Greg Abbott oversaw the worst response to a winter storm in Texas history. He oversaw one of the worst responses to a Covid outbreak. He oversaw the most bungled deployment of guardsmen for a stunt. And now he is overseeing the worst response to a shooting in recent history.

On Jan. 6, ⁦@Jim_Jordan⁩ abandons his ‘nothing to hide’ position. The #Ohio #Republican insisted he had "nothing to hide" about #Jan6th. Then he was subpoenaed. Suddenly, Jim Jordan now seems to have something to hide. msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show…

In his speech at the NRA convention today, @tedcruz actually said, “What stops armed bad guys is armed good guys.” That’s what happens when you write your speech a week in advance and forget to rewrite.

And here we go: The Uvalde shooter reportedly told young girls he would rape them, threatened to carry out school shootings, and showed off a gun in livestreams on the social media app Yubo. They reported his account to Yubo, but no action was taken. cnn.com/2022/05/27/us/yubo-a…

What especially strikes me about the police not only avoiding confronting the shooter, but actively keeping other people from intervening to try to stop him, is that a major part of the police's role is to keep us all from feeling empowered to take direct action against harm.

Not really, Ted...
At the NRA convention, Ted says the reasons for mass shootings are absent fathers, declining church attendance, social media, and video games.

CNN's Alisyn Camerota just asked a Texas state representative "why does your legislature work so quickly to protect embryos but not for living, breathing 10-year-olds?"

Y’all, I’m a hillbilly from EKY with a concealed carry permit & more than a few firearms. I’d gladly fill out more papers, wait longer between purchases, have my background checked, & more if it meant some kids were home with their families right now. This ain’t working.

Within a week of a mass shooting in New Zealand they banned assault weapons. Because they’re human.
