As of today, 26 people have lost their lives, another 20 injured after Sunday’s mass shooting in a Texas Church.
Huffington Post reports that around half of the people who were killed in Sunday’s Church shooting were minors. The victims were as young as 18 months old to 77-years-old. Half the Church’s congregation were murdered.
The shooting that has affected a small community near San Antonio is being marked as one of Texas worst mass shootings to date.
President Donald Trump has commented on the shooting while in the middle of his Asian Pacific tour. The president states that this shooting “is not a guns issue” and is more about the “state of mental health in America”
Trump recently got rid of former President Barack Obama’s bill that makes it harder for people with mental illnesses to be able to purchase a gun.
Talk about hypocrisy.
