Uvalde school shooting

Abbott says raising the age to buy an assault-style rifle is “unconstitutional” based on recent court rulings

The gunman in Uvalde bought two AR-15-style rifles days after he turned 18, the legal purchasing age in Texas, and used the weapons to kill 19 students and two teachers at Robb Elementary.

Gov. Greg Abbott speaks at a presser at Uvalde High School on May 27, 2022.
