President Biden suggests razing Texas elementary school where 21 people were killed, state senator says

President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden visit a memorial at Robb Elementary School to pay their respects to the victims of the mass shooting, Sunday, May 29, 2022, in Uvalde, Texas.

President Biden told a local lawmaker while visiting Uvalde on Sunday

that the federal government may provide resources to raze Robb Elementary School

where 19 children and two teachers were shot and killed earlier this week.

“He said, ‘I’m not going away. I’m going to bring you resources. We’re going to look to raze that school

build a new one,'” state Sen. Roland Gutierrez, who represents Uvalde, told KSAT.

“I can’t tell you how many little children that I’ve talked to that don’t want to go into that building. They’re just traumatized. They’re just destroyed.”

Other sites of mass shootings have been demolished in recent years.
