ABC News is one of many outlets pushing this story for the narrative.
Latino activists held a rally to demand action from Texas lawmakers one week after a shooting at an El Paso Walmart killed 22 people and injured dozens more.
Members of the League of United Latin American Citizens, which considers itself the nation’s oldest and largest Latino civil rights organization, marched Saturday in Dallas to call for Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to hold a special session on strengthening gun regulations.
See, in the wake of an anti-Hispanic shooting, Hispanics are demanding gun control.
We must take away the guns, for the minorities.
I guess LULAC didn’t get the flyers out to all the Latinos in Texas fast enough.
From The New York Post:
Dozens of El Paso residents — most of them Hispanic — have flocked to buy weapons and attend firearms classes at one of the Texas city’s largest gun shops in the wake of the mass shooting that killed 22 people at a local Walmart.
Michael McIntrye, general manager at the Gun Central store, told Reuters on Friday that his store tallied double its usual number of sales in the week following the Aug. 3 rampage.
McIntrye? That sounds Scottish. Why is he selling guns to Hispanics? The media as absolutely assured me that white gun owners are all anti-immigrant racists.
Handguns, which can be strapped to the ankle or shoulder under clothing, accounted for most of the sales, the manager said.
Good thing Texas is pretty friendly to concealed carry. I guess Texas is going to see a spike in CCW applications over the next few weeks to months.
“We actually had two people buy guns here who were actually in the Walmart on the day of the shooting,” McIntrye said. “The other people are just saying, ‘Hey, you know, I want to be able to protect myself in the event of something going on.’ This is not the last mass shooting we’re going to see.”
They are right. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst, carry always (wherever it is legal).
The shop also hosts classes for people interested in obtaining their concealed carry licenses — and the number of attendees has multiplied following the shooting, according to McIntrye.
Like I said.
“I have over 50 for this Saturday class and approximately the same amount for the Sunday class, and I normally have approximately seven,” McIntyre said.
What is the deal with this White Supremacists, teaching Brown people how to use guns to defend themselves? I am very confused.
This seems to be the beginning of a Hispanic version of Operation Blazing Sword.
