Trump mixes up California shooting with Texas shooting in tweet

America is Not Having Bad Luck With Mass Shootings

America is Not Having Bad Luck With Mass Shootings

The attack comes more than a month after the nation's deadliest mass shooting in modern history, in which a gunman opened fire on a country music festival in Las Vegas, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more.

The first service since the shooting was held over the weekend by Pastor Frank Pomeroy in a huge white tent outside the church. "This is a chance for us to say no, we love, we want to serve, and we want to sacrifice". His voice cracked as he spoke about losing his child. Last year, former St. Edward's University student, Fischer Hoisington, accidentally shot his best friend, Aaron Moore, the day of his birthday, and was convicted of manslaughter. He paused to wipe his eyes. "I guarantee they are dancing with Jesus today".

The crowd stood, clapped and raised their hands to heaven as Pomeroy spoke.

The sanctuary will remain open for people to stop in to pray. Church leaders say the chairs are placed where each victim was sitting last Sunday.

Twitter users quickly slammed Trump with many calling out his inability to remember each mass shooting that has taken place this year. He was said to have crossed the road and began firing as he approached the church and entered the place of worship.

First Baptist has yet to make an official decision about what to do with its building going forward, Ebert said, despite media reports to the contrary.

"It's kind of sad we have to do it and it is unfortunate it's something we have to think about, train and talk about, but I'm glad that people are finally coming to realize that it can happen anywhere", LaPorte said. Several others who had been injured were still being treated after the shooting occurred.

I've dedicated my career to helping churches prepare for disasters, including mass shootings. Others designated certain people in their church to always carry firearms.

The service was also attended by Republican Sen.

"The pain of losing 26 members is overwhelming", Cronyn said. The shooting took place at First Baptist Church in Texas where a small community is located at east of San Antonio! What they saw there will affect them the rest of their lives, Jackson said. When asked to comment on the Sutherland Springs shooting, President Trump stated unequivocally that this was a case of mental illness. The Air Force's chief of staff, Gen. David Goldfein, said 12 of those killed were either members of the Air Force or had family ties to it.

In a town like Sutherland Springs, when tragedy happens to one, it happens to all.

First lady Melania Trump also tweeted a simple message in the wake of the shooting: "Our hearts are with Texas". "I needed to come to show the community some support, to show these people some support".
