Congressman Torches Ted Cruz Over Response to School Shooting

Share

Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Az.) took aim at Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) over his response to the mass shooting at a Texas school.

Commenting on gun laws, Cruz said, “Inevitably when there’s a murderer of this kind, you see politicians try to politicize it, you see Democrats and a lot of folks in the media whose immediate solution is to try to restrict the constitutional rights of law abiding citizens.”

Gallego responded, “F**k you [Ted Cruz] you care about a fetus but you will let our children get slaughtered. Just get your ass to Cancun. You are useless.”

He later added, “Just to be clear f**k you [Ted Cruz] you f**king baby killer.”

Additionally, Cruz said, “We are seeing way too many of these horrific mass murders. And we need to devote far more law enforcement resources to stopping violent criminals preventing these kinds of absolute acts of evil.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) reacted to Cruz, saying, “Aren’t you slated to headline a speaking gig for the NRA in three days – in Houston, no less? You can do more than pray. Faith without works is dead.”

Do you agree with Gallego?

The Hill reported Cruz is scheduled to speak at the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) leadership summit in Houston along with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) and former President Trump.

“The National Rifle Association is pleased to announce that former President Donald Trump will headline a star-studded cast of political heavyweights at the NRA Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) Leadership Forum on Friday, May 27, at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston,” the organization said in a statement.

NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre explained, “It is truly an honor to have President Trump address NRA members for the sixth time at our 2022 NRA-ILA Leadership Forum in Houston.”

He added, “President Trump delivered on his promises by appointing judges who respect and value the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and in doing so helped ensure the freedom of generations of Americans. NRA members are excited to hear him speak and thank him for his support for our right to keep and bear arms.”

At least 19 children and two teachers were killed Tuesday when a gunman opened fire at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde.
