that Those who commit hate crimes and May murders face the death penalty and that this capital punishment be delivered quickly, decisively and without years of needless delay. These are just a few of the arrow cooperation that we can pursue. I am open and ready to listen and disgust all ideas that will actually work and make a very big difference. Republicans and Democrats have proven, but we can join together in a bipartisan fashion to address this plague. Last year we enacted the stop School violence and fix nics acts into law, providing grants to improve school safety and strengthening critical background checks for firearms purchases. At my direction, the Department of Justice band bump stocks: last year we prosecuted a record number of ROMs offences, but there is so much more that we have to do now is the time to set destructive partisanship aside so destructive and find the courage to answer hatred With unity, devotion and love, our future is in our control. America will rise to the challenge we will always have and we always will win the chip she’s ours and ours alone. It is not up to mentally ill monsters. It is up to us that we are able to pass great legislation. After all of these years. We will ensure that those who are attacked will not have died in vain. May God bless the memory of those who perished in Toledo that may God protect them? May God protect all of those Texas to Ohio, may God bless the victims and their families? May God Bless Amerika? Thank you very much. Thank you. In response to back-to-back mass shootings in the U.S., President Donald Trump says he wants legislation providing “strong background checks” for gun users, but provided no details and has reneged on previous promises to strengthen gun laws after mass shootings.
