On top of all the tragedy, this is really something we can do without....

Biden is trying to boost his poll numbers by reacting and the same with Harris. They want to take full advantage of this.

Murder the unborn with glee but grab those guns while the grabbing's good...

I don't know how they can say all this with a straight face. Murdering millions of unborn children as a woman't right, but 18 born children get murdered and it's a horrific tragedy!

Both are HORRIFIC Tragedies in my book...

"Never Waste a Good Crisis" Obama

The President, Congressmen, Governors, Actors, Athletes are SURROUNDED by armed(Firearms) men. They have the balls to tell everyone else we should be unarmed and at the will of criminals? Come on, who buys this shiite?

Firearm Rights people are right, protect our schools. Though if senators, governors, speaker of the house, presidents, etc had children in these schools, this would not happen.


Still to many conflicting reports. Two dead, four dead, ten dead, fourteen dead, twenty dead, twenty one dead, shooter still on the run, shooter dead at scene, shooter arrested, shooter shot his family, shooter shot his grandmother, shooter crashed his vehicle and ran into school and shot one teacher.....way to many. Lets sit back and see what really is.

This one claims to have the story.

shot his grandmother before fleeing the scene in a battered truck carrying guns and copious ammunition.
According to CBS News, Ramos' grandmother, who is in a critical condition, was only discovered after the shooting when officers arrived at her home to investigate.
After driving erratically across town, Ramos eventually crashed his car into a ditch near Robb Elementary School. Some bystanders approached the car to offer assistance.
"People thought that he was in trouble and so they jumped out to help him and he came out of his vehicle and started shooting at them," one person told the Spanish language network Telemundo.
A police officer who works at the school and then two officers from the Uvalde police department all fired at Ramos - but they could not stop him and instead called for back-up, Eric Estrada from the Texas department of public safety told CNN.

Ramos entered the school at 11:32 local time,
where he embarked on a 45-minute rampage
in which he "shot and killed horrifically, incomprehensibly", according to Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

As police arrived at the scene,
Ramos, who was clad in body armour, barricaded himself in the classroom and prepared for a showdown with law enforcement officials.
Travis Considine, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, told reporters that two police officers were injured after after exchange of fire with Ramos.
The massacre finally came to an end after a nearby Border patrol officer breached the classroom and shot Ramos in the head.

Not that I want it (quite the opposite in fact) but I’m surprised there has yet to be a clamoring for “only police and military should have body armor”.

So, why did the cop who was assigned to the school not go back into the school with the other two cops and stop the kid from going on a 45 minute shooting spree?

Has anyone looked at school curriculum with an eye for a connection to shootings?

We're mocked for being inflexible in our gun rights dogma. There's also dogma associated with school curriculum.

What has changed in the last 50 years to bring on school shootings? School curriculum and CRT to name two.

It bears looking into.

From what I have read the SRO officer shot at the kid and possibly hit him but he had body armor on. That was when he first entered the school and that caused him to drop his ammo bag and run into the first class room and barricade the door.
With that said I have read so many different things about this shooting it's hard to get things straight. I just watched a interview of his grandfather and on the news yesterday they said he was deceased(not from this incident).

Same here, way too many shoot from the hip / look to our news propaganda first out there. Read it wasn't body armor and just a tactical vest.

The murderer was wearing a tactical vest containing 33(?) loaded magazines but not containing trauma plates. The SRO was shot and wounded after exchanging fire with the murderer.

Ok if he was shot and wounded then what of the two other officers? Ya, lots of questions to get to the bottom of this yet they're going after firearms like acid on flesh. Seeing the shooter was not white I don't see any firearm laws being passed on a fed level. Maybe after the elections? who knows. I know Connecticut is starting up with their big firearm push, seeing it was shot down a few months ago and now this.

You know seeing Connecticut has so many firearm deaths and mass shootings here. You read about it in the paper at least twice a week. Worse then any other place in the world. Cap-necticut its called. (sarcasm)...more like nap-necticut.

To me it is might suspicious that things like this happen close to elections or when there is something else going on that attention needs to be diverted from. There needs to be a deep dive into this persons background and see what is found. But this is just my opinion. I mean if you are willing to kill a baby, sky is the limit I guess. It is a very sad world we live in.

I HOPE IT'S NOT TRUE!

The armed school resource officer did nothing to stop the shooter
The cops waited half an hour to enter the school and was tazing parents who wanted to stop the shooter
The cops entered the school and did nothing, they told the kids if they need help to shout out. When the kids did they gave themselves away and got shot.
They waited outside the room.
When the cops finally entered the room where the shooter was the cops didn't shoot the psycho they just watched him shoot more kids till he shot himself
