Texas Democrat governor candidate Beto O’Rourke interrupted a press conference with State politicians.
He was pressing them for action in light of Tuesday’s Texas school shooting.
O’Rourke said the response from Governor Greg Abbott and other Texas leaders was “totally predictable,” and did nothing to solve the problem easy access to guns that is plaguing communities across Texas and the nation.
Abbott ordered law enforcement officers to escort O’Rourke outside the building.
A gunman who massacred 19 children and two teachers at an elementary school in Texas had sent a warning on social media minutes before the attack. Salvador Ramos, 18, used an AR-15-style semi-automatic rifle at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde. He had legally bought two such rifles just days before the attack, soon after his 18th birthday.
