US-SHOOTING-EL PASO

Texas Governor Greg Abbott believes it's time for the state legislature to get more pro-active following last weekend's shooting at an El Paso Walmart. Abbott says the Texas Department of Public Safety will start identifying potential terrorists, hate groups, and racists who may post a threat to anyone. He also pushed for the banning of 8chan and other websites where people promote racist ideologies. Abbott did suggest making sure deranged people did not get guns without violating the Second Amendment. He's promising to begin roundtables later this month to discuss laws and executive action to make cities safer. The mass shooting killed 22 people and left dozens more injured.
