O’Rourke confronted a heckler at a campaign event Wednesday who laughed while he was talking about the Uvalde school shooting, telling the person, “It may be funny to you, mother—-er, but it is not funny to me.”

Uvalde is remembered by Texans as a North Carolina district arms its schools

According to Chron, on August 14, the Houston Astros will welcome the community of Uvalde to Minute Maid Park for “Uvalde Strong Day,” according to a recent press release.

When the school year begins in Madison County, North Carolina, on August 22, it will come with what the county sheriff says will have enhanced safety features – AR-15 rifles. In an interview with The Asheville Citizen-Times, Sheriff Buddy Harwood said that the new measure for this school year, in collaborating with Madison County Schools, comes in the wake of the Uvalde school shooting.

Each of the six schools in the district, including three elementary schools, will have an AR-15, the sheriff said. The guns will be handled by school resource officers, who have been undergoing training at Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College, per CBS News.

As rampant gun violence in America continues without a federal solution to stem the deadly tide, states, cities, and school boards have been left to create their own responses to the ubiquitous threat to everyday life in the US.

Beto O’Rourke wants change as Republicans want prayer.

In response to recent mass shootings, several conservative politicians have made comments insinuating that God is the only gun reform we need.

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise and Representative Louie Gohmert from Texas believe that had everyone just prayed more, maybe 19 students and two teachers wouldn’t have been massacred in Uvalde last month.

While Kendrick Lamar reminded us all that everybody grieves different, heckling a politician while discussing dead children speaks to the absent moral compass present in far too many of the 45th President’s racist, illogical and ill-informed supporters.
