Cornyn Returns to El Paso, Donates Blood, and Condemns Hate-Filled Act of White Supremacist

Wednesday U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) visited Vitalant’s El Paso West location to donate blood to aid survivors of the shooting in El Paso.

While there, he spoke to reporters about what Congress can do to prevent shootings like in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio from happening again in the future.

“We have tried to respond to some of these mass shootings in the past by improving our background check system to make sure that felons and other people who are already legally disqualified from getting firearms do so, but we also know that mental health is a huge factor. But this particular incident looks clearly to be the act of a white supremacist, an act of domestic terrorism.”​​​​​​ How you identify these people before they commit their crimes is really the puzzle that we have to try to be able to figure out how to solve, ” said U.S. Senator John Cornyn.

Senator John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, is a member of the Senate Finance, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees.
