Trump calls for more guns in schools to combat shootings


The former president of USA, donald trumpaccused this Friday the democrats to “politicize” the shooting in the school of Uvalde, in Texaswhich killed 19 children and two teachers, and attacked their “grotesque efforts” to control the sale of weapons. “The policies of gun control driven by the left they would have done nothing to prevent the horror that took place. Absolutely nothing,” Trump said during the annual convention of the National Rifle Association (NRA) which is held in houston. On the other hand, he believed that the solution is to place metal detectors at the entrances to schools and build doors that can be locked from the inside to prevent “intruder access.”

The former president, who was applauded several times at the event, began his speech by lamenting the slaughterwhich he described as a “savage atrocity”, and read the name of the 21 victims with the sound of bells chiming in the background. Trump ignored the role of the guns in the shooting and placed all the blame on the mental health of the attacker, Salvador Ramos. “The monster that committed this crime is pure evil, pure cruelty, pure hate,” he said.

Defense to the National Rifle Association

The Republican made a strong statement in defense of the Second Amendment to the Constitutionwhich enshrines the right of Americans to own guns, and lambasted Democrats for “using the tears of families” to call for greater gun control.

“Whenever a disturbed or insane person commits such a horrible crime, there is always a grotesque effort by some to use the suffering to further their extremist political agenda,” he said.

Likewise, the former president criticized the “blaming” of the tragedy on the “wonderful NRA” and paraphrased a saying that “the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” “When President Joe Biden blamed the gun lobby he was talking about Americans like you, and I was suggesting that Republicans are okay with allowing these school shootings to happen,” he said of the president’s speech Tuesday after the massacre.
