    Why should the governor allow an 18 year old mentally challenged person to buy a gun so easily at the first place?!

  2. Phoenix D on October 25, 2022 at 8:58 pm

    Shame to them at this hour nothing but pain going on in this Country !

    I am a NRA member of 40 years. I own 1200 firearms and not 1 is a military type weapon. I am strictly against them. To me a gun is a machine a work of art.

  5. P Le on October 25, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    Idiot governor lied to the parents

  6. Rolls Royce Network on October 25, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    Notice none of them who are up for re election this fall are there. It’s all politics as usual

  7. NPC Man - I SUPPORT THE CURRENT THING on October 25, 2022 at 9:04 pm

    I feel so bad for these children. 😭
    This shooting is all Donald Trump and Greg Abbott’s fault.

  8. Bunita Perdi on October 25, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    Sheet on these guys

  9. Mj on October 25, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    Imagine no guns being at the NRA conference. Is that even possible?

    While his duo’s dirty republicans Ted Cruz is present and that’s the price of money.

    "We Are Stronger"

    A Poem by Steven F Gooden
    We’re never as strong, as we are until we have to be. Never Do as much, unless the need we see. Only give our best, when we fail at mediocrity. We Love rather than hate when we admit we’re one humanity. We always give more, when compassion moves our heart with unbridled generosity. We Become more of our potential when we are made to see, that clearly our minds can believe in unfathomable possibilities, while seizing every opportunity, here in lies one’s destiny.  More than our scars, higher than our stars, for in  our flaws are what defines our features, they’re uniquely ours, as human creatures.
    We can run faster than on our slowest day. Reason better, and thinking it through all the way, regardless which direction our  emotions may sway. We can find our voice when speechless, our strong words with meekness and our Courage in weakness. Always patience not quickness. Silence for peace than loudness, quietness of fear, not hopeless, for time and effort  are equally unbiased. We are more than the stories we’re told, we’re the one’s we write, each page unfold. We are the sum of our Lies and truth, fantasy, fiction, faith, and myths, no matter how uncouth. These are what shape us, our lives lived is the proof. We can be more right than wrong. More just than judge. More godlike than unlike. Reflecting Sunlight in our darkest night.
    Providing refuge. Never more alive until we die within and begin again. A Human Ark Divine in our human spark.

    Steven Gooden

    Give up your guns
    The cops will protect your kids
    Cops: *
    Parents : why are you standing here letting school kids be murdered for 90 minutes
    While preventing me from getting to them

    Makes logical sense

  14. Jay Van on October 25, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    GUNS didn’t cause this, the child of an illegal immigrant family did!

  15. Juan Wiebe on October 25, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    The hate speech of democrats the angry on guns. But is not guns the problem its the people .

  16. Thanh ngo on October 25, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    He will be virtual so it doesn’t make any difference. He is now trying to play damage control. There should be a civil lawsuit.

  17. Test User on October 25, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    He will not attend in person but fully supports easy gun access for all, so that Texas can be a no restraint state where any 18+ can get a gun without being flagged/tracked. I wonder how many of these untracked guns become ghost guns that get to other states to cause more evil deeds. Devils advocates, Devils advocates.

  18. S Young on October 25, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    God protectus from These Trumper

  19. A. D. on October 25, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    Greg Abbott may have all the million of bloody money from the NRA…
    Parents have something worth more that Greg Abbott bloody money…. Something Greg Abbott can buy… That OUR VOTE.

    Let’s VOTE to remove Greg Abbott… Parents need someone that will fight to protect our children.

  20. Eigono Kyoushi on October 25, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    ‘livid’…that’s what conservative rightwingy dudes do….use lots of adjectives for their emotions cuz they’re so cold and dead inside they’ve lost the ability to physically express emotions….except when they’re yelling and beating their wives.

  21. Earl Smithers on October 25, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    All politicians that are not for gun control should be impeached now.

  22. 1p6t1gms on October 25, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    Whatever these cops are paid it is to much… you know damn well all of these law enforcement personal are pro 2nd amendment. NRA: ‘Only Thing That Stops A Bad Guy With A Gun Is A Good Guy With A Gun’ They are all FOS, just like their fake religious beliefs, disgusting.

  23. Kary Herndon on October 25, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    Hot doggies. The NRA ..and more …killer guns. (When is enough, enough? )? ✌️…I wonder. (More darned guns than citizens ..these tragic days. It’s just heartbreaking. )?Prayers ..are …what …we say when we can not go there from ❤️💙🇺🇸🦮🕊🏁🏴‍☠️ from beautiful…Southern Colorado.

    It’s Time The Government Give Free Mental Health Insurance To All & At Any Age.

  25. emil lion on October 25, 2022 at 9:31 pm

    Abbott’s brand is toast.

  26. Jacob Clark on October 25, 2022 at 9:31 pm

    Guns in hands of good people stop bad people with guns in there hands ! We have common sense gun laws , shall not be infringed that’s the law !

  28. Hector Lopez on October 25, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    Texas has got to get a new governor. We don’t want anymore of Abbott. He has done ,absolutely nothing about this gun issue.

  29. robtempe on October 25, 2022 at 9:39 pm

    The man is toast as governor and he knows it. All his and his party’s groveling will not help them come November unless they can figure out another way to kill off the rest of the hispanic voting block. It won’t be for not trying. Beto will be the next governor of Texas.

  30. Hfame Pham on October 25, 2022 at 9:39 pm

    Thanks God Biden did not joi NRA party if both parties join NRA this country go hell

  31. Hector Lopez on October 25, 2022 at 9:39 pm

    The governor didn’t attend the event because beto was correct of what he said, about Abbott.

