Many politicians jumped in and politicized this terrible tragedy. They blamed that the gun control should be improved. Of course, that wouldn’t make a difference, because the shooter used those rifles with bump fire stocks, which are legal.
After the shooting, the gunman was found dead in the room. It is assumed that he killed himself. His motives for the shooting are still unknown. Also, the police don’t have any information from where he acquired all those weapons.
This was the most devastating massacre in the American History. Hopefully, events like these will never be repeated again.
