TEXAS SENATOR ABBOTT REDUCED GUN RESTRICTIONS ONE DAY AFTER A 17-MONTH-OLD GIRL GOT SHOT

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott defended new gun laws that ease restrictions on gun owners in that state Sunday, hours after the laws went into effect and hours after a gunman shot at least 21 people, killing seven, in and around Odessa, Texas.

The new laws loosen restrictions on gun ownership and use in schools, foster homes, apartment buildings, and houses of worship. Proponents of the laws argue that they will offer people the opportunity to defend themselves from threats, while critics say expanding gun access makes people less safe.

Yet Abott delivered a ‘teary-eyed’ press conference acting as though he was so horrified by the latest Texas gun massacre. It’s people like this jerk who are the problem, so he can just wipe away his fake tears and resign right now.
