Alright
Maybe? Shooting happened a block away from the school then the shooter ran to the school

ABC News
@ABC
BREAKING: At least two children are dead and over a dozen injured after an "active shooter" incident at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, according to hospital officials.

Info is a confused mess so far

Governor confirms fifteen dead - 1 teacher and 14 students.

Shooter identified as Salvador Ramos, an 18 year old high school student, also dead. Presumed killed by responding officers.

All I can find is speculation that shooter was armed with a handgun and possibly a rifle. No confirmation otherwise.

Being reported that he also shot his grandmother before going to the school.

Quote
Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin told Fox News that shots were fired offsite and that after shooting one person the gunman ran to the school where he remained barricaded.

This is classic "Gun Free Zone" mentality and response.  This needs to be the talking point.  GFZ's attract crazies.  He knew he had instant hostages and no one would be armed to contest him.

 Im sure that like every other *expletive deleted*ing mass shooter there will have been a ton of warning signs and run ins with law enforcement that were completely ignored.

Something about this one seems different.  He was engaged in gunfire with Border Patrol and supposedly ran into the school, seeking either shelter or hostages.

ARs and standard cap mags. Even if he used something else, he has a connection to those, so that's what will be focused on.

This now makes two mass shooting by 18 year olds right after the dems made a stink over 18 year olds buying guns.

A few years ago I was very skeptical about the possibility of the left being capable of engineering these types of atrocities.  I am far less skeptical now.

There are photos that suggest the scumbag was LGBTQ and a tranny.  The photos appear to come from his facebook/instagram account. Nothing confirmed yet.

Bad info.

Just watched Biden's talk. Used his wagging finger grandpa is scolding you tone through the whole thing with the voice raising, etc.

Deer don't wear kevlar vests.
18 year olds shouldn't buy assault rifles.
Assault rifles should be banned.
Assault rifle bans work. Shootings tripled since "his" AWB expired.
It's all the gun lobby.
