Don’t blame CCISD, but our schools are no more safer than the day before the Uvalde massacre, or the day before the Santa Fe shooting and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why.
It’s been over 4 years since the Santa Fe shooting which took the lives of 8 students and 2 teachers. Governor Abbott and other local Republicans offered endless thoughts and prayers and nothing else. Four years later 19 children and 2 teachers lost their lives in Uvalde and again, Abbott has done nothing to protect your kids or any citizen in Texas from gun violence.
After Santa Fe Abbott signed a number of NRA sponsored bills and declared Texas to be sanctuary city for guns. The bills allows anyone to walk around in public with a loaded assault rifle with a large capacity clip. They allowed the purchase and use of a silencer. The bills do not require any training or licensing. It allows them to dress like GI Joe or a cartel member with bullet proof vests. In Texas anyone over the age of 18 can still buy an assault weapon and ammunition which can blow off body parts and tear bodies to pieces.
What has Abbott done to curb gun violence? Nothing. He refuses to ban open carry, or require background checks or require extensive checks for those wanting to own an assault weapon. He refused to address red flag laws. He refuses to address the massive increase in gun violence in the State. He refuses to even talk about it. He values guns and the gun lobby more than children and their families. At least Abbott and his NRA buddies have even stopped offering useless thoughts and prayers after every mass shooting.
So when you ask if your kids school is safe, the answer is pretty fucking easy.
