Texas Teachers Show Up At Ted Cruz’s Office Protesting Gun Policies


Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) could not resist speaking out after the Uvalde elementary school shooting. With 19 ten-year-olds and two teachers lying dead among the wash of blood, the senator was not known for his sensitivity.

So outside of his office located in Austin other teachers, school employees, and their union representatives protested. And as they marched, they chanted “shame on you.” Others claimed “Here to teach. Not to police,” according to The San Antonio Express-News.

Instead, the teachers called for more restrictive gun regulation, more secure classrooms, and the condemnation of Cruz and others like him with their wild, completely unreasonable ideas.

Texas chapter president of the American Federation of Teachers Zeph Capo said:

‘Educators are here to teach, not to police.’

Yet Cruz had nothing to say about gun regulation when he spoke before the National Rifle Association (NRA) Conference held days after the massacre and just hours away from Uvalde in Houston:

‘The elites who dominate our culture, tell us that firearms lie at the root of the problem. It’s a lot easier to moralize about guns and to shriek about those you disagree with politically, but it’s never been about guns.’

The teachers fought back:

According to Cruz, anyone looking to increase restrictions on guns was trying to “disarm America.”
