The Walmart was "at capacity," and at a mall across the parking lot, 1,000 to 3,000 people were shopping.

A terrifying look at the Fox News propaganda loop and how it treats mass shootings.

750,000+ views since last night for #MoscowMitch! One million here we come!

My two cents as this deputy speaks and suggests they worry that people are doing self-care or left scene: El Paso officials should make it clear there will be no immigration enforcement at hospitals or family reunification centers. Period. MAKE IT CLEAR.

90% of America wants universal background checks -- and McConnell won't even give them a vote. If 9 of 10 citizens want something and one party can block from even being considered for decades, are we even a democracy?

JFC. Heard a reporter say some of those injured in the #ElPasoShooting may be avoiding hospitals and family reunification centers because they’re afraid of ICE.

I am heartbroken to learn about the mass shooting in El Paso. My prayers are with the victims and their families and I thank the first responders for their swift actions. For the sake of our children and generations yet unborn, this must stop

The women being arrested tells her fellow citizens hauling her away that she's seventy years old and was doing nothing wrong

I have no sense of what actual opinions at large on guns are because I only see the worst people alive lying about what the real causes of shootings are after one happens on here.

And there it is, kids. A 21 yr old White male responsible for the deaths of over 20 people. But please, @GOP. Keep telling everyone it's the Black and Brown people they need to worry about.

You’ve watched #TheGreatHack and you’re looking for academic research on psychometrics and a philosophy of democracy with which to critique political hyper-targeting…here’s a great paper to start from

Not going to name who El Paso officials are saying the shooter is by name, because screw giving that monster any publicity, but a tweet featuring this disturbing image is one of the few things he liked from what appears to be his Twitter profile.

Speaking of your Daddy issues and war, I remember when I was at the CIA and he wanted to invade a country so bad he not only ignored our terrorism analysis, he lied about it on the Sunday talk shows. The whole world is still paying the price.

You want an assault weapon? Go sign up for the military.

Here is suspect being arrested

NBC News: There are at least 19 people killed and 40 people injured as a result of the shooting at the shopping center in El Paso, TX, according to senior U.S. law enforcement officials briefed on the investigation.

America is the laughingstock of the world.

As @tedcruz sends his #thoughtsandprayers for #ElPasoShooting, this is the image you need to keep in mind:

In case you’re wondering, the amount of time @realDonaldTrump spends mourning mass shootings in America before going back to congratulating himself is 14 minutes.

Stop selling guns and that may solve some problems.

First time hearing an alert like this

JUST IN: KTSM can confirm this is a photo of the suspected shooter as they entered the Cielo Vista Walmart this morning. #EPShootin

Today in Moscow, Putin’s storm troopers are threatening to cut off the fingers of arrested protestors who refuse to be fingerprinted. Same police officers are now wearing balaclavas to hide their identities after some being outed last week through crowd sourcing

In addition to not allowing a vote on election security, #MoscowMitch blocked a vote on background checks for gun purchases.

Authoritarian statism always ends one way

Beto O'Rourke gets emotional reacting to the El Paso shooting: "El Paso is the strongest place in the world. This community is going to come together. I'm going back there right now to be with my family and to be with my hometown."

We are closely monitoring the situation in El Paso. While we are grateful for heroic first responders, our hearts ache for the families of those who were killed & the injured. Action must be taken to finally

Devastating developing news out of El Paso. We must act to end the deadly gun violence epidemic that has impacted far too many communities throughout our country. My thoughts with all who have been impacted by this senseless tragedy.

There can be no prosecution where there is no crime. A prosecution of Comey for writing and releasing his own memos that were later classified would end in humiliation for the prosecution.

The latest example that the President is his own Director of un-Intelligence. Giving Kim a free pass will only embolden him further while tearing apart the global non pro architecture. You don't need a security clearance to know that.

"Trump is extremely sensitive to anything that might suggest his presidency is illegitimate because of Russian interference, which appears to be why McConnell won’t bring election security legislation to a vote,"

"He added that Trump used to comp Epstein’s mother and aunt at one of Trump’s Atlantic City casino hotels. When a Post reporter sought further details, Mark Epstein hung up.”
