Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) spoke with Fox & Friends about what’s next for America in the wake of the horrible tragedy in Uvalde, Texas. Jackson says we need to focus on safety and repair the nation’s damaged culture by turning to God and family.
“We have shootings all the time and they’re all unfortunate,” Jackson says. “I wish none of them happened. But when you see something like this, it’s extra horrific. And I think that this will allow me to talk to my colleagues on the other side of the aisle and say, look, you know, I’m a staunch defender of the Second Amendment and I’m going to remain that way.”
“But what can we do?” Jackson continues. “What can we do to harden these places and to make schools safer? And what can we do to make sure that we’re providing the mental health resources that we need and making sure that we’re teaching our kids the right things and we’re preparing our kids for stuff like this. And like I said, I’m all about what can we do to repair the damage that’s been done to the culture of this country. I think we need to get God and family and community back into our lives in a big way. And there’s been a big push for a long time from some of those on the left and at the higher levels that are responsible for educating our kids on keeping that stuff out of the schools. And that’s the wrong answer. We need to encourage that within our schools.”
