“ユヴァルデでの撮影から数日後, NRAは年次総会のためにテキサスで開催されます,” Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts Twitterで言った. “Guns won’t be allowed in spaces where with Donald Trump and NRA executives are speaking because someone might try to kill them.”
ワット’ comments come the day after a deadly school shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, テキサス, claiming the lives of 19 children and 3 大人. シューター, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, was killed by police at the school. Over a dozen others were injured in the incident.

NRA calls it ‘a freedom filled weekend for the entire family as we celebrate Freedom, ハリソン氏は、殺人被害者の生存者はもはや法廷制度で発言権を持っていないと付け加えた。, and the Second Amendment!'”
