Uvalde School Children Called 911 Begging For Help During Massacre
Don Lemon Tonight
May 28, 2022

A Texas official makes a stunning admission: ‘It was the wrong decision’ not to breach the classroom at Robb Elementary. CNN learns children called 911 begging for help as up to 19 officers stood in the hallway as the horror unfolded. Jennifer Gaitan is the mother of a surviving student. She joins to speak out about the law enforcement response and how she pleaded with police to act while the 18 year old gunman was inside the school.

The NRA holds its annual convention in Texas just days after the Uvalde massacre, where Trump and other Republicans dismiss gun reforms. Plus, polls show 89% of Americans support background checks prior to gun ownership and research on mental health suggests people should not have access to a gun until they're 25 years old. Is it time to set new age rules for buying guns?
