In the span of just 13 hours, two mass shootings occurred in the US, leaving 29 dead and 53 injured. The first shooting, in El Paso, Texas, left 20 dead and 26 injured at a Walmart. As the nation was still digesting the first shooting, the second shooting occurred: 9 dead and 27 injured at a bar in Dayton, Ohio. The El Paso gunman was taken alive, while the Dayton gunman was killed in a shootout. Some are blaming the increased political tensions throughout the nation for the attacks, especially pointing out the growth of white nationalism under the Trump administration.
