Speaking broadly of the two recent mass shootings, Trump said, "I just want to say that these are two incredible places, we love the people".

"The perils of internet and social media can not be ignored and will not be ignored", the president said, blaming "gruesome and grizzly video games" for the "glorification of violence in our society".

"The FBI, local and state law enforcement are working together in El Paso and in Dayton, Ohio". The first occurred on Saturday at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, where a gunman killed 20 and injured 26.

Consider the rifle used in El Paso.

The Ohio shooting came hours after a gunman opened fire in a shopping area in El Paso, Texas, leaving 20 people dead and more than two dozen injured, according to police.

Gov. Kelly has ordered flags throughout Kansas to be flown at half-staff from now until sunset on Thursday in order to honor the victims in El Paso and Dayton. "He is an open avowed racist and is encouraging more racism in this country". A 21-year-old white supremacist is in custody in the Texas domestic terrorism case. "There are no reasons or excuses that will ever justify killing innocent people", Trump tweeted Saturday night.

Former Vice President Joe Biden launched his presidential campaign with a reminder of Trump's response to the deadly 2017 attack at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, when he said there were "fine people" on both sides.

And yes, there's already been a mass shooting today, in Brooklyn. By the same token, however, a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds can make a crucial difference for people using guns to defend themselves against attacks, especially when they are confronted by multiple armed assailants.

Republicans and some moderate Democrats have resisted placing additional restrictions on gun ownership, and efforts to improve mental health services or establish new ways to identify potential shooters before they act have not gained traction.

Democratic leaders in Congress responded to the pair of shootings with a call for action.
