The Uvalde School Shooting and Why the World Can’t Help


Senator Tony Gonzales of Texas has confirmed that Ramos did have a juvenile police record and that he even admitted in police interviews in 2018 that he and another boy were intending to shoot up a school, so he should have been put on the list of people banned from purchasing a weapon. The Daily Mail reported it:

Tony Gonzales said on Friday that Salvador Ramos was arrested four years ago when he was a juvenile. He claimed the then 14-year-old told people: “When I’m a senior in 2022, I am going to shoot up a school”

This means Uvalde police were complicit in failing to stop Ramos from obtaining deadly weapons.
