Uvalde – one wonders whether most people would even know how to pronounce the city’s name if they hadn’t heard it so often in the news media lately. Uvalde, Texas, the place where nineteen elementary school children and their two teachers were corralled in a classroom and ruthlessly shot like fish in a barrel. Uvalde will forever be etched on the national consciousness.
President Biden was quick to speak to the nation and blamed the gun lobby. Beto O’Rourke interrupted Texas Governor Greg Abbot’s press conference and railed at him for not supporting gun control laws. Senate Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer, vows to attempt the passage of stricter gun measures.
Are we this short-sighted? Are we to believe this unbelievably tragic circumstance happened because too many guns are available? The evidence doesn’t support the assertion.
