From the Washington Post: "Two Uvalde police officers and a school resource officer fired at the shooter, but it did not stop him from entering the building." There were armed people at the scene. It didn’t stop him.

I just signed an Executive Order that delivers the most significant police reform in decades. It will increase accountability, ban chokeholds, restrict no-knock entries, and more for federal law enforcement officers — and it incentivizes state and local officers to do the same.

Heartbreaking. This video will give you goosebumps. How many lives will have to be sacrificed in the name of political power? 90% of Americans support common sense gun laws. 50 Republican Senators are blocking it. The time to do something is now. #DemCast

50 Republicans are blocking legislation that is supported by 90% of Americans. They aren't there representing us, they're there for power & money. #DemCast
I’ve called on Congress to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, but Senate Republicans have stood in the way of progress. That’s why this afternoon, I’m taking action and signing an Executive Order that delivers the most significant police reform in decades.

Red flag laws could have stopped this. Universal background checks could have stopped this. 90% of Americans support these things. #DemCast

Matthew @McConaughey speaks for us all today. "As you all are aware there was another mass shooting today, this time in my hometown of Uvalde, Texas. Once again, we have tragically proven that we are failing to be responsible for the rights our freedoms grant us." #uvalde

Republicans are putting guns and political power above their God. They're sacrificing children's lives for political power. Shameful. #DemCast
NEW: Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), discussing the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, TX, says the “secularization of society” and “loss of faith” are to blame. “I think the solution is renewed faith.”

Retweet if you demand a vote in the Senate on the background check bill passed by the House. Retweet if you want to get every Senator on the record, regardless of the outcome. Cc: @SenSchumer #EnoughIsEnough
