The president of United States, Joe Biden announced this Monday the sending of 1.5 million dollars to the Uvalde school districtfollowing the shooting by an 18-year-old that left 19 children and two teachers dead at Robb Elementary School.
“The United States Department of Education has expanded the Biden Administration’s whole-of-government response to the tragic mass shooting at Robb Elementary School by disbursing a $1.5 million grant from the School Emergency Response project to the Violence (SERV) to the Uvalde Independent School District”wields a statement from the White House.
Thus, he explained that the funds “They can be used for activities that help restore the safety of district students, teachers, staff and families, and that address the specific needs of those directly affected by the shooting.”
Senators from the Republican Party and the Democratic Party could imminently present a proposal for a joint bill to increase, even minimally, gun control in the United States.
The agreement would include a series of principles, without a formal text closed yet, so the initiative would have a long legislative history. Even so, it would be a great advance given the division that this issue provokes despite recent attacks such as the one at the school in Uvalde, Texas, in which a young man killed 19 children and two teachers.
“The assailant shot and killed, in a horrific and incomprehensible way, 14 students and a teacher”Texas Governor Greg Abbott said ruefully about the latest shooting at an elementary school in the United States.
The shooter was just 18 years old and was identified as Salvador Ramosand is believed to have been shot by police. It is also known that he was a member of the community and that he entered the school with a pistol, and possibly a rifle, and opened fire.
The school was attended by children in the second, third and fourth grades of primary school.. This Friday the students began their summer vacation.
While the details of the case and the motivations of the young man are pieced together, The country processes the news of a new school shooting that adds to a long list of episodes that involve children and that find no possible explanation.
