Texas Elementary School Shooting Suspect Salvador Ramos Allegedly Purchased Two Assault Rifles Legally


    Numerous reports state that Robb Elementary School shooting suspect Salvador Ramos purchased two rifles legally before his Tuesday rampage. 

    Texas state Senator Roland Gutierrez told CNN that Ramos “purchased two assault rifles on his 18th birthday.”

    The Los Angeles Times legal affairs columnist, Harry Litman, pointed out, “[The] shooter bought the two assault rifles from a FFL on his recent 18th birthday.”

    The Houston Chronicle observed that the Robb Elementary School shooting suspect “legally purchased two rifles in the days following his 18th birthday, authorities said.” The Chronicle added, “Officials said they recovered the two AR-15 style rifles from the scene at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde.”

    Governor Greg Abbott (R) gave an early afternoon press conference on Tuesday during which he stated that Ramos “entered into the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde with a handgun, and he may have also had a rifle.”

    A May 16, 2022, article in The New York Times posed the question, “What Do Most Mass Shooters Have in Common?” The NYT responded to its own question by explaining that the most prevalent theme among mass shooters is that “they bought their guns legally.”
