If you visit Odessa, do you need prayers or guns? You find everything you need for a fun and relaxing experience at Cinergy, a local movie and entertainment center. Today this relaxing experience included a deadly domestic terror attack. Many are fighting for their lives in local hospitals.

On Saturday afternoon in Texas, USA  5 innocent people are dead, 21 injured, including 3 brave police officers are among the victims

Everyday American’s can’t fix this ongoing series of domestic terror attacks in the U.S. The United States may need a Constitutional Convention to change the 2nd amendment. A 2 party system & when one party is bought by NRA (National Rifle Association)  then good luck. But to say Americans don’t want it to end just isn’t true, says a reader.

A suspect was pulled at 4.13 pm local time, driving a gold-colored Honda approaching the Cinerg complex.  He shot a police officer and fled. He then stole a postal vehicle at the scene of the mass shooting and took off again.

Visiting the United States means taking a risk of getting shot in domestic terrorism. More and more governments have been warning their citizens to take this into consideration when visiting the land of the free.

In the meantime, the divide between Republican and Democrats in this country with only two major political parties becomes more tragic.

“This F You is for all the Republicans in Congress that will be tweeting thoughts and prayers or we are with Odessa… You guys aren’t with no one but the NRA” 

On the other side, a tweet said: “Here goes the 2nd amendment!! the more mass shootings these liberal idiots want stricter gun control!! be they don’t seem to realize it’s not the gun it’s crazy people with guns that commit these mass shootings!!”

Two messages were posted addressing President Trump;
1) Thank you, President Trump, for protecting our
2nd Amendment rights to shoot people dead.

2) Dear President Trump, I am a resident here in Odessa TX, where the active shooter just shot 21 people. Sir, we need to make sure that our citizens can protect ourselves. Please do not infringe upon our 2nd Amendment Rights. We have to make sure that we can protect our loved ones
3) The 2nd amendment is to arm yourself in case of a government takeover. Tell me how your assault rifle is going to take out a drone with a bomb? We don’t need guns. Jesus will save us all.

The scene in Odessa Saturday afternoon was chaotic. Local radio KOSA reported the Music City Mall was evacuated. The station was told to “get away from the window” during live coverage. They described it as a “very chaotic scene.” The suspect just hijacked a U.S. mail carrier truck and was last seen in the area of 38th and Walnut,” the Facebook post read. “Everyone is encouraged to get off the road and use extreme caution! All law enforcement is currently searching for the suspect and more information will be released as soon as it becomes available.

After a deadly mass shooting and domestic terror attack in El Paso, Texas earlier this month, that also killed a German tourist in a Wallmart, the store refused to stop selling guns. eTN Reported about it,

A tweet summarized: “In the meantime, the NRA decided on a new marketing money maker “assault” automatic weapons. using the 2nd amendment as its ad campaign and selling to the ultra-right crazed apocalyptic, fearing the Clintons?”
