Texas school shooting: Armed police respond to the scene in Uvalde

Piers Morgan reacted to the latest school shooting in the United States that left 21 dead.

The tragedy in Texas on Tuesday saw a gunman open fire near Robb Elementary School before running inside the building and continuing to shoot.

Governor Greg Abbott initially said 14 students and one teacher had died and more than a dozen were injured in the horrific incident, but police have updated the total number of increases since.

And Piers Morgan, who is often critical of gun culture in the US, took to Twitter after the incident to share his frustration.

The presenter, 56, was one of many public figures to condemn the act and first wrote when the news broke: “NEWS: 14 students and one teacher at a primary school in Uvalde , Texas was shot and killed by an 18-year-old student – the old gunman.

“Absolutely horrible. I don’t know what else to say about America’s endless gun carnage – it’s the Americans to deal with but where’s the will?”

He continued shortly afterwards and said, “Nothing was done after Sandy Hook to prevent another such school massacre from happening again. Now it has happened again.

“Students being slaughtered in the classroom is not a political issue. Please, America, stop partisan betrayal and do something about it.”

He retweeted the views of several others, including tennis star Andy Murray, who was a student at Dunblane Primary School, Stirling, when gunman Thomas Hamilton opened fire on a gym class that day. March 13, 1996.

The sportsman called the events in Texas “crazy,” to which Piers replied: “As you know better than most. I don’t understand the lack of will to at least try to prevent it from happening.”

The TalkTV host went on to share a tweet from Amanda Gorment to which he agreed.

It read: “Monsters must kill children. But watching monsters kill children over and over and do nothing is not just madness – it is inhumane.”

The shooting was also carried out by US President Joe Biden, who mourned the dead.

He said: “As a nation, we have to ask ourselves: ‘When in the name of God will we stand up in the gun arena? When in the name of God do we do what we know in our guts? need to do?”

Although he did not specifically outline the steps the White House intends to take, he did signal that there will be a focus on offensive weapons.

He added: “If an 18-year-old can walk into a gun store and buy two assault weapons, it’s a mistake.

“In the name of God, what do you need an offensive weapon for but to kill someone? Deer doesn’t run through forests in a kevlar coat, for God’s sake. It’s just sick.”
