This year in Texas, there have been several deadly shootings, including the shooting at a Walmart in El Paso in August, which killed 22 people, as well as shooting in Odessa-Midland in the same month that killed 7 people. In 2017, the gunman opened fire at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland springs, Texas, killing 26 people and injuring more than 20 people.

Shooting in Church caused Texas Republicans to advocate for changes in state law, allowing discreetly carry firearms in places of worship when it was revealed that the gunman fatally shot just 6 seconds after opening fire, says Fox News.

Britt Farmer, senior Minister of the Church, said, “Dallas Morning News” that the Church has lost two “great men today, but could be a lot worse, and I’m grateful that our government has provided us with the opportunity to defend themselves.”

Republican Governor Greg Abbott signed in June, eight draft laws on weapons, including a law allowing the owners of legal weapons to bring it secretly to places of worship.

“We have repeatedly seen that there is no such thing as a zone free from weapons — then said state Senator Donna Campbell, co-author of the bill. — Those who have evil intentions will be to break the law and commit their heinous actions, no matter what. It makes no sense to disarm the good guys and leave defenseless the law-abiding citizens where violent criminals are breaking the law, causing great harm”.

Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick at a press conference after the shooting, praised the two volunteer guards and expressed appreciation for changes in state law.

“Rapid response is most important, he said. — Shooting responded civil. The officers were on the scene in less than a minute — and by the time shooting ended. This happens in more than 50% of the shootings — the shooting ends before the police, no matter how hard they tried”.

Democrat Julian Castro pointed to the incident as a result of weak laws on the illegal use of firearms and poor management.

“We can take steps to reduce these horrendous attacks right now — we just need our elected leaders had the courage to act,” he wrote on Twitter.

Beto O’rourke, a former presidential candidate from the Democratic party, who opposed violence with weapons in the past, tweeted that he was saddened by the incident, and added: “it is Clear that what we do in Texas what we do in this country, does not work when it comes to weapons.”
