In the span of less than 24 hours this weekend, two men hundreds of miles apart used semi-automatic assault rifles equipped with high-capacity magazines to collectively kill 29 people and wound dozens more.
The attacker in El Paso, Texas, published a manifesto explaining his attack was intended to kill Latinos, who he said are “invading” America and destroying the country. The motive of the shooter in Dayton, Ohio, is not yet known, but he made a hit-list of fellow students he wished to kill while in high school. One former classmate said he “always had a problem with women” and many of those on the hit-list were girls who had rejected him sexually.
Here are the social media responses to the shootings from Arizona’s congressional delegation, along with how much money they have received from gun-rights and gun-control groups during their congressional campaigns.
Martha McSally (R)
$372,615 lifetime from gun-rights groups✔
My heart breaks for the victims and their families. Praying for those involved and for our first responders.
