So what?  It doesn't matter where they are getting the guns the fact is Indiana doesn't have the amount of shootings as and killings as Chicago.  They had a large number of homicides before 2010.

So you don't care that sensible gun regulation reduces gun violence in the states where it is implemented? You don't care that those states measurably decreased number of weapons used in a crime?

Sounds more like the Souther border of the US

Clearly, you need to review your history.

White House dismissed Homeland Security push to focus more on domestic terrorism: report

 

Quote

DHS is surging resources to the [domestic terrorism] issue, but they're behind the curve because of lack of support from the White House," one current senior administration official told CNN.

The report comes after FBI Director Christopher Wray testified before Congress last month that almost as many domestic terror arrests were made as international terror arrests in the first three quarters of the fiscal year, adding that most of those arrests involved white supremacists.

The POTUS isn't going to prioritize domestic terrorism.

Oh, would you look at this.  I guess it’s a matter of if you interpret statistics.

“Trump critics might claim that there were far fewer shootings during Obama’s administration, blaming the rise in attacks on Trump. In fact, Obama’s presidency marked a sharp rise in mass shootings which seemed to pass unnoticed by the mainstream media. “

The entire article is worth a read.

Of course not.

Again, remember what Trump said, following the New Zealand shootings.

He clearly stated that he didn't view attacks by White Nationalists as a problem.

He said, it involved a small number of people.

That directly contradicts what we are seeing with our own eyes, and what the FBI believes.

For Trump to admit White Nationalists are a domestic terrorism threat, he would have to give up his own voters, admit he is part of the problem, and take action.

Since he lacks all ability to engage in any kind of self awareness, none of that will happen.

We are dealing with a man-child.

Nothing more.

But between the shootings and the stock market, this is a horrible week for Trump and McConnell.

Poor Mitch McConnell!

Protests outside his home, nightly, calling him 'heartless.'

And he is whinning about it!

Although I wouldn't stand outside his house with a voodoo doll, I think it is hilarious that he is complaining, when he has stood SILENTLY, as members of Congress have fielded REAL threats against their lives, because of DJT.

Karma certainly isn't being kind to Mitch.

Mitch needs one of those neighbors like Rand Paul to do a public service.

El Paso Suspect's Mother Called Police With Concerns About His AK-Style Rifle, Lawyers Say

The mother of the El Paso shooting suspect called Texas police weeks before the shooting to relay concerns about the semi-automatic rifle her son had acquired, according to reports.

The call, to the City of Allen Police Department, was passed onto a public safety officer who told the mother of Patrick Crusius, 21, that he was legally allowed to own the weapon, attorneys for his family told CNN and ABC News.

She was concerned about her son’s age, maturity and lack of experience and whether he should therefore be allowed to own an “AK” type weapon, CNN reported.

The suspect is accused of killing 22 people and injuring 24 others in a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, close to the border with Mexico. Police believe he uploaded a racist screed online, in which he wrote about a “Hispanic invasion of Texas.”...

Trump speaks with NRA's Wayne LaPierre as he weighs gun reforms

National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre and President Trump have spoken, a senior administration official confirmed to CBS News. The White House has not disclosed what the two spoke about during the phone call.

In the wake of the mass shootings in Ohio and Texas, the president called on Congress to pass legislation on background checks, which the NRA has long opposed and lobbied against. Mr. Trump has not always supported strengthening background check laws, threatening to veto such legislation earlier this year. The president also spoke with West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, who said the two discussed the NRA's concerns about a background check bill, according to a spokesperson for the senator.

Manchin said the president told him he wants to see legislation before September, and the West Virginia senator told Mr. Trump he needs to be outspoken in his support for the background checks bill in order to secure Republican support...
