Texas attorney general claims gun control laws ‘wouldn’t have stopped’ shooting after calling to arm teachers

"Ken Paxton has again rubbished calls for tighter gun control laws after 19 children and two adults were killed at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.
Speaking with Newsmax on Wednesday, the Texas attorney general claimed gun control laws would not have stopped 18-year-old Salvador Ramos from shooting the 21 victims dead.
“Having a gun law that told him not to have a gun I don’t think would’ve stopped any of this,” said the Republican, who argued that the United States “already have laws against killing people”.
“So I think that’s not the right focus,” he continued, claiming that Democrats, gun control campaigners and shooting victim’s families “obviously have a political agenda” to introduce tougher laws on owning weapons.
On Tuesday, Mr Paxton also called for teachers to be armed after police killed Ramos, the shooter, who allegedly barricaded himself inside a fourth grade classroom at Robb Elementary School with a AR-style rifle.
“First reponders typically can’t get there in time to prevent a shooting,” Mr Paxton said on Newsmax. “It’s just not possible unless you have a police on every campus, which for a lot of these schools is almost impossible.”
Mr Paxton also proposed having “one point of entry” at schools to make it more difficult for shooters to enter a school, as well as arming teachers and “potentially other administrators”."
