One woman was killed and three people were injured when a 19-year-old man walked into a San Diego suburb synagogue with a rifle and opened fire. The shooting took place at Chabad of Poway on Rancho Bernardo road at around 11:23 AM local time. The synagogue’s congregation had gathered to celebrate the final day of Passover.
The suspect has not been identified, but police have stated that the shooter left a manifesto. The deranged lunatic blasts President Trump as a “Zionist, Jew-loving, anti-White, traitorous cocksucker.”
The mayor of Poway has called the shooting a hate crime. The San Diego shooting took place on the six month anniversary of the Tree of Life synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh.
President Trump tweeted this statement on the tragic shooting.
Thoughts and prayers to all of those affected by the shooting at the Synagogue in Poway, California. God bless you all. Suspect apprehended. Law enforcement did outstanding job. Thank you!

Democrat freshman Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also tweeted a statement on the horror in San Diego. Unlike President Trump, however, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took this opportunity to push for gun control.
Heartbroken to hear of the San Diego synagogue shooting, particularly so on this final day of Passover.
We have a responsibility to love + protect our neighbors.

For those of you unfamiliar with the bill, HR 8 essentially massively expands gun control in America. The bill would require background checks on all firearm sales, and would effectively ban handguns for 18-20 year olds.
In other words, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used a hate crime to push her radical gun control agenda.
By contrast, AOC was completely silent when Muslim suicide bombers slaughtered nearly 400 Christians in Sri Lanka.
Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra said it best:
-Politicized New Zealand mosque shootings
-Is now politicizing Poway synagogue shootings
-Was totally silent about the Easter day bombings at Christian churches in Sri Lanka
AOC only seems to care about victims when she can use them to push her gun control agenda

What kind of sick freak politicizes a shooting before the bodies have even cooled?
