Ted Cruz confronted at restaurant over gun control following Texas school shooting

1 min read

Republican Senator Ted Cruz was confronted by a man Friday at a Houston ​restaurant after Tuesday’s fatal shooting of 19 pupils and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas, by an 18-year-old gunman equipped with an AR-15 style semiautomatic rifle.

The man,​ Benjamin Hernandez, questioned Cruz’s stance on gun rights and his inaction on gun control and told him the children’s blood is on his hands.

The confrontation lasted for less than five minutes and ended with bodyguards pulling Hernandez outside the restaurant.

In a speech to the National Rifle Association, Cruz said communities needed weapons to stay safe. “Taking away guns will not make them safer.”

Governor Gregg Abbott, a Republican and staunch gun-rights proponent who addressed the meeting in a pre-recorded video, seized on apparent police lapses in Uvalde, telling a news conference later he was misled and “livid about what happened.”
