Beto O'Rourke Confronts , TX Governor Greg Abbott , During Press Conference on Uvalde.
The confrontation occurred on May 25, one day after the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, TX.
O'Rourke approached the stage and challenged Gov.
Greg Abbott's narrative on the violence.
The time to stop the next shooting is right now and you are doing nothing.
You said this is not predictable.
This is totally predictable, Beto O'Rourke, via CNN.
This is on you, until you choose to do something different, Beto O'Rourke, via CNN.
This will continue to happen.
Somebody needs to stand up for the children of this state or they will continue to be killed, just like they were killed in Uvalde yesterday, Beto O'Rourke, via CNN.
Speaking to reporters after he was escorted out of the auditorium, O'Rourke continued to attack Abbott's stance.
Five of the worst mass [shootings] in U.S. history, right here in this state in the last five years.
He was governor for every single one of them, Beto O'Rourke, via CNN.
Abbott referenced violence in other parts of the country as proof that gun laws are ineffective.
People who think maybe we can implement tough gun laws and we can solve it — Chicago, New York and L.A.
Disprove that thesis, TX Gov.
Greg Abbott, via CNN.
Gun laws were a focus for O'Rourke during his attempt to clinch the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.
Hell yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.
We're not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore, Beto O'Rourke, 2020 Democratic Debate, via CNN.
As the Democratic candidate for TX governor, O'Rourke will face Abbott in the upcoming election.
A campaign email to his supporters stated O'Rourke's position on Abbott's record concerning TX gun laws.
These massacres are [...] totally predictable, direct consequences of the choices made by Greg Abbott and the majority of those in the Texas legislature, Beto O'Rourke, via CNN
