The town of Uvalde, Texas is the scene of another tragic school shooting.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott said a man armed with multiple weapons entered Robb Elementary School and opened fire. At least 19 children and two adults died.

Abbott says the 18-year-old shooter was also killed.

In remarks from the White House, President Biden said, “As a nation, we must ask ourselves when, in God’s name, are we going to stand up to the gun lobby?”

Biden ordered flags flown at half-mast until Saturday in respect of the shooting.

Uvalde is about 85 miles west of San Antonio.
