    2020 Dems Call For Action After El Paso Shooting IlWna

    From The Hill

    Rachel Frazin of The Hill wrote:Several Democratic presidential contenders called for action to end gun violence after a Saturday shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, that resulted in multiple fatalities.

    A police source told local news station KTSM that 18 people were killed. The El Paso Police Department confirmed to the outlet that there were multiple fatalities but did not say how many. Police said one person was in custody after the incident.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden; Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.); South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg; and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro expressed sadness while calling for change.

    The shooting took place in the hometown of former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas), who canceled some scheduled campaign stops to return to El Paso.

    "How many lives must be cut short? How many communities must be torn apart?" wrote Biden. "It's past time we take action and end our gun violence epidemic."

    Heartbroken to hear the news from El Paso. Our thoughts are with those impacted by yet another senseless act of gun violence in America.





    Sanders specifically faulted the Republican-led Senate that he said "does nothing" after shootings.



    Buttigieg noted a personal connection to the area where the shooting took place, saying his grandmother took him to the Cielo Vista Mall when he was younger.



    Booker tweeted that the was praying for both "everyone affected by this unspeakable tragedy" and "for our country to find the moral courage to take action to end this carnage."



    O'Rourke, who represented El Paso in Congress, delivered emotional remarks after he received news of the shooting.



    O'Rourke later tweeted praise for the people of his birthplace in a video.



    Castro, who is also from Texas, directly called for gun reform and blasted what he called "our government's failure to do its most basic duty: to protect American lives."



    President Trump also tweeted about the incident, writing "God be with you all!"

    As I post this article, I easily find myself in agreement with the following Democratic Presidential contenders:

    Joe Biden, former Vice President of the United States
    Senator Elizabeth Warren (D - Massachusetts)
    Senator Bernie Sanders (D - Vermont)
    Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D - South Bend, Indiana)
    Senator Cory Booker (D - New Jersey)
    Julian Castro, Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development

    The one quote I can most associate with is by Senator Booker when he tweeted... "We need to end this national nightmare. Praying for everyone affected by this unspeakable tragedy, and for our country to find the moral courage to take action to end this carnage." That was followed by Secretary Castro, when he said, "This attack is a tragic reminder of our government’s failure to do its most basic duty: to protect American lives. We need gun reform now."

    Senator Booker, Secretary Castro, I couldn't agree more.

    Just Saying.
