EL PASO, Texas (Reuters) – More El Paso residents than ever before crowded into a class over the weekend to become certified to carry a concealed gun in public in Texas after this month’s mass shooting at a Walmart store that killed 22 people.

Guadalupe Segovia, 35, was at the class with her two children. She said her military husband had long been pushing for her to get a concealed-carry license, which allows the holder to wear a gun hidden under their clothes or carry it in a purse when they are in public.

The article goes on to state the following:

Segovia said she felt urgency to do the required training now after the attack hit close to home. “I’m still going to be scared, even carrying a weapon,” she said.

The vast majority of people at the classes were Hispanic; El Paso is a predominantly Latino city. Police say the accused gunman deliberately attacked Hispanics in the Walmart.

    Race has nothing to do with carrying a gun and protecting yourself and your family. I’m glad to see all people take the initiative to be proactive and take a firearms class. I always feel safer when I see people carrying guns. They have been trained and licensed.

    One of the most insidious powers of today’s corrupted mainstream media is to ignore and not tell us the truth behind a story.

    What exactly do the corrupted mainstream media not wish you to know in regards of past August 3rd, 2019 when a socialist killed 22 people and injured 24 others ?

    Our corrupted mainstream media ignored his manifesto called the “Inconvenient Truth” so they blame Donald J. Trump in regards to illegal criminal aliens, and as well as the travel ban that blocked muslim religious terrorists disguised as refugees from entering the United States of America.

    The shooter from El Paso, Patrick Wood Crusius stressed environmental aspects to his motivations to murder.

    He named his manifesto, the inconvenient truth in tribute towards the environmentalist movie propaganda by Al Gore, along with anti-corporalist ideology that surrounds a conspiracy to replace human beings.

    A similar manifesto to the Unabomber manifesto written by an anarchist named as Theodoro Kaczynski.

    It makes me very . happy to see American citizens exercising their 2nd amendment rights to carry a weapon. You have a God given right to defend yourself and your families lives. I push people all the time to get their carry permits. I also write my representatives to make constitutional carry the rule of law. Every single solitary citizen of this nation, stand up and take charge of your own safety. When seconds count, police officers are 20 minutes away. They simply can not be everywhere, unless of course you are married to them. Even then, they can’t be at your side every minute.
