Um… Donald, you spelt “terrorism” wrong! Your country had 2 terrorist attacks back to back, hours apart leaving almost 30 innocent people dead. This, just days after yet another terrorist attack in California, where a terrorist was able to LEGALLY purchase an assault rifle (AK-47) in Vegas, then drive hours to a food festival in Cali leaving 6 more people dead including a young infant baby boy! Imagine a world where it’s easier to get an AK-47 than a VISA! Imagine a world where they build a wall to keep terrorists IN AMERICA!!! My prayers and deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims and the communities affected and traumatized, from Texas, California, and Ohio! I’m so sorry for your loss! Nobody deserves to die like this! NOBODY!

In both the aforementioned incidents, gunmen had used powerful rifles to open fire on a lot of people in a very little time. In El Paso, as many as 20 people were killed and 26 got injured, while in Dayton, 9 people were killed and 27 got injured. In a third shooting which occurred at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California, three people were killed.
