    Two boys, at the time 13 and 14, were arrested in 2018 for planning a Columbine-inspired attack on an Uvalde school — in 2022. The boys, who were not named at the time of their arrests, would be 17 and 18 now. Earlier this week, an 18-year-old young man shot and killed 19 students and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde. At the time of the teen’s arrests, Uvalde Chief of Police Daniel Rodriguez said that a Morales Junior High School student, 14, and a former Morales student, 13, were planning to conduct the attack four years from...
  • Gun deaths dropped in California as they rose in Texas: Gun control seems to work

    California’s rate of gun deaths has declined by 10% since 2005, even as the national rate has climbed in recent years. And Texas and Florida? Their rates of gun deaths have climbed 28% and 37% respectively. California now has one of the 10 lowest rates of gun deaths in the nation. Texas and Florida are headed in the wrong direction. Obviously, factors beyond a state’s laws can affect the rate of firearms deaths. The national health statistics take into account differences in the age distribution of state populations, but they don’t control for every factor that might affect gun deaths.

    Several children at Uvalde Elementary School made 911 calls begging for help as a lone gunman shot their classmates and teachers during Tuesday’s massacre in the western Texas town of Uvalde that killed 19 students and two teachers. The report of the 911 calls was made by Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw at a press briefing Friday. McCraw also said the on scene commander, the Uvalde police chief, decided the situation was a barricade and not an active shooter, even as 911 calls came in throughout the hour from the children, and held off storming the classroom...

    The manufacturer of an AR-15-style assault rifle that Salvador Ramos used to kill 19 kids and two teachers has been slammed for posting an online ad featuring a toddler clutching a similar weapon just days before the massacre. “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it,” Daniel Defense wrote in the ad shared on Twitter on May 16, eight days before the slaughter at Robb Elementary School. The line refers to a proverb in the Bible.
  • Harrowing video shows Texas cops RESTRAINING parents outside elementary school shooting and telling them 'we're taking care of it': Cops took up to 90 minutes to get inside classroom where gunman had trapped kids 'because they needed a key'

    Shocking new video has emerged showing Texas cops restraining parents as they tried to rescue their kids on Tuesday after a gunman unleashed terror inside the elementary school, as questions grow over why it took so long to get to the shooter after the first 911 call. Salvador Ramos, 18, arrived at the school in Uvalde at 11.30am, crashing his car into a ditch. A school resource officer was at the scene but he failed to stop him from making his way inside. Two other cops also rushed to the school at that time - Ramos had just shot his...

    The 13-year-old boy allegedly told a school bus driver numerous times that he was planning to "shoot up" Prescott Mile High Middle School, deputies said. PRESCOTT, Ariz. — Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office (YCSO) deputies arrested a 13-year-old boy on May 17 after he allegedly made several threats to shoot up a Prescott school. The boy, who has yet to be identified by police, repeatedly told a bus driver that he was planning to "shoot up" Prescott Mile High Middle School, deputies said. The bus driver reported it to school administrators, who then notified the teen's mother and YCSO.

    MSNBC’s Joy Reid, host of “The ReidOut,” on Thursday claimed that “there was no mental health issue” with Robb Elementary School shooter Salvador Ramos. Reid accused Republicans of “tying themselves into pretzels” by blaming everything but guns after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) initially said there were no known mental health issues with the Uvalde gunman who took the lives of 19 children and two adults.

    There was another school shooting plot aimed at a Uvalde school but it was thwarted when police arrested two teens who had detailed plans for what was described as a “mass casualty event.” In 2018 police arrested two 13 and 14-year-old boys. They initially plotted an attack at Uvalde High School in 2022, their senior year, on the anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting. But police said one of the teens convinced the other to move the date of the attack sooner and instead carry out the plot at Morales Junior High School that year. The 2018 arrests have...

