With the death toll of the Texas Elementary school which comes just 10 days after the New York supermarket mass shooting, this incident is now the deadliest mass shooting of 2022, but it isn’t the only mass shooting that has happened in America this year!

Out of those 202 mass shootings, 27 have been inside Schools which have left 140 children and teachers dead!!


Prominent Democrats immediately blamed Republicans for the shooting, with at least one hurling profanities at multiple Republicans. 

“F— your prayers.  They haven’t worked for the last 20 mass shootings how about passing laws that will stop these killings,” Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., tweeted at Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif.

Gallego also tweeted at Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas: “Just to be clear f— you @tedcruz you f—ing baby killer.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also expressed her emotions on this matter saying “There is no such thing as being ‘pro-life’ while supporting laws that let children be shot in their schools, elders in grocery stores, worshippers in their houses of faith, survivors by abusers, or anyone in a crowded place,”

Adding “It is an idolatry of violence. And it must end.” on Twitter.


Hillary Clinton also came out and demanded for legislations in wake of this mass shooting to stop such events from happening again

“After years of nothing else, we are becoming a nation of anguished screams. We simply need legislators willing to stop the scourge of gun violence in America that is murdering our children,” Hillary Clinton says after Texas elementary school shooting.


A year before Uvalde school shooting, Texas expanded gun rights

A year before Uvalde school shooting, Texas expanded gun rights, Last June, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law seven measures to expand gun rights, one of which allows people to legally carry handguns without licenses.

“Texas will always be the leader in defending the Second Amendment, which is why we built a barrier around gun rights this session,” Abbott said that day, flanked by representatives of the National Rifle Association.

One of the laws passed last year authorizes so-called constitutional carry, which means law-abiding Texans, 21 or older, no longer need a license to carry a handgun in public.

Another new law made Texas a “Second Amendment Sanctuary State” against new federal gun-control regulations.

Other laws made it legal for hotel guests to store firearms in their rooms and allowed gun owners to carry firearms in their holsters of choice.

“I hope she is alive.”

Adolfo Cruz, a 69-year-old air conditioning repairman, remained outside the school Tuesday night, waiting for word about his 10-year-old great-granddaughter, Eliajha Cruz Torres, whose whereabouts remained unknown to family.
