1 Protestors Disrupt Trump’s Visit to Dayton and El Paso
Like any good leader would do, President Trump paid a personal visit to the cities affected by this past weekend’s senseless mass shootings. Trump offered words of encouragement and compassion to the cities. He ensured the survivors knew that God is watching over them.
Unsurprisingly, the Left turned what should have been a solemn visit into a Trump-bashing parade.

This is the problem with the Left: everything is about THEM. They’ll protest and complain in the streets even in the aftermath of tragedies. Thankfully, Trump was able to stay on schedule and avoid most of the mindless demonstrations in Dayton.
2 James Mattis Returns to General Dynamics’ Board of Directors
General Dynamics, an influential aerospace and defense company, welcomed Mattis back into their board of directors. He previously held a seat there from 2013 to 2017 before serving as Trump’s Defense secretary for two years. The two didn’t fully align on important issues, so Mattis has decided to return to his previous position.
James Mattis is an invaluable asset to our country wherever he decides to serve and we wish him well.

3 Texas to Allow Guns in Churches and Schools
Texas legislators had already approved a series of bills to enable citizens to carry weapons in schools and churches before the El Paso shooting. Unfortunately, the laws don’t go into effect until September 1. No area is gun-free to a shooter, so why shouldn’t Texans be allowed to carry firearms for protection?
Texas gun laws are set to loosen in September, a month after the El Paso mass shooting killed 22 people.
New laws going into effect:
– allow handguns in places of worship
– let people store guns, ammunition in school parking lots
– lift the cap for # of armed marshals at schools pic.twitter.com/WSoIpwxs8w

Gun advocates criticize state legislators for dragging their feet even after last year’s shootings, especially the Las Vegas incident. If this law had already gone into effect, then maybe the tragedy at El Paso wouldn’t have occurred.
