UTAH’S UVALDE — Further discussions on gun control and school safety have been sparked by the Monday shooting at a school in Nashville, Tennessee.
At The Covenant School, a Presbyterian elementary school for preschool through sixth-grade children, three 9-year-olds and three adults were shot and killed. Police shot and killed Audrey Hale, 28, the shooter, inside the school.
The massive contrast in police reaction times between the incident in Nashville and the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, on May 24, 2022, has been brought up by one Texas senator.
On that day in Texas, 19 pupils and 2 teachers died. In Nashville, responding officers neutralized the shooter in under 14 minutes. Police reportedly waited 77 minutes as shooter Salvador Ramos, 18, was still at large at the school, according to video surveillance footage from Robb.
Nashville PD neutralized the killer in 14 minutes. Then in less than 24 hrs later they release body cam footage.

Inquiries into the matter resulted in a few terminations, but some people feel that is insufficient.
The topic of legislative action continues to dominate conversations as long as there are still school shootings in the United States. This year, Gutierrez has introduced some laws that would work to safeguard the neighborhood from gun violence and hold the state responsible for its victims.
