Texas Rep Jasmine Crockett blamed Republicans for shooting: 'The blood of these children' is on their hands
Rep. Jasmine Crockett, D-Texas, attacked Texas Republicans as being responsible for the deadly school shooting in Uvalde that killed 19 children and two adults in May, saying they had blood on their hands.
While appearing on MSNBC’s "The ReidOut" on Wednesday, Crockett condemned her state’s governor and other Texas Republicans as culpable for refusing to pass gun control.
"Listen, I think where you’re going wrong is you’re looking for some logic to come up out of Greg Abbott. We have seen over and over and over, I mean in, your intro, what did you talk about? You talked about the things that they called special sessions," Crockett said.
"You talked about their priorities, and listen, let me be clear. I don’t want anybody to have any questions. The blood of these children is on the hands of the Republicans in the state of Texas period. No question about it because let’s talk about who has been in control in the state of Texas for at least the last 30 years. It’s been Republicans and their failed policies," she added.
