Texas shootings: Democratic Party wastes no time complaining about blocked gun-control agenda

The gunsmoke hadn’t even cleared in West Texas, when Democratic Party presidential candidates, lawmakers, political activists and their mainstream propaganda machine began to once again complain about Americans’ easy access to firearms. One of that party’s key issues is the need to “redefine” the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Numerous Democrats put on a moving dramatic performance with their fellow political travelers such as CNN, MSNBC, New York Times and other major news outlets. They reminded their audiences that their blocked gun-control agenda is necessary in order to end the epidemic of shooting sprees. One of the 2020 Democrat presidential candidates tweeted that the current situation with gun-toting killers was “f—ed up.”

In a video of himself that he tweeted, Beto O’Rourke said, “There is no reason we have to accept this as our fortune, as our future.” O’Rourke also said in his video which  he tweeted that also includes him “using profanity about the shooting.”

The audience in Virginia, where O’Rourke is campaigning and the video was filmed, cheered after he cursed and the former Texas congressman also describes his experience at an Arkansas gun show where he claims some people offered their support for his gun control plans.

O’Rourke was one of the first to react, calling the mass shootings an “epidemic.”

The Odessa Police Chief, Michael Gerke, stated that there were seven victims killed about 21 people wounded by gunman. He described the suspected shooter as a white male in his 30s. The suspect was shot and killed at the Cinergy movie theater in Odessa, Gerke said.

“The shooting set off a chaotic afternoon in which police reported that a suspect hijacked a U.S. Postal Service vehicle and began firing at random in the area of Odessa and Midland, hitting multiple people,” said the career lawman.

Police initially reported that there could be more than one shooter, but Gerke says authorities now believe there was one lone shooter who was killed by responding police officers. Meanwhile, the second mass shooting in that state alone brought out another 2020 presidential candidate and former San Antonio mayor Julián Castro who joined MSNBC anchorwoman and Trump-hater Joy Reid saying, “The people of this country have had enough.”
