HOUSTON, Texas – The 2022 National Rifle Association convention kicked off on Friday in Texas and some members of the gun advocacy group who attended the event expressed their opposition to calls for gun control while discussing ways to move forward.
The annual convention came on the heels of the Robb Elementary School shooting in Uvalde, Texas, on Tuesday which left 19 children and two adults dead.
The article goes on to state the following:
The convention, held at the George R. Brown Convention Center amid nearby protests from gun-control advocates, hosted thousands of individuals who displayed fierce support for the preservation of the Second Amendment and gun rights.
A gentleman, who chose to give only his first name of “Franklin”, traveled over ten hours from Georgia to attend the NRA convention and show his support. He said, “What happened to those kids is awful, it’s scary, it’s sad, I send prayers to those families today and for the rest of my days.”
However, he went on to say, “While I grieve with those families and the others who have lost children in school shootings, we have to have an honest conversation, the NRA did not do this. No one but the shooter did this. We cannot let those calling for restrictions on guns get in the way of fixing this crisis. We gotta do what is necessary to protect these schools, whether it be improving security in schools, getting armed officers to work at schools, or making schools one-way entry zones.”
A couple from Texas, Mark and Carol McElroy, was asked about school shootings and what could have been done moving forward to deter them in relation to gun violence. Mr. McElroy said, “There’s a big hole in the school system, there’s a mental health problem somewhere.”
“The country is certainly divided, obviously, there’s no question about it,” he added. “We both would like to see the states implement a background check for juveniles.”
His wife said she believed teachers should be armed and taught gun safety and how to handle them.
