Texas Gov After School Shooting: Enough Thoughts and Prayers, Time for Action

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott reacted to Friday’s deadly high school shooting in his state by saying legislators need to do less talking and take more action in the wake of tragedies such as this one.

“We need to do more than just pray for the victims and their families. It’s time that we take action to step up and make sure this tragedy is never repeated ever again in the history of the state of Texas,” Abbott said.

A 17-year-old student walked into Santa Fe High School early Friday morning armed with a .38 revolver, a shotgun, and explosive devices. He reportedly entered a classroom and started firing.

He was soon encountered by two armed school resource officers, one of whom was shot, and was eventually arrested after gunfire was exchanged. Ten people were killed — many of them students — and 10 others were wounded.

Abbott said he will form a coalition of all stakeholders involved in preventing shootings like this one, which will include lawmakers, parents, teachers, school administrators, Second Amendment supporters, and others.

“We want to hear from everybody that has an interest in what has happened today so we can work together on putting together laws that will protect Second Amendment rights and make sure our schools and communities are safer places,” Abbott said.

The governor also revealed more details about the shooting during his press conference, saying there were indications that the suspect planned to kill himself at the end of his rampage.

“We also know that the shooter has information contained in journals on his computer and cell phone that he said that not only did he want to commit the shooting, but he wanted to commit suicide after the shooting. As you probably know, he gave himself up,” Abbott said.

“He admitted that he didn’t have the courage to commit suicide.”

    The Parents are supposed to be responsible for their children and their guns. This is what happens when libtards have children. Why is it anybody can walk into a school anytime they want to and shoot the place all to hell? Don’t they have locks on the doors? We lock the doors on our cars and homes to protect our stuff but apparently, there’s nothing in the schools worth locking. Schools are doing nothing, absolutely nothing to protect our kids. They let the shooters in. Why not put a sign out front that says “Libtard Shooting Gallery” shoot kids for free! They are doing NOTHING!!!!

    And this is exactly why ALL GUNS need to BE BANNED in public just keep them at home for protection or use for hunting – only responsible police should have them to protect the public – that is how it used to be in the 60’s & 70’s & I’m still alive at age 70 and I do not trust people with carry on guns or concealed in public – what if I say something that a person with a gun doesn’t like & feels threaten with just language & kills me on the spot using the all the time excuse “afraid for my life” stuff -I do have a 357 pistol & AR15 but I never use them or take them out in public cause I know people will be intimidated or scared – we don’t live in the cowboy times anymore & I refuse to be a showoff but if a Burglar or Raper or Sex Offender breaks into my house I will shoot to kill & show no mercy
