  1. #YESSSSS… But more is still #Owed 🤨…still waiting on #Cowards to be fired, some have been assigned to other schools to protect other children (BS) 😳.. ABSOLUTELY nothing can replace these lives…but let's start with theirs 🤨

  2. Not long before automakers are sued for car wrecks. Also any parts suppliers, windshields, head lights, light bulbs, tire makers, steel companies and plastic manufactures will be included also. Going too far. 😩😩😩

  3. what about the other 20 incidents in texas just the same as this one, they covered up, cause southern american british people.

  4. Gun manufacturers and 2nd amendment legislation are primarily responsible and they should take all the responsibility for the $27 BILLION Lawsuit— not the police. If it weren't for guns in the market then none of this moronic barbaric behavior would have occurred. You can't expect law enforcement to go against armory thousands Xs powerful and thousands Xs more ammo than them

  5. Full support! Sorry for your pain!

  6. allowing gun maker to be sued is a dangerous precedent Where does it end? Sue Toyota for drunk driving? Sue Jim Beam? Really
    What will suing do? Bring back the dead? Prevet future shooting? This only punishes the taxpayer because if they win taxpayers will make up the difference
    No amount of money could replace my children
    If you want change be police stop expecting others to fix your life
    Enforcing immigration would have prevented this crime
    Locking up the insane sooner and for life would have prevented this

    Not judging got us here

    blaming everything but the criminal got us here

    The race card got us here

    Taking shame away from being a bum got us here

    taking shame away from illegitimacy got us here

    not locking up the insane and drug addicted got us here

    not enforcing vagrancy and loitering laws got us here

    not enforcing immigration got us here

    thinking diversity is a strength got us here

    not encouraging faith patriotism and citizenship got us here

    equating the enforcement of laws with racism got us here

    not supporting the police got us here

    voting democrat got us here

  7. An yes. Sue the gunmaker. That will show them

  8. Uvalde was the 7th US school shooting this year. UVA was 41st.

    600 US mass shootings this year with 1 month to go.

    US Gun companies earn billions making fools of Americans.

    America's biggest enemy are Americans who shoot 44 Americans each day.

  9. Weird how she isn't suing the MURDERER. No money in that, I guess.

  10. Gun makers didn't pull the trigger. Good luck with that law suit. What this is is ambulance chasing lawyers trying to convince people that they're going to get paid. You can't sue another individuals for someone else's actions.

  11. It's about time I hope the lawsuit prevails

  12. 27B Still isn't enough for the negligence of the Uvalde Police department !

  13. Sue everyone but the shooter

  14. "demanding accountability". We the people will demand these parents to be held accountable for this. Always being bullied by kids, shooter kills bullies. We will continue to monitor these parents and follow up with them being accountable for their kids being bullies

  15. How do we get to the point where gun manufacturers are being sued??…. there's no other manufacturers that get sued for their products being misused.. none… if that's going to be the policy going forward… it must be applied equally…. was Ford Mercury sued when Daryl Brooks drove his red SUV through a crowd??…

  16. sorry for your loss… but you wont win these cases

  17. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👍🏻💯👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  18. The parents need to sue the State of Texas! Aint no way an 18 yr old with the nickname "school shooter" should be allowed to purchase an AR-15!!! At 18, you cant even drink legally in the state, but you can purchase an AR-15???

  19. Just like eminem said it's only sad when it happens to the upper class now you have something to fear

  20. 27 billion dollars? Thats like gdp of a small country

  21. Well you can't sue the gun maker because there is a law against that .
    Because it comes down to this… I a person driving a ( Ford , GM etc decides to drive into a crowd of people it's not the fault of the car manufacturer that someone misused their product

  22. Have the 300+ officers shared their condolences with the families or visited the graves? Have they visited them? Where are they now?

  23. Texas Border Patrol was all kinds of brave when they were assaulting unarmed civil rights protestors in Portland in the summer of 2020. But facing a gunslayer they created themselves, their courage suddenly vanished.

  24. Uvalde. The rotted soul of patriarchy on display. Men in complete moral collapse.

  25. The victims better win and get more

  26. The gunmaker ? Why ? Does that mean I get to go after Volkswagen for the drunk driver that hurt me in an accident ? Sweet pay up !!!!!! 🙄
