Texas Chief Admits Cops Made ‘Wrong Decision' Not to Storm Uvalde Classroom
Yasin Ozturk/GettyTexas Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw admitted Friday that cops made the "wrong decision" by not immediately storming the classroom where Uvalde gunman Salvador Ramos was slaughtering children and teachers.

"From the benefit of hindsight, from where I'm sitting now, of course it was not the right decision," he said Friday. "It was the wrong decision, period, there's no excuse for that."

McCraw said officers treated the situation as if they were dealing with a "barricaded subject," giving them time to retrieve keys to the classroom and wait for further backup with tactical equipment. But in reality, it was still an active-shooter situation, with kids in the room who "clearly" remained at risk, he said.

Newsmax Hosts Gun Lobbyist Who—Of Course—Blames Uvalde Shooting on Gun Control
NewsmaxRight-wing cable channel Newsmax hosted a gun lobbyist on Thursday morning to not only rail against gun-safety measures in the wake of the horrific Uvalde school massacre, but to also specifically blame gun control for the mass shooting that left 19 children dead.

With Democrats, gun-safety advocates, and the vast majority of Americans now pushing for reform measures in the wake of this latest school shooting, conservatives have scrambled to come up with alternative solutions—no matter how bonkers—that never seem to include tightening gun laws. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and other Republicans, for instance, have actually floated door control to stop mass shootings.

Appearing Thursday morning on Newsmax's National Report, Gun Owners of America senior vice president Erich Pratt called it "absolutely disgusting" for President Joe Biden and other Democrats to be "pushing for gun control" and "raising money off dead children to advance their cause."

Progressive Champion Nina Turner Loses Ohio Primary Race After Dem Party "Set Out to Destroy" Her
The Trump-backed candidate J.D. Vance won the Ohio Republican Senate primary on Tuesday, while former Bernie Sanders presidential campaign co-chair Nina Turner lost the Democratic primary election for Ohio's 11th Congressional District after massive outside spending and attacks by super PACs. We speak with Andrew Perez of The Lever about what Ohio's elections mean for the future of the Democratic Party if it actively suppresses candidates like Turner who are critical of the establishment. Given that a majority Democratic Congress and sitting Democratic president have not delivered on campaign promises such as canceling student debt, protecting Roe v. Wade and passing Build Back Better, the party will be in jeopardy in the upcoming elections, says Perez.
