President Trump Condemns “Racism, Bigotry, and White Nationalism

On Monday, President Trump made his official remarks regarding the horrific shootings that happened over this past weekend in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.

On Saturday, in El Paso, Texas a crazed gunman went into a Wal-Mart store and murdered 20 people as well as injuring 26 others.

On Sunday, another crazed lunatic starting shooting on a crowed street, in which he murdered 9 people (including his sister) as well as injuring 27 others.

In his remarks President Trump stated,

“These barbaric slaughters are an assault upon our communities, an attack upon our nation, and a crime against all of humanity. We are outraged and sickened by this monstrous evil, the cruelty, the hatred, the malice, the bloodshed, and the terror. Our hearts are shattered for ever family whose parents, children, husbands, and wives were ripped from their arms and their lives. America weeps for the fallen.”

He also went on to say,

“In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry, and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America. Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart, and devours the soul. We have asked the FBI to identify all further resources they need to investigate and disrupt hate crimes and domestic terrorism–whatever they need.”

Trump went on to list certain objectives aimed at curbing these disturbing crimes that continue to plague our society. First the president said that there needs to be a better system to help identify true threats to violence before it comes to a boil. The expectation will be for local, state, federal agencies, and social media companies to work in conjunction to develop tools to help detect mass shooters before they act.

Next Trump stated that glorifying violence, especially in video games needs to end.

“It is too easy today for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence. We must stop or substantially reduce this, and it has to begin immediately. Cultural change is hard, but each of us can choose to build a culture that celebrates the inherent worth and dignity of every human life.”

Another step mentioned was to start reforming mental health laws, so there can be a better system in place to identify mentally disturbed individuals. Anyone who can open fire on a crowd of innocent people are not thinking rationally.

Those individuals need help, not just a therapist once every few months to fill a prescription, but real dialed in care aimed at getting to the source of the issues that cause these disturbed people to act out so horribly.

The last element Trump spoke of will be to introduce more viable red flag laws. The expectation will be to take away firearms from people who are judged to be a public safety threat.

“…[T]hose judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms, and that, if they do, those firearms can be taken through rapid due process.”

Our prayers go out to the victims of these tragic incidents over this past weekend. Our lawmakers need to do something to help prevent these mass murders. The biggest hurdle will be trying to figure out a way to balance safety along with individual liberty. The actions of a few cannot affect the rights of many.

We as people need to be protected from this evil, whether its with our individual right to bear arms or with help from the government and doctors to identify and treat the psychotic people who carry out these heinous crimes.
