I am devastated by the reports of a mass shooting in Bryan and the shooting of a DPS trooper in Iola. This is an ongoing situation and my office is working with Governor Abbott’s staff to offer state assistance to local law enforcement.

As usual thoughts and prayers but no action. Thoughts and prayers do nothing to stop the carnage.

We look to priests for thoughts and prayers...legislators are looked to for legislation...get to work and stop offering useless platitudes after every tragedy.

🙏🙏🙏

We need more than thoughts and prayers. We need commonsense gun laws.

Keep being devastated. They’ll keep happening. Thanks for nothing.

Please. You went right from this to posting about your valiant attempts to defend the gun industry and to protect our 2nd Amendment rights from nonexistent threats. Thoughts and prayers are utterly meaningless without substantive action.

I pay attention to actions not words.

Yet your answers the same everytime do nothing because nothings wrong...

But not devastated enough to do something about the problem of mass shootings. Your previous posts shows that you are actually part of this problem.

Fuck you. I know what you did. Stop letting gun manufacturers away with murder. Gun laws do not mean allowing more guns. We need less and regulations about who can have them. "Well regulated militia"

We have no inpatient mental health services in Bryan/College Station. In less than a month, two Bryan men with guns have made national news. Let's get a bill to provide mental health services so folks don't have to keep going to Austin for care. Let's provide conflict management and de-escalation training for our workplaces and schools.

Yet you have another post about the President coming for your guns. Stop being a coward and push for current loopholes and massive clips to be shut down.
