California Democrat Eric Swalwell again brought his young child into his response to the tragic mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, on Tuesday.
“My little boy just asked ‘did the bad guy from the grocery store come back? Is he going to come to our house?’” he tweeted. “*Now the MAGA-Republicans will mock my son or say I’m making this up as they did when he asked about Buffalo. But these are the questions parents are fielding tonight.”
Swalwell failed to acknowledge the one thing that stopped the shooter, however.
Quick question: What is the ONE thing that stopped this shooter before he did MORE damage?… It was a good guy with a gun. you want to limit that, your party Defunded police and now want to disarm law abiding citizens… No https://t.co/BtbMCBexiO

Many users also wanted to know why he would allow his young child to watch news about such tragic events to begin with, assuming the child did say that, which many also express doubts about.
If you aren't making it up you should be ashamed of yourself for deliberately exposing him to things that he is far too young to process or understand and that could traumatize him for life. https://t.co/LccpYcG9cJ
