His statement has brought attention to the latest two mass shootings took place in Texas and Ohio during the weekend. In El Paso, Texas, a heavily-armed white man has entered the Walmart store in the city, eight kilometers from a border checkpoint with Mexico, and opened fire at shoppers who were mostly Hispanic in a hate crime that the police are still investigating.
A few hours later, another gunman opened fire at a bar killing eight people; including his sister and injuring 27.
