Brett Cross, who lost his son during the Robb Elementary shooting, has denounced Governor Greg Abbott's comments pertaining to the ban of anyone under the age of 21 from purchasing guns.

Cross called the Governor out for saying that it is not constitutional to raise the age to 21 because the "change would not matter", his tweeted video pointed out.

The father also called out the Governor for not even knowing the names of the victims that were lost at that massive shooting, and he also invited the Governor for a chat.

Cross' son, Uziyah Garcia, is one of the Nineteen children and two adults who were killed in a shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde County on May 24.

The video that Cross tweeted was replying to had Governor Abbott say that it is impossible to raise the age to buy assault-style weapons from 18 to 21.

In his own words, the Governor said that the decision came from the Federal Court of Appeal, which was the Supreme Court's decision.

Abbott pointed out that the ban being sought is clearly unconstitutional, no matter how much they wanted it -- which led to parents asking why "drinking shouldn't be lowered to 18 then" if gun ownership is allowed at that age.

A federal judge did rule that a Texas law prohibiting adults under the age of 21 from legally carrying a handgun violates the United States Constitution and cannot be enforced.

However, the judge stayed in the enforcement of his injunction for 30 days, or until the outcome of an expected appeal to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
