Shortly after the massacre, Governor Greg Abbott first addressed the shooting at a news conference.

In a state that had seen five other mass shootings in his tenure, four of which involved similar assault-style rifles, Abbott said—with passionless delivery—that the killer acted “incomprehensibly.”

Without any specifics whatsoever, he pledged the state would “do everything that is necessary” to prevent a seventh bloodbath.

The next day in Uvalde, it was almost like Abbott had taken notes.

In perhaps his most deranged comment, Abbott said the massacre “could have been worse”—had law enforcement not so bravely and effectively intervened.

In reality, Abbott in 2019 signed laws making it easier to carry guns in public places.

In the race for governor, Abbott has gleefully and relentlessly bashed O’Rourke for saying in 2019 that he supported the confiscation of assault rifles. »
