    Something You'd better know about the El Paso Texas Shootings: "WE'RE COMING FOR YOUR GUNS!" Read & Watch Video of Actual Witness: Police have only identified one suspect in the El Paso shooting, and both his picture and his reported manifesto have been circling on the internet, but this witness and her daughter say they saw 3 or 4 men in black who were shooting inside the store... My Opinion: "Take the time to copy link to watch the Witness Nobody is gonna want you to see." These False Flags have to Stop. Real people get Hurt! "Congress won't investigate False Flags," because maybe, "their a part of it (I don't know but it doesn't make sense, that we keep getting fed Lies)."

    Another weird shooting:

    1- Pictures of the shooter show a different guy...facial hair... no facial hair, heavier set guy... Slim guy.

    2- Multiple shooters, 3 to 4 guys in all black. Police scanner multiple shooters.

    3- Shooter wearing hearing protection.

    4- Manifesto describing avoiding being captured.

    5- Twitter seasoning and suspending people with evidence that's contrary to the official story.

    6- CNN full coverage from the start.

    7- Police 20 minutes to engage.

    8- Antifa in El Paso.

    9- Beto orookys city.

    10- Anymore?

    Neither looked like hispanic to me from a photo with both shooters with their AK 47s. I'm hoping it is 1 dead and 18 injured instead of the other way around.

    Picture of suspect shows him carrying AK-47, some reports saying he is Hispanic.
    Too many conflicting stories on line at the moment to be able to find how many dead/wounded or i it was gang violence

      No worries, I'm sure they have the drugged up white patsy being kept by his handler in an unmarked van nearby. He will be *captured* when CNN gets their reporter and cameras in position.

    Don't panic people! Our Democrat overlords have repeatedly stated that our border is *totally secure*, so this incident can't possibly have anything to do with illegal aliens who are Mexican drug cartel members, armed with rifles given to them by Obama and Eric Holder. I'm sure it will turn out to be a disgruntled, white, Christian Trump supporter who doesn't like brown people due to his racism and overwhelming sense of *white privilege.*

    How is that gun free shit working for you now, WalMart pukes?
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Mark R Ensign · 6 months ago
      WalMarts in Texas are NOT gun free zones. Making the Wally World Walk after getting the Texas license to carry a gun is a Texas tradition, just to get the feeling of carrying your gun concealed. And nobody notices!!

      Also, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick told Antifa to stay out of Texas and cancel their planned resistance in El Paso. If Antifa tries anything in El Paso there will be MANY law enforcement present and they will deal with Antifa in no uncertain terms. And law enforcement will be backed up by armed citizens who will not stand by while Antifa does their thing.

        Oh, so Texas vocally isn't toeing the Leftist line, now Texas has a major 'random' mass shooting? That's surprising, not.

        Also what were the chances this guy just happens to turn up when there isn't any concealed-carry opposition? So now the media gets to crow "see how useless concealed carry is, we should ban it."

        Anyone recall Chicago's, Mayor Daley, during the 1968 Democratic Convention? His police force did not fool around at all-all business, quite unlike our powder-puff, kleenex box, sweeter than pie, Portland Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler. While ANTIFA runs rough shod over Portland residents, he hides in the bathroom doing who knows what.