    There is a great deal we can do to stop the horrors of mass killings from happening. Gun control is the least effective tool in our arsenal. If not a gun, easily obtained illegally, then a knife, bow and arrows, club, automobile, bomb, electrocution, poison, rock, suffocation, alchohol, and on and on and on. The means to commit murder are limitless. Controlling the urge to kill is the issue. Liberals who want to control guns as a means of stopping murder are simply too shallow minded to be able to think about the problem rationally. Controlling guns does not control...
  • Leftist Journalist Julia Ioffe: ‘What If You Could Perform an Abortion with an AR-15?’

    Julia Ioffe, founding partner and Washington correspondent for Puck News, found herself in hot water on Wednesday night when she tweeted that 2nd Amendment advocates would suddenly be for banning AR-15 rifles if they were tools used in abortions. “What if you could perform an abortion with an AR-15? What if the 19 kids killed [in] Uvalde weren’t children, but fetuses?” Ioffe said in her now-deleted tweet. Twitter users immediately pounced on Ioffe for not only using the horrible tragedy in Texas as a vehicle to plug abortion but also for suggesting that 19 children would suddenly have no inherent...
  • EXCLUSIVE: Police Initially Lacked Ballistic Shield Needed to Reach Barricaded Texas School Shooter

    05/27/2022 6:32:44 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 157 replies
    Multiple law enforcement sources revealed to Breitbart Texas that part of the delay in stopping the barricaded elementary school shooter hinged on a deadly mix of the shooter’s defensive tactics and the lack of needed gear. Specifically, officers lacked the ballistic shield needed to enter the classroom with the barricaded shooter. Attempting to breach the door without a ballistic shield would have resulted in certain death for the officers which could have provided the shooter with the officers’ weapons and ammunition. There is also the possibility that the shooter could have taken police communications gear off of the officers’ bodies,...

    On Wednesday, just as a press conference about the tragic school shooting in Uvalde featuring Texas Governor Gregg Abbot was commencing, it was rudely interrupted by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Robert Francis O'Rourke who attempted to upstage the event. Was this a highly inappropriate political stunt by a losing candidate? Well, according to CBS reporter Janet Shamlian it was "very clearly staged" by the O'Rourke campaign.

    Texas cops said last night that they didn't immediately rush in to find the shooter on Tuesday's attack after being shot at because they feared they might be killed, and even suggested that they deliberately locked the gunman in the classroom where he slaughtered 21 people in order to trap him. *** He was being challenged by Wolf Blitzer over why the first officers who responded to the shooting retreated after Salvador Ramos shot at them with his AR-15 and then waited an hour for tactical SWAT teams to take him out, leaving him alone in a classroom with the...

    Not one inch. The GOP better not give up one single inch on gun freedom. The Democrats are giddy. They were hoping that SCOTUS putting the kibosh on kid killing was going to save them from annihilation in November. That did not work – Americans were less interested in preserving a non-existent right to snuff out a life two minutes from crowning than in $6 gas. But this scumbag’s murder rampage in Texas has given them new hope, they think. All the GOP has to do is be spineless and stupid. So, they’re feeling pretty confident. We could discuss the...

    The senseless murder of 19 children and two teachers at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas is leading to calls for more gun control. To some, “red flag” laws, also known as Extreme Risk Protection Orders, seem like the obvious solution. These laws allow judges to seize a person’s guns without a trial, based solely on a written complaint that the person might be a danger to themselves or others. All a judge needs is “reasonable suspicion.” “We know that we can show we can be united to protect our children,” said Sen. Joe Manchin, a famously moderate West...

    CNBC twisted exclusive comments it received from Tesla CEO Elon Musk to make it seem like he’s a gun control activist but buried his overall support for the Second Amendment. Musk reportedly emailed a number of comments about guns to CNBC following the mass murder of children and teachers at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. CNBC’s May 25 headline on its exclusive story read as follows: “Elon Musk backs ‘tight’ background checks for all gun sales in wake of mass shooting in Texas.” However, readers wouldn’t know until the 10th paragraph that Musk actually voiced support for gun rights...
