Yesterday, tragedy struck Robb Elementary School as nineteen schoolchildren and two teachers were shot and killed by 18-year-old Salvador Ramos.

Ramos shot his grandmother during an argument before going to the Elementary school and opening fire on a classroom full of children and their teachers.

Democratic politicians and media have already renewed a push for gun control,  with former Representative and Texas Gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke being one of the leading figures behind the push.

Today, Abbott hosted a press conference with other Texas officials to address the school shooting, and O’Rourke approached the stage and confronted him.

He called the shooting ‘totally predictable’ and said the shooting was the fault of Governor Greg Abbott.

Members of the panel and people who were on stage pushed back against O’Rourke, saying that he was “out of order.”  One law enforcement official seated next to Abbott said he was an “embarrassment,” while others said he needed to “get his a*s out of here” and called him a “sick son of a b*tch” for making the shooting a political issue.  Governor Abbott asked O’Rourke to leave the auditorium.

After facing ridicule, O’Rourke walked away from the stage before turning around and yelling more, pointing his finger at Governor Abbott.

This is a developing story.
