The Texas Safety Commission held it's first meeting at the State Capitol today. Governor Greg Abbott told reporters the roundtables will look at how prevent attacks like the one at an El Paso Walmart earlier this month. The shooting left 22 dead. The governor says the group will follow the facts before coming up with potential solutions. Another meeting is next week in El Paso.
Earlier this week the governor said, “The State of Texas will not relent in its effort to help the El Paso community heal and keep all Texans safe,” said Governor Abbott. “The Texas Safety Commission will bring together experts and community leaders to develop an action plan to combat threats of domestic terrorism, root out extremist ideologies, and address the link between mental health challenges and gun violence in our communities. By working together, we will we ensure a safe and secure future for all Texans."
