Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on Friday said he expects new laws to be enacted in response the shooting this week that killed 21 people at an elementary school.
“Do we expect any laws to come out of this devastating crime? The answer is yes. Absolutely yes,” Abbott said.
The article goes on to state the following:
When asked about calling a special session for the legislature in response to the shooting, he said “all options are on the table.”
Abbott said measures Texas could possibly see will be focused on mental health and school safety.
“You can expect robust discussion and my hope is laws passed that I will sign addressing health care in this state,” Abbott said. “There are an array of health issues that relate to those who commit gun crimes.”
“Anyone who suggests we should focus on background checks instead of mental health, I suggest to you it is mistaken,” Abbott said.
Abbott added that regarding rifles, “ever since Texas has been a state, an 18 year old has had the ability to buy a long gun, a rifle.”
“And since that time, it seems like it’s only been in the past decade or two we’ve had school shootings,” Abbott said. “For a century and a half, 18 year olds could buy rifles and we didn’t have school shootings but we do now. Maybe we’re focusing our attention on the wrong thing.”
