    Gun makers defended their product on Wednesday during a tense House hearing on mass shootings, saying 'murders are responsible' for the deaths. Democrats revealed American gun manufacturers earned more than $1 billion from the sale of AR-15-style semiautomatic weapons over the last decade, as lawmakers grilled gun makers after a recent series of mass shootings led to multiple deaths in Uvalde, Texas; Buffalo, New York; and Highland Park, Ill. Marty Daniel, chief executive officer of Daniel Defense - which made the gun used by the shooter to kill 19 school children and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas - defended his...

    Mandy Gutierrez, principal of Robb Elementary School in Texas, was suspended with pay Monday, her attorney, Ricardo Cedillo, confirmed to ABC News. A special legislative investigation into the May 24 massacre at the school found that Gutierrez was aware of security problems prior to a shooter accessing the school -- killing 19 students and two teachers -- but she had not had the problems fixed. District officials declined to discuss the suspension or what it means. Gutierrez joins school district police chief Pete Arredondo, still on unpaid administrative leave. The Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District has recommended Arredondo be fired....
  • 'They heard the screams, they heard the gunshots - and nobody stepped forward.' Al Gore says climate change deniers are as bad as the Uvalde cops who let school massacre unfold

    Former Vice President Al Gore has likened climate change deniers to the Uvalde cops who stood by and did nothing as a school massacre unfolded. In a Meet The Press interview that will air on Sunday, Gore told Chuck Todd: 'You know the climate deniers are really in some ways similar to all of those almost 400 law enforcement officers in Uvalde, Texas, who were waiting outside an unlocked door while the children were being massacred. Gore - worth an estimated $300 million thanks to his green investment fund Generation Investment Management - added: 'They heard the screams, they heard...

Reporter Edgar Munoz said in an Instagram post that the meeting was accidental and happened after...

    UVALDE, TX — After an armed private citizen bravely stopped a mass shooting at an Indiana mall, the Uvalde Police Department in Texas issued a statement of condemnation, criticizing the citizen for not waiting outside for an hour. "This is exactly why we can't have armed citizens taking the law into their own hands," said Uvalde CISD Police Chief Pete Arredondo. "We professionals know that the correct procedure is to mill around the hallway and sanitize your hands, or wait outside for an hour until the shooting stops before going in. That's the only way you can ensure nothing bad...

    The special Texas House Panel’s report on the Uvalde school shooting reveals that the attacker’s uncle drove him to the gun store believing the attacker was getting food, but he got a rifle instead. According to the report, the uncle drove the attacker “to the gun store twice.” On the first trip, the uncle indicated he “did not know they were going to pick up a rifle…the store is connected to a popular restaurant, and the attacker said he was hungry.” However, the attacker went into the store and “When he returned with a long box and no food, it...

    The mother who saved her children during the Uvalde, Texas, elementary school shooting has a message to police officers who she blames for their inaction and for holding back parents: "Turn in your badge." Angeli-Rose Gomez, placed in handcuffs outside Robb Elementary School on May 24 before hopping a fence and pulling her two sons out of the building herself, spoke with Fox News Digital last week — before a scathing 77-page report was released Sunday noting "systemic failures and egregiously poor decision-making" on behalf of law enforcement responding to the active shooting situation. Despite a robust response of at...

    Nearly 400 law enforcement officials rushed to a mass shooting at a Uvalde elementary school, but “egregiously poor decision-making” resulted in more than an hour of chaos before the gunman who took 21 lives was finally confronted and killed, according to a damning investigative report. The nearly 80-page report was the first to criticize both state and federal law enforcement, and not just local authorities in the South Texas town for the bewildering inaction by heavily armed officer “Law enforcement responders failed to adhere to their active shooter training, and they failed to prioritize saving innocent lives over their own...
  • Texas panel report reveals chilling way Uvalde school shooter Salvador Ramos easily amassed weapons on his 18th birthday

    NY Post ^ | 07/17/2022 | Kate Sheehy
    A damning Texas probe into the Uvalde school massacre reveals in excruciating detail how easily and quickly the killer amassed his ammo and weapons. Fiend Salvador Ramos had tried to convince kin to buy him weapons before he legally turned 18 on May 16, to no avail. So he busied himself purchasing firearms accessories about three months before — “including 60 30-round magazines, a holographic weapon sight, and a Hellfire Gen 2 snap-on trigger system” — and on his 18th birthday, began stockpiling the other crucial elements to his slaughter, the report found. That day — a week before he...

