The cowardice, ineptitude, and potential corruption exhibited by the agents of the state in Uvalde, Texas is so embarrassing and damning that the Uvalde PD have lawyered up in an attempt to keep the peasants from finding out just how bad the real story of their failure is. 

During our Duracoat Finished Firearm segment, Professor Paul will consider garage sale guns, the good, the bad, and the ugly. For our Brownells Bullet Points, we talk about in stock items that you might want to pick up before they are gone. 

Also, does your granny have a gat? A 90 year old woman in Tennessee was attacked by a bear while she sat on her front porch. Is there a good solution for arming our grandmas? We will consider that topic during our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters.

Some of the records relating to the Robb Elementary School shooting could be “highly embarrassing,” involve “emotional/mental distress,” and are “not of legitimate concern to the public,” the lawyers argued.

The City of Uvalde and its police department are working with a private law firm to prevent the release of nearly any record related to the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in which 19 children and two teachers died, according to a letter obtained by Motherboard in response to a series of public information requests we made. The public records Uvalde is trying to suppress include body camera footage, photos, 911 calls, emails, text messages, criminal records, and more.

[Uvalde PD] Law enforcement officials reportedly never tried to open the door at a Texas elementary school last month where a shooter murdered 19 children.

“Surveillance footage shows that police never tried to open a door to two classrooms at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde in the 77 minutes between the time a gunman entered the rooms and massacred 21 people and officers finally breached the door and killed him,” the San Antonio Express-News reported, noting that the information came from a law enforcement official who was involved in investigating law enforcement’s response to the tragedy. “Investigators believe the 18-year-old gunman who killed 19 children and two teachers at the school on May 24 could not have locked the door to the connected classrooms from the inside.”
