“The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” So former US President Donald Trump spoke at the Houston convention of the National Rifle Association, a group that defends the right to guns, suggesting to arm teachers in order to protect schools. “The existence of evil is one of the best reasons for arming law-abiding citizens,” Trump said, calling “a savage and barbaric atrocity” the massacre in the primary school in the city of Uvalde, Texas, where an 18-year-old claimed the lives of 19 children and two teachers. “The terrible murder of 19 innocent children and two teachers, as well as the wounding of many others, is a savage and barbaric atrocity that shocks the conscience of every American, it’s horrifying,” Trump said. Refusing to link the origin of the massacre to the ease with which the killer was able to find the rifle used, the former American president criticized “the now familiar parade of cynical politicians trying to use the tears of sobbing families to increase their own power and take away our constitutional rights “and the” grotesque effort by some in our society to use the suffering of others to advance their own political agenda. “Quoting his successor, Trump said that” when Joe Biden he blamed the arms lobby, he was talking about Americans like you. This rhetoric is highly divisive and dangerous and, above all, it is wrong and has no place in our politics. ” Trump said it should be easier to confine “violent and mentally deranged” people to institutions, even though Salvador Ramos had no criminal or mental history.
