Putin conveys condolences to Trump over Texas shooting

In the wake of the Texas shootings, President Donald Trump stated that the shootings stem from a "mental health problem", not guns, as the assailant had a history of domestic violence.

One more way to consider this data: The IHME also estimates what it would expect a country's rate of gun violence deaths to be based exclusively on its socioeconomic status. "We can not put into words the pain and grief we all feel and we can not begin to imagine the suffering of those who lost the ones they love", Trump said at the top of his previously scheduled remarks to business leaders at the United States embassy in Tokyo. He said that in a time of grief "Americans will do what we do best: we pull together and join hands and lock arms and through the tears and sadness we stand strong". We also are aware of the types of remarks made from a certain demographic in this nation to such reports. He appeared in a joint press release with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe. How about during the past year? On Sunday, he used an assault-style rifle, a Ruger AR-556, to slaughter 26 people in a Texas church. "Fortunately somebody else had a gun that was shooting in the opposite direction, otherwise it wouldn't have been as bad as it was, it would have been much worse".

None of this ends unless we do something to stop it.

"Yes. Because people are more aware of the problem of extreme events and it helps find solutions".

"My heart sunk to the pit of my stomach, once again, when I heard of today's shooting in Texas", Murphy said. We have not invested in basic protections to close gaps in our background check system that allow risky people ready access to guns. Oh, and maybe round up the guns while you're at it.

"While we mourn the loss of the Texans brutally gunned down in their house of worship-many of whom were children-we can not wait another day to do something to help stop future tragedies like this".

We have rightly put women's studies' into the curricula of schools and colleges. We can vote against those who refuse.

Big changes are required in every segment of society in order to achieve this shift, but it is both possible and necessary. Thoughts and prayers - a meaningless phrase from those who repeat it but do nothing in the face of unimaginable massacres, one after the other. In a paper presented on November 2 at an Association for Public Policy & Management conference in Chicago, Sierra Smucker and Philip Cook of Duke University studied more than 800 intimate-partner murders over a decade in North Carolina.

Pray our president and Congress are granted compassion, wisdom and courage.
