Death Toll from Texas Elementary School Shooting Rises to 21, Biden Addresses the Nation

There are now 21 people dead from the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Ulvade, Texas.

The most recent report from the Associated Press shows 19 children and 2 adults were killed in the attack. The shooter, an 18-year old believed to have been a student at the high school, is also dead. He was reportedly shot by police.

President Biden addressed the nation on Tuesday and said, “I’d hoped when I became president that I would not have to do this again. Uvalde, Texas. An elementary school. Beautiful, innocent, second, third and fourth graders.”

He continued by saying, “As a nation, we have to ask when in God’s name are we gonna stand up to the gun lobby. When in God’s name are we do what we all know in our gut needs to be done.”

President Biden ended his address by adding, “May God bless the loss of innocent life this sad day and may the lord be near the broken-hearted and save those crushed in spirit, because they’re going to need a lot of help and a lot of our prayers. God love you.”