    The Official Announcement of the Destroyer from Heaven’s Court!

    “The time has OFFICIALLY come O’ people of the Earth for your sentences, your pronounced JUDGMENT to be served both to the individuals, and to the whole people of the Earth. A TIME OF WEEPING, A TIME OF MOURNING!!!”

    “This is the OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT to your world that the DESTROYER by legal rights is here to strike with the arm of Judgment of the risen Lamb Jesus, and to do his bidding, his commands, which he has received from he who sits on the Throne, the ONLY true and living God, Jehovah, at this appointed time of this day and of this hour!”

    “The Destroyer is officially released to complete his task that lays ahead for your world! No longer shall he be partially contained, but is hereby released by the command of the Living God Jehovah.”

    “It begins at this releasing of this Heavenly official announcement! You were WARNED out of love of what was to come if evil people refused to repent! You are now once again warned out of love of what is to come upon your world, for he, the GREAT God Jehovah does nothing without giving word to his servants the prophets!”

    “Hear me now O’ people of the Earth, and hear me well. The striking of the Destroyer is the time of now! Those of his, of the risen Lamb who TRUST in the Lamb shall be safe in his covering of blood, for those commanded by Jehovah God, the ruler of all the Heavens and the Earth, to not be touched by the strikes of the Destroyer!"

    “This O’ people of the Earth is your official announcement from Heaven’s court for all things must be done in order by the legal system of Heaven set up by the GREAT God Jehovah himself, when he created the Heavens and the Earth by his commands and his son Jesus, the risen Lamb’s hands. This order cannot be changed! A TIME OF WEEPING! A TIME OF WAILING FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE Earth!”

  33. TiberiumAusten on October 25, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    I hate, HATE, this stupid stupid stupid "LOVE THE 2ND AMENDMENT" people. The constitution literally says "WELL REGULATED MILITIA". Let me repeat: "WELL REGULATED". The constitution’s makers specifically gave the right of states to organize citizens into militias. REGULATED MILITIAS WITH THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS. The 2nd Amendment is not and will never be a "I can own as many as and any kind of guns I want" law. It is not "sell guns freely to children" law. It’s literally designed to codify a decentralized army for what *was* a young and relatively defenseless nation. We are not that nation any more and if people want a law that says "unlimited guns for all" then you better ask your senators and congressmen for that because that is NOT what the 2nd Amendment is. W.E.L.L.R.E.G.U.L.A.T.E.D. I WANT REGULATION FOR GUNS PLEASE… and maybe a little healthcare like really.

  34. John Hmielewski on October 25, 2022 at 9:42 pm

    I think going to the NRA convention would have been career suicide.

    Oh please donnie just like all the rest vote all republicans out for the safety of all Americans spineless lot they are

  37. Manny on October 25, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    It’s time for a change 💯

  38. Live Strong on October 25, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    Mass shooting will continue happening in the US if they don’t control this challenge

    Greg avid is full B’s

  41. Liz Drouin on October 25, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    All the Prolife crowd is there…hypocritical

  42. Sexy sash2 on October 25, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    They want guns gone But they wont gove up drugs which are the real cause ?? .. america didnt have mass shootings in the 50s bc there were no drugs until the 60s during the hippie movent , then we started seeing mass shootings . This is a drug issue not a gun issue regardless of what pervy dems and liberals and thier drug addiction need to take away guns are saying #build the wall keep the drugs out !!!

  43. TRIDENTEIII on October 25, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    What a stupid story again from Donald Trump! Carry a secret weapon, a shooting James Bond ballpoint pen? A Colt 45 in the fly of your pants?! If you are attacked you are always too late because you never know when that attack will come! Is it today or in a month, no idea but you’re always late!

    In Europe no one carries a weapon, not in the house, not in the car, not anywhere! Only criminals have a weapon but they are in the minority! In the USA the chance of being killed is 300x more than in Europe! Luckily I don’t have any guns in the house or I might have killed my neighbors in anger!

    You are against arbortis that is murder but a little shooting around at a school or supermarket or a church that is normal?! Shame on you, you don’t need weapons at all for a safe country!

    For now I’m not going to the USA on vacation, I’m afraid I’ll come back in a coffin! It’s not Wilde Weste anymore, is it? *** NRA *** The Big Money Makers (For them self), shame you! † !!!

  44. KUNAL GHOSH on October 25, 2022 at 9:50 pm

    Most shameless governor ever. He should resign.

  45. Tejano J on October 25, 2022 at 9:52 pm

    If the TX GOP loosened gun laws, didn’t maintain the power grid, used tax dollars to send immigrants to DC, what else did they mess up – infrastructure, state pension fund?

  46. bellagirl girl on October 25, 2022 at 9:52 pm

    Yes, I watched some of the NRA convention. Seems as if G.O.P. now stands for Gun Owning Proselytizers, not the Grand Old Party anymore. They now have their EXCUSE for the shooting — police messed up…. it’s got nothing to do with the fact that a disgruntled person was able to arm himself with hand-held weapons of mass destruction.

  47. Carole Breedlove on October 25, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    Oh I’m sure he will sneak in someway.

  48. eric kim on October 25, 2022 at 9:54 pm

    Abbott`s spineless, half ass token jester what a joke

  49. e arthur on October 25, 2022 at 9:54 pm

    Governor,.. You should fire every law enforcement officers that stood outside the school for an hour or more and let this damn individual kill 19 kids…Dereliction of duty or just plain chicken shits..
