Teenage gunman kills 19 children in Texas elementary school

A gunman killed at least 19 children and two adults at a Texas elementary school on Tuesday, prompting angry President Joe Biden to speak out against the U.S. Gun invasion and swear allegiance to a national shooting rally.

The attack on Uvalde – a small community about an hour from the Mexican border – was the worst at school in the United States in years, and the most recent in a series of bloody violence across the United States.

“It ‘s time to turn this pain into action for every parent, for every citizen of this country,” Biden said, his voice echoing.

“The time has come for those who prevent, delay or restrict the rational use of guns – we need to let you know that we will not forget,” he said.

“As a nation, we must ask ourselves when, in the name of God, will we stand at the gunpoint? When, in the name of God, will we do what we all know in our gut needs to be done?”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott in an earlier press conference named the suspect Salvador Ramos, an 18-year-old local resident and U.S. citizen.

“He shot and killed, terribly and inexplicably,” Abbott said.

Texas Department of Homeland Security officials told CNN that the shooter allegedly shot his grandmother before heading to Robb Primary School around noon where he left his car and entered with a pistol and a gun, wearing a bulletproof vest.
