Elizabeth Warren’s Response To The Shooting In Texas Is Exactly What We Need To Hear

Published

Two terrorist attacks on the United States in the last week. Two. On Halloween, a man drove a truck into a bike lane near the World Trade Center in New York City, killing eight. Then, on Sunday, a gunman killed 26 people at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Of course, the condolences came out, but Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was unmoved.

Her tweet was aimed at Republicans, who continue to stick their heads in the sand and not take legislative action to curb gun violence. She then went off on the gun policies of the National Rifle Association (NRA).

Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott said this was his state’s “deadliest mass shooting.” Warren is one of the many Democratic voices calling for gun reform after this last mass shooting, including Senator Kamala Harris of California and Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut, whose state experienced its own horrific mass shooting in 2012 where 28 children and educators died at Sandy Hook Elementary. 

Gun control should have been off the table back earlier this past October, after 59 people were killed in Las Vegas while attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival on October 1st. Gun control should have been off the table back in 2016, after 49 people were killed in a night club in Orlando, Florida. Gun control should have been off the table back in 2015, after 14 people were killed in an office in San Bernardino, California. Gun control should have been off the table back in 2012, after 28 children were killed in a Connecticut elementary school. Gun control should have been off the table back in 2007, after 32 students and educators were killed in at Virginia Tech. Gun control should have been off the table back in 1999, when 15 people died at Columbine High School in Colorado. This list doesn’t even begin to cover the number of others that have died in other mass shootings that have happened in the United States in the last 10, 20, 50 years.

The problem is that there is a list. The problem is that there were two deadly mass shootings within a month this year. The problem is that there is no end in sight to this problem. Legislation needs to be made, altered, changed, created, to severely inhibit the chance of mass shootings in the United States, and until there can be conservative participation in this conversation, people will continue to die.
