He said:

“We don’t have more ‘crazy’ or ‘mentally unstable’ people in the US. What we DO have are commonplace mass shootings with automatic and semi-automatic high powered firearms. THAT cannot be disputed. Tell me what we and our government must do. Prayers and sympathy are not enough.”

Other famous rockstars also taked about the matter including Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT), Nikki Sixx (MÖTLEY CRÜE), Sebastian Bach (SKID ROW), Dee Snider (TWISTED SISTER) and Alex Skolnick (TESTAMENT).

The gunman who opened fire in Texas left seven dead and 22 injured was fired from work hours before Saturday’s shooting. The information comes from TV Fox News.

Local officials told the network that the shooter described how a 30-year-old white man works as a truck driver and according to The New York Times himself.

According to Fox News, investigators reported that the shots were fired at random. Among the injured is a 17-month-old baby who is undergoing surgery for injuries caused by the shooting.

According to the Gun Violence Archive, there have been 280 mass shootings in 2019, where at least four people were injured or killed excluding the perpetrators. To date, 602 people have died in mass shootings in 2019 and 2,356 have been injured.

On Sunday, President Donald Trump said that the Odessa mass shooting “really hasn’t changed anything” about how lawmakers are approaching gun control legislation.
