Texas gunman who killed 26 sent threatening texts to mother-in-law, officials say

This article written by Tom Dart reveals to the general population the malignant evils that lays dormant in a minority of the populous. History repeats itself and with technology and media this has been made apparent more so now then ever. The rate of mass shootings are seeming to be increasing steadily making us fearful, and upset what this world is becoming. The fact that one disgruntled man is able to kill 26 and, “The youngest to die was aged 18 months.” This becomes unfathomable, solely numbers and statistics cannot begin to describe the events that took place, and the families reaction to the manner. The right to bare arms in America has always been a hot topic for debate and this article brings to pros and cons for both sides into debate. As the event took place, one citizen considered a “Texas Hero” took notice of the situation and reacted with his own deadly force, “He also appeared to have been wounded by the civilian with the AR rifle.” Our society has felt this loss to the fullest potential of our capabilities to mourn and feel sympathy for the deceased and families. However, time may not heal this wound but instead will make it a distant memory until the next event takes place. We remember Columbine, Sandy Hook, and Las Vegas and countless other times. Although, what measures will we put forth to prevent this from happening again? Why is this a mass shooting and not an act of domestic terrorism? We can have faith that the world will become a better place, but without serious measures to understand and fix mental health we will continue to notice a pattern.
