A lot of liberals are giving Rep. Ruben Gallego a pat on the back and saying “We need more of this.” After the school shooting that killed 14 children and a teacher in Texas, Sen. Ted Cruz told reporters that experience shows the best way to keep kids safe in schools is to have armed law enforcement on the campus (unless they’re like the law enforcement in Parkland, Florida).
Cruz to reporters: There’s no doubt we need to do more to keep children in school safe. We know from past experience that the most effective tool for keeping kids safe is armed law enforcement on the campus. pic.twitter.com/RDm1yWfX7q

We actually have the shooter’s ID, but there are no political points to be scored for blaming him. Gallego says Cruz is the baby killer:
Just to be clear fuck you @tedcruz you fucking baby killer.

Rep. Gallego needs to be censured for this. Congress has rules. https://t.co/4QlvElRLdm

Why did you do nothing to stop it?
You are a sitting Democratic representative.
Your party is in power.
Why did you let this happen? https://t.co/LEHOgJVGi0

This lunatic is a member of Congress that supports abortion until birth, which has resulted in the killing of millions of children.
Meanwhile, Ted Cruz is both anti-killing children in schools and in the womb. https://t.co/UWOSLMz8tI

Not like such rhetoric leads to congressional Republicans nearly being murdered or anything. https://t.co/XpEBicxGrt

Sad to watch someone
With an actual policy position
At someone for supporting
An enumerated right in the Constitution https://t.co/R1pbnW9BZH

Gallego’s followers are all saying this is the kind of “fire” the Democratic Party needs right now.
Gov. Gavin Newsom wastes no time blaming the GOP after mass shooting at Texas elementary school https://t.co/ilb1tmfUap
