Two mass shootings in US
Gun Control Australia (GCA) sends its condolences to the people of the United States, especially to Latino communities, after two mass shootings took place on Sunday.
So far 20 people have bee killed in the border city of El Paso, Texas and nine in the city of Dayton, Ohio.
Although authorities are still confirming details, it has been reported the shootings have links to white nationalism and anti-immigrants hate rhetoric.
Samantha Lee, President of GCA states, “There are two weapons that have been used in these shootings; white nationalism and high-powered firearms. None of these weapons have any place in a civilised society and all across the political spectrum need to speak out about against such vile rhetoric and actions.”
