Democratic gubernatorial candidate and former Congressman, Beto O’Rourke, showed up at Governor Abbott’s press conference and called the governor out for his inaction on curbing gun violence, ignoring sensible gun legislation, and expanding access to guns in Texas.
“You are doing nothing,” said O’Rourke, standing directly in front of Abbott and state and local officials. “You’re offering us nothing. You said this is not predictable. This is totally predictable.” He continued as he was whisked away by security: “This is on you until you choose to do something different! This will continue to happen. Somebody needs to stand up for the children of this state, or they will continue to be killed, just as they were in Uvalde yesterday.”
O’Rourke was shouted down by several of the officials on stage with one calling him a “sick son of a bitch” as he was escorted out by police.
