Braddock Discusses Governor Abbott’s Response to Recent Shootings
Friday on KFYO Mornings with Dave King and Matt Martin, Editor of the Quorum Report Scott Braddock joined Dave and Matt to talk about Greg Abbott and gun control, the possibility of red flag laws in Texas, gun legislation, several GOP congressman from Texas not running for reelection, Alyssa Milano and Ted Cruz meeting, and more.
Many people in the state of Texas were waiting to see what Governor Abbott would do after the Midland-Odessa shooting, which was preceded by the El Paso shooting, but as Braddock explained, there was only so much that Abbott could even do. Governor Abbott made 8 executive orders yesterday, none of which technically mentioned guns, but were in response to the two shootings. Scott explained that these executive orders were basically additions to the "If you see something, say something" efforts that Abbott had previously made.
Braddock went on to say that Texas citizens were wondering if Abbott would support a red flag law, but that nothing much could be done about gun control in Texas unless it was done legislatively. However, Braddock does believe that we are starting to hear some change, saying, "I think it's fair to say, for the first time in my career in covering politics in Texas, I think the democrats do have some leverage in this issue." He went on to say that there is a lot of pressure after the shootings, and that republican support could be softening.
