As of this morning, we know that 21 people — 19 children and 2 adults — were killed Tuesday in the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, making it one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history and all the more horrific because so many of the victims were just starting their lives.

This latest shooting has raised new questions about Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R), who is facing an uncertain bid for reelection in November, when he will likely face Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke.

Specifically, Abbott is being haunted by a tweet he sent in 2015 in which he urged Texans to buy more firearms so they wouldn’t be lagging behind the state of California:

Abbott has yet to address the tweet in light of the horror which transpired in the Lone Star State yesterday, but social media users had some responses to his ghoulish encouragement to Texans.
