Texas School Shooting: A Republican Party leader in the United States has dismissed with a bizarre argument the demand for gun control rising after the deadly school shooting in Robb Elementary, Texas. Speaking on the shootings, he said, “The planes were not banned after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.” According to media reports, Lauren Boebert was speaking on Fox News’s Hannity Special.
According to the Daily Beast, Boebert said in Thursday’s broadcast, “When 9/11 happened, we didn’t ban planes. We secured the cockpit.” The Colorado representative, a staunch supporter of Firearms, said, “I want our schools to be safe. I want their kids to be safe and I want teachers who can protect themselves and their students. And you know what? We want.” Can achieve this without trying to disarm law-abiding citizens.”
Let us tell you that during the 2020 elections, Boebert strongly opposed the introduction of legislation for stricter gun control in America. According to the Daily Beast, she owns a restaurant where staff members openly keep firearms. Boebert is a United States politician, businessman, and gun rights activist. She is the US representative representing Colorado’s 3rd congressional district and is a member of the Republican Party.
Trump has also defended gun-rights lobbying groups
Boebert’s remarks came after former US President and Republican Party leader Donald Trump’s statement. Trump defended the National Rifle Association (NRA), a major gun-rights lobbying group, amid growing calls for gun reform.
Addressing the NRA’s annual meeting in Houston, he said, “Every time a disturbed or insane person commits such a heinous crime, the suffering of others is used by some in our society to advance their extreme political agenda. There’s always a weird effort to get used to.” He said that civilized Americans should be allowed the firearms they need to protect them from “evil”. On Tuesday, 19 children and two teachers were killed in a shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. The 18-year-old assailant was shot dead by the police.
