'Come and Get It': Texas Congressman Releases Pro-Gun Video Following Uvalde Shooting Report

Texas congressman Ronny Jackson posted a pro-gun video, in which he featured, on Sunday, July 17, hours after the Texas House committee investigating the Uvalde school shooting released a report on the police response.

In Jackson’s video, the congressman from Texas’ 13 congressional district can be seen holding two AR-style rifles as he delivers his “message for the Biden Administration.”

“If you’re thinking about taking our ARs, you can start here in Texas,” Jackson says. “On behalf of all the law-abiding gun owners in the state of Texas, I just want to say, come and get it.”

In its report , the Investigative Committee on the Robb Elementary Shooting said it “found systemic failures and egregiously poor decision making.”

Community members responded angrily to the committee’s findings during a media address in Uvalde, with some calling the police “cowards”. Credit: Ronny Jackson via Storyful
