Beto O'Rourke Accuses Texas State Rep of 'Death Threat' for His Now Deleted Response to Beto's AR-15 Buyback Plan
It was only last month that 22 people were murdered by a racist gunman targeting Hispanics in El Paso, Texas, once again bringing gun violence to the forefront of American political issues.
El Paso is the hometown of former congressman and current Democratic Presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke, who suspended campaigning after the shooting to console his constituents and help the town recover before getting back on the campaign trail.
AOC Skewers GOP Congressman Who Says He Won't Be Able to Loan His Friends Guns with Universal Background Checks
As mass shootings continue to plague the United States, most recently in Odessa, Texas, Americans are calling for action to be taken to stem the epidemic. Among the calls to action are universal background checks, which would close federal loopholes and require background checks for private sales. While many states have laws requiring background checks for private transactions, they aren't required under federal law.
Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) wants to keep it that way. His state, which has had at least two mass shootings in 30 days, loosened gun laws the day after the Odessa shooting.
El Paso Hospital Contradicts Donald Trump's Claim That 'Doctors Came Out of the Operating Rooms' When He Visited
After two horrific shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio killed 31 people earlier this month, President Donald Trump visited the impacted cities as well as some of the medical facilities caring for the injured.

It's been two weeks since two horrific mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas resulted in the deaths of 31 people, but Americans' calls for common sense gun reform haven't relented.
This is most recently evident at an Iowa town hall for Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA). Ernst, who is up for reelection in 2020, has an A-rating from the National Rifle Association and received a nearly $10 thousand donation during her 2014 senate campaign.
Eleven Films Releases Video Pretending to Be a Movie Trailer for 'White Nationalist Domestic Terrorism' Using Real Life Video Clips
Amidst the daily onslaught of racist rhetoric and humanitarian atrocities plaguing the United States since even before the early stages of the 2016 election, Americans often wonder what the movie or television version of these past few years will look like when—or if—we ever come back from the insidious climate so many have become accustomed to.
Portland based media company Eleven Films literally just gave us a preview, and it's terrifying.
Video Reveals Trump Trying to Stay on Message in El Paso Hospital, But After He Met a Trumper It Went Predictably Downhill
President Donald Trump visited University Medical Center where victims were recovering after an anti-immigrant shooting in El Paso, Texas this past weekend which killed 22 people.
While none of the still-hospitalized victims agreed to meet with Trump, whose immigration rhetoric often mirrors the ideology of the shooter, he took pictures with medical workers. Press wasn't allowed inside the hospital, but Trump's team filmed and edited videos of the visit which were later edited and shared to Twitter by the president.
