We do thing bigger in Texas including having the biggest liar as our Governor.
It not low enough for Abbott to sign legislation sitting with the head of the NRA to protect guns in Texas right after the Santa Fe shooting. It’s not low enough for Abbott to say “It could have been worse” after 19 children were gunned down with the very weapon Abbott protected. No it’s not low enough for Abbott so he went further.
According to the Houston Chronicle he claimed, incorrectly, that he could not call a special session because it was unconstitutional to raise the age to buy an AR15 from 18 to 21. He thinks we are idiots. There are limits across the country on the age you can purchase an assault weapon. In some states no one can buy an assault weapon. In the United States we had a complete ban on the purchase of assault weapons for 10 full years until the Republican Party let it lapse. So Greg Abbott just fuckin lied to their sad faces.
Even if Abbott was right, and he is not, he could put this to the voters in Texas and amend the Texas Constitution to raise the age to 21 and it would pass 80-20. He could put a complete ban on assault weapon ownership and it would pass 60-40. But it is so much easier to just be like trump and lie like a rotten dog.
The Uvalde parents have been demanding Abbott to call a special session to raise the age to buy a rifle from 18 to 21. The shooter that killed their children was 18 and was able to buy multiple assault weapons and more according to the NYPost he bought:
- Smith and Wesson M&P15 (also an AR-15-style rifle)
- Daniel Defense DDM4 V7 (an AR-15-style rifle)
- 375 rounds of M193, a 5.56mm 55-grain round with a full metal jacket
- 60 30-round magazines,
- a holographic weapon sight
- Hellfire Gen 2 snap-on trigger system
- 1,740 rounds of 5.56mm 75-grain boat tail hollow point
By now if you don’t know who Greg Abbott is then you will never know what he is.
