Ted Cruz confronted at restaurant following NRA speech
Sen. Ted Cruz was challenged by an angry citizen in a Houston-area restaurant Friday after speaking at the National Rifle Association convention three days after 21 people were killed in a Texas elementary school.
The Indivisible Houston group has posted video of a constituent posing for a photo with Cruz and then engaging him in what appears to be a one-sided conversation. After Tuesday’s shooting in Uvalde, Texas, a man approached Senator Ted Cruz and asked why he would speak at a gun-related convention in the wake of the tragedy.
An enthusiastic activist asked Cruz about background checks and other possible life-saving measures, but he was given only a few seconds to react. After that, the police were called in.
“Nineteen children died!” Cruz’s adversary declared accurately as he was being hauled away: That’s on your hands!
According to Indivisible Houston, the confrontation occurred at a restaurant named Uptown Sushi. The individual who was shouting at Senator Cruz was hauled away, and the senator returned to his seat.
Cruz condemned the massacre at Robb Elementary School as “evil” in his statement against gun control on Friday. He spoke before former President Donald Trump, who voiced identical thoughts while reiterating his bogus assertion that he was cheated out of the 2020 presidential race.
