Trump asks to prioritize increasing security in schools over sending military aid to Ukraine

Days after the massacre at the Uvalde elementary school in Texas, in which 19 people lost their lives, two teachers and several children, the National Rifle Association held its annual convention in Houston, in the same state where the tragedy. He did it during the protests against easy access to weapons in the United States -the author of the shooting, Salvador Ramos, bought his legally, shortly after turning 18-, and in a climate of pain, because the Police He has admitted that he made mistakes and did not know how to reduce the assault in time.

Contrary to what is demanded by part of society and the Democratic Party -that is, to complicate the possibility of buying weapons-, the National Rifle Association and the Republican Party defend the right of citizens to bear arms and consider that their use by the right people is what can prevent new mass shootings from taking place in schools.

Their proposals are the following:

"The existence of evil is one of the best reasons to arm law-abiding citizens," former President Donald Trump said yesterday during his speech at the Houston convention. “What stops the bad guys with guns are the good guys with guns,” Republican Senator Ted Cruz said at the same event.

The Republicans, as Trump explained yesterday, are also committed to increasing security measures in schools, through single entry points, including surveillance; arming teachers, so they can defend themselves against possible attacks; and improve psychological assistance to young people, so that mental discomfort does not end up leading to violent or aggressive behavior. "Whenever a disturbed or insane person commits such a horrible crime, there is always a grotesque effort by some in our society to use the suffering of others to further their own extreme political agenda," the former president noted.

After laying out his proposals, Trump suggested that one of the best ways to finance these new security measures in schools is to earmark money for them instead of prioritizing sending military aid to Ukraine. "Before we build nation states in the rest of the world, we should be building safe schools for our own children in our own nation," he said. "Whatever our differences on other issues, what the hell is stopping Democrats from immediately passing measures to increase school safety?"
