Former Texas cop: Mass shootings ‘going to keep happening’ until ‘automatic rifles’ are ‘off the streets’

F. Steven Spainhouer, who rescued a child from the bloody aftermath of Saturday’s mass shooting at the Allen Premium Outlets in Allen, Texas, tore into arguments that massacres are the result of “mental health” or anything other than easy access to high-powered weapons during an MSNBC appearance on Sunday.

Nine people including the assailant were killed and seven others were injured in the attack, which was the 199th of its kind so far in 2023.

“I worked around people that have mental health issues. This, I don’t know what the gunman’s problem was. I don’t know his motive, but it wasn’t mental health that killed these people. It was an automatic rifle with bullets. That’s what killed ’em,” Spainhouer, the deputy vice chair of the Texas Democratic Veterans Caucus, told host Jonathan Capehart.

Spainhouer, whose son was inside an H&M during the assault, also blasted elected officials whose predictable responses typically contain little except boilerplate well-wishing.

“It could be you. It could be your family member. I never imagined it would be me. I never imagined it would happen in my community, but it did. And we’ve got to stop this type of carnage. And all the politicians are going to make statements. They’re gonna offer prayers and condolences, prayers and condolences won’t bring these people back,” Spainhouer said. “We need some action in our legislatures at the federal and state level for better gun control. And I’m saying that as somebody who loves guns.
