Former President Barack Obama responded after a gunman shot and killed more than a dozen children at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, saying that “it’s long past time for action” on gun violence.

In a series of tweets, Obama expressed both sadness and outrage. He put blame squarely on Republican lawmakers and the National Rifle Association, arguing that “our country is paralyzed — not by fear, but by a gun lobby and a political party that have shown no willingness to act in any way that might prevent these tragedies.”

  1. There has to be better security in the schools,churches and all public buildings. No guns should be sold without background check and being of age 21.
    These savage shootings will continue if these politicians don’t implicate stricker gun safety laws.
    Praying that God will send down a
    blessing and healing on America and
    the whole wide world.
    God Bless This World