    Nearly 400 law-enforcement officers responded to the scene of the Uvalde school massacre, but their “overall lackadaisical approach” meant the gunman wasn’t confronted for more than an hour — helping him slaughter 19 fourth-graders and two teachers, a scathing new probe says. Responding to the May 24 mass-shooting scene in the Texas town were 376 law-enforcement personnel: 149 Border Patrol officers; 91 members of the state Department of Public Safety; 14 from the Department of Homeland Security; 25 from the Uvalde Police Department; 16 from the San Antonio Police Department and another 16 from the Uvalde County Sheriff’s Office, according...

    Newly released footage from inside Robb Elementary School during the mass shooting shows more dysfunction and failure by first responders as cops stand around waiting for instructions and Police Chief Pete Arredondo pleads with the shooter to stop. The newly released bodycam footage from May 24, first reported by CNN, shows a stunning lack of urgency among officers as an active shooter ultimately killed 19 children and two teachers. Uvalde Schools Police Chief Pete Arredondo can be heard politely asking the gunman, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, to surrender minutes after the cops hear a burst of gunfire from inside classrooms 111...

    Insider ^ | July 17, 2020 | mass shooting at Uvalde elementary school, report says Katie Balevic
    A total of 376 law enforcement officers were at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas when a gunman was at large for over an hour on May 24, leaving 21 people dead. A majority of the officers were federal and state actors, including 149 US Border Patrol officers and 91 Texas Department of Public Safety officers. Twenty-five officers were from the Uvalde Police Department, and 16 were from the Uvalde County Sheriff's Office. "They failed to prioritize saving the lives of innocent victims over their own safety," according to an interim report released Sunday by the Texas House investigative committee...

    The 18-year-old who massacred 19 students and two teachers in Uvalde on May 24 had no experience with firearms before his rampage began. He targeted an elementary school with an active shooter policy that had been deemed adequate but also a long history of doors propped open. No one was able to stop the gunman from carrying out the deadliest school shooting in Texas history, in part because of “systemic failures and egregious poor decision making” by nearly everyone involved who was in a position of power, a new investigation into the shooting has found. On Sunday, a Texas House...

    A Texas politician has revealed that the Uvalde cop seen checking his phone in the early stages of the Robb Elementary School massacre is the husband of slain teacher Eva Mireles. She was one of the 21 people who were killed by crazed gunman Salvador Ramos at Robb Elementary School on May 24. In the footage of the shooting that was leaked on July 12, Officer Ruben Ruiz was shown entering the school and checking his phone. He was one of the first group of officers to respond to the initial 911 call. The day after the leak, Texas state...

    A cop who responded to the Uvalde school shooting massacre was captured on camera bizarrely using hand sanitizer as officers hung around the school’s hallway for over an hour before taking down the killer. The oddly-timed cowardly act, revealed in the footage first obtained by the Austin-American Statesman, only fueled the anger directed at the cops who responded to the mass shooting that killed 21 people. The 77-minute clip shows officers charge Robb Elementary School minutes after the rampage began, but then they stopped and didn’t confront the gunman for more than an hour even as Salvador Ramos shot and...

    Cops responding to the Uvalde, Texas school shooting ran away from the gunshots while 19 children and two teachers were left to die in their classrooms, according to new footage of the horrifying attack published Tuesday. The bombshell video, first obtained by the Austin-American Statesman, shows police officers rushing into Robb Elementary School on May 24 just minutes after 18-year-old Salvador Ramos began his deadly rampage — but lingering in the halls instead of going after the gunman. The officers even fled down the hallway when Ramos fired shots in their direction, according to the footage, taken from school security...
