EL PASO, Texas (Reuters) - More El Paso residents than ever before crowded into a class over the weekend to become certified to carry a concealed gun in public in Texas after this month’s mass shooting at a Walmart store that killed 22 people.

Nicole Navarro (L) and Adriana Retana, who said they wanted to improve their marksmanship after a gunman killed 22 people at a local Walmart, practice shooting at a gun range in El Paso, Texas, U.S. August 12, 2019.

Segovia said she felt urgency to do the required training now after the attack hit close to home.

The vast majority of people at the classes were Hispanic; El Paso is a predominantly Latino city.

Police say the accused gunman deliberately attacked Hispanics in the Walmart.

“We actually had two people buy guns here who were actually in the Walmart on the day of the shooting.

With or without a weapon, McIntyre acknowledged most people would not be able to fight back in an attack like the one in El Paso. »

Of the first few Fox films that Disney was tasked with distributing this year, only one, “Breakthrough,” released in April, was profitable.

The other Fox movies that Disney released — “X-Men: Dark Phoenix,” the action comedy “Stuber” and “The Art of Racing in the Rain,” which opened this past weekend to just $8.1 million — were flops.

Looking for quick fixes, Disney has subsequently shuttered much of Fox film’s development slate, intends to shrink its theatrical output and has ordered reboots of beloved Fox library titles for its direct-to-consumer platform, Disney Plus. »
