The Uvalde Tragedy

The mass school shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas has gripped us all. We mourn with those who lost family and friends. Even those who managed to escape with their lives will be scarred by the evil.

Chelsea and I present the timeline of the tragedy. We do our best to evaluate the reported police response with fairness as information is still coming out. Of note, especially, is the mom who ran in and brought her two children out to safety.

Finally, we address the politics that unfortunately happen when depraved humans kill others with guns.
