And of course he is all about the power of prayer.

The mayor of Odessa, Texas, on Sunday blamed the mass shooting in his town that claimed seven lives on “evil people” and “violent video games.”
When MSNBC news host Kendis Gibson asked Mayor David Turner how he was going to comfort the people of his town, Turner responded: “You comfort your city with prayer. We’re having a prayer vigil tonight … we will handle this one day at a time.”
“What do you say to the people who say they need more than prayer to prevent something like this from happening?” Gibson pressed. Turner told him: “There’s always going to be evil people. Evil people find ways to hurt people.”
Gibson pointed out that an assault rifle was used in the El Paso mass shooting in early August that killed 22 people, and that one was used by the Odessa shooter. “Isn’t there something common in all of this?”
Turner answered: “I think it’s a problem of the heart, to be honest with you. We have some of the most violent video games that you can see.” President Donald Trump blamed “gruesome and grisly” video games after the El Paso attack for helping to instigate mass shooters, echoing other Republicans’ claims despite no credible evidence.
It’s like he’s a puppet and the NRA is working his strings.
Once again for the record violent vidoe games can be found all over the world, but mass shootings are a uniquely American problem.
As for evil that is typically a term used by people who do not understand the human psyche and tend to use black and white terminology to cover for their lack of intelligence.
Like many politicians in Texas, this mayor is a waste of space is not up to the job of protecting his constituents.
