NO USE CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA MEDIA MARKET WEBSITES**~ After two mass shootings over the weekend, 2020 Democratic candidate Cory Booker on Wednesday said ' we must act to get the weapons of war off our streets' in Charleston, South Carolina.

Booker urged for an assault weapons ban during his speech at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church where nine people were killed in 2015 by white supremacist Dylann Roof.

The speech comes amid intensifying criticism of what many say is incendiary rhetoric by Trump following back-to-back mass shootings this past weekend.

The president, who has insisted he is not a racist, said Americans must "condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy" in a speech to the nation on Monday.

On Saturday, a gunman killed 22 people in El Paso, a Texas city on the border with Mexico.

Law enforcement agencies say he was driven by hatred for Hispanics, citing an online manifesto apparently written by the shooter that was rife with anti-immigrant hatred.

In the second mass shooting 13 hours later, a gunman in Dayton, Ohio, fatally shot nine people, including his sister, before he was killed by police.
