Trump insists on arming citizens to fight “evil” after massacre in Texas


Former US President Donald Trump on Friday rejected stricter controls to access the Firearms behind the Texas school massacre and said that decent citizens should be able to arm themselves to defend themselves against “evil”.

“The existence of evil in our world is no reason to disarm law-abiding citizens,” Trump told members of the National Rifle Association (NRA). “The existence of evil is one of the best reasons to arm law-abiding citizens.

Trump’s comments came during an event by the NRA, which is holding its convention in Houston, three days after 19 children and two teachers were shot to death at a Texas schoolreigniting the debate on gun control in the United States.

“The various gun control policies promoted on the left they would not have done anything to prevent the horror that occurred. Absolutely nothing,” he said.

Salvador Ramos, of 18 years, had legally acquired the AR-15 rifle that he used to commit the massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday.

Trump read out the names of the 19 children, whom he described as the victims of a “lunatic” out of control, before suggesting that efforts to impose controls stricter access to weapons were “grotesque”.

“We must all come together, Republicans and Democrats, in every state and at every level of government, to finally strengthen our schools and protect our children… What we need now is a top-to-bottom safety review of schools across the country.”

Several speakers who were scheduled to attend the NRA event, including the governor of Texas, Republican Greg Abbott, withdrew from participating after the massacre.

President Joe Biden, who advocates for greater controls on firearms, se will appear in Uvalde on Sunday with his wife Jill to “condole with the community“, White House officials said.

The NRA is the most influential gun advocacy organization in the country and lobbies in defense of the second amendment to the constitution, that since 1791 guarantees the right to own arms in the United States.
