Today - May 24, 2024 - is the second anniversary of the horrific mass shooting incident at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, an instance of mass murder shocking both in its scale, and in the still-unbelievable display of incompetence that marked the botched response of multiple law enforcement agencies that day. Over the two years since, the Republican-dominated government of Texas has not only done nothing to address gun violence - they've gone out of their way to accelerate the proliferation of firearms across our state. As we mark this solemn occasion, we've invited back to the pod San Antonio State Senator Roland Gutierrez - a singular example of a lawmaker who has stood steadfastly by his constituents in their hour of need - to review his experiences with the families left behind, to tell us their stories, and to help us try to make even the slightest bit of sense of an utterly senseless tragedy.
