At least fourteen students and one teacher were killed during a shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday.
According to Governor Greg Abbott, the suspect is 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, a student from Uvalde High School. It’s believed Ramos, who reportedly shot his grandmother before the spree, was killed by responding officers.
The shooter had a handgun and possibly a rifle, said Abbott.
The situation is still unfolding, but many have already taken to social media to speak out on the latest mass shooting.
GUN CONTROL NOW! STOP THE SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENTS!
My heart absolutely breaks for the children, staff and families at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. The lack of progress around how to protect innocent lives from senseless gun violence is FAR past SHAMEFUL in this country.
Jesus Christ. Another mass shooting in America. This time in an elementary school. How many Americans, how many little kids, need to die before we finally say enough and throw-out those standing in the way of gun reform? 💔
Fuck US politics. 14 kids dead. IN TEXAS. WHERE ABORTION IS ILLEGAL BECAUSE WE CARE ABOUT “BABIES”. WHAT ABOUT THESE BABIES? TEN YEAR OLDS ARE BABIES BUT THEY’RE ALREADY BORN SO …. let them DIE because guns have more rights. Fucking disgusting. FUCK YOU @GregAbbott_TX@tedcruz
Fuck you @NRA Fuck you, every elected official who’s voted against gun reform. Fuck you @GregAbbott_TX and fuck you, every Republican voter who claims to be “pro-life” but don’t actually give the slightest shit about humans once their born. You are ignorant and complicit.
As a mother, this is the tragically unimaginable. School should be a SAFE place. My heart breaks for the pain and suffering of every family member and loved one connected to today’s events in Texas. My prayers are with you 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
