For the second time in less than two weeks, President Joe Biden will personally visit the scene of a deadly massacre in the United States.
“Jill and I will be traveling to Texas the next day to visit the family and let them know that we are feeling their pain, and hopefully bring some comfort to a community in shock, grief and trauma,” said the outraged Commander-in-Chief today. Said at a rally at the White House.
“I think we all have to be there for them, everyone,” Biden added.
On Tuesday, an 18-year-old gunman entered Robb Primary School in Uvalade, west of San Antonio, and killed 19 fourth-graders, a teacher and another adult. This year, the country’s 212nd mass shooting, 17 more people were injured in the Lone Star state tragedy.
The killings come after an 18-year-old white nationalist killed 13 people at a Tops Friendly Market in an African-American neighborhood in Buffalo, New York. The President and First Lady visited the Empire State site on May 17 to pay their respects and to meet the bereaved family in person.
Speaking to Tarma before boarding the Air Force One board to return to DC, Biden lamented the failed attempt to shoot after mass shootings to reignite violence and the spread of guns in America. Potash said the reform was “going to be very difficult, but I will not give up trying.”
The May 24 genocide in the border town of Uvalade shoots the worst gun-toting schools in the country in nearly a decade. On December 14, 2012, a 20-year-old rifle killed 20 children and six teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
Like the Uvalade killer, the Newtown shooter killed an elderly female member of the family before carrying out his ordeal. Sadly, like the 2012 firearms barbarism, the 30th K-12 shooting of 2022 will see any reform suffocated by party politics and the much-hyped NRA.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Texas GOP Senator Ted Cruz and Donald Trump will all address the NRA Convention in Houston on May 27. No guns are allowed at gun assemblies.
