Uvalde school shooting

Sen. Roland Gutierrez, who represents Uvalde, says it’s a “slap in the face” to be left off committee responding to shooting

State Sen. Roland Gutierrez, D-San Antonio, whose district includes Uvalde, interrupted a news conference held by Texas Governor Greg Abbott at Uvalde High School, three days after a gunman killed nineteen children and two adults in a mass shooting at Robb Elementary School, on May 27, 2022.
