Guns Didn’t Cause Uvalde School Shooting Massacre, Bad Parenting From Deadbeats Did 


I don’t say this very often, but the Daily Beast published an interesting story on Salvador Ramos Sr, the father of Uvalde gunman who killed 19 children and 2 teachers at Robb Elementary School on Tuesday. The kneejerk reaction from self serving politicians like Beto O’Rourke and Joe Biden was to immediately blame the shooting on guns, demand unspecified gun laws that would’ve done nothing to prevent the shooting, and claim that their political opponents have blood on their hands for not passing these laws. But the Daily Beast story accidentally highlights a much bigger problem that politicians and the media won’t address – Salvador Ramos was a product of shitty parenting.

The story attempts to make the father seem sympathetic, but anyone who has dealt with excuse making degenerates knows one when they see one:

In an interview with The Daily Beast on Thursday, Salvador Ramos said, “I just want the people to know I’m sorry man, [for] what my son did. I never expected my son to do something like that,” Ramos, 42, added. “He should’ve just killed me, you know, instead of doing something like that to someone.”

His son, also called Salvador, shot his grandmother in the face on Tuesday and drove away with her car, before running the truck into a ditch outside Robb Elementary and opening fire on a fourth-grade classroom. Ramos said he was at work the day of the shooting, and only learned of it when his own mother called to tell him. In a panic, he started calling the local jail, asking them if his son was there.

Eventually the realization sunk in.

“They killed my baby man. I’m never gonna see my son again, just like they’re not gonna see their kids. And that hurts me.”

They killed your baby? Your “baby” was a grown man who murdered 19 children and 2 teachers in cold blood. Your son isn’t a victim, he was an animal who got put down like animals do when they attack innocent people.

The Daily Beast spoke with Ramos on the porch of his girlfriend’s home east of Uvalde, where he has been living for several years. The details of his son’s attack were horrifying: According to authorities, he purchased two rifles and 375 rounds of ammunition in the leadup to the massacre, and barricaded himself inside the classroom for over an hour. One student recalled him telling the children in the classroom: “It’s time to die.”

Despite the horrific slaughter he carried out Tuesday, Ramos insisted that his son was “a good person” who “stuck to himself.” He claimed to have no idea why his son became so violent, or why he chose to target the school.

If you don’t realize why your kid became so violent and angry it’s probably because you’re not paying enough attention to them.

But he said he did notice one change in his son in recent months: a pair of boxing gloves he’d purchased and started testing out at a local park. “I said, ‘Mijo, one day somebody’s going to kick your ass,’” Ramos recalled. “I started seeing different changes in him like that.”

The younger Ramos reportedly had a poor relationship with his mother and had dropped out of high school ahead of his graduation this year. His father admitted he had not spent much time with him lately because he was employed outside Uvalde—he digs holes around utility poles for inspection—and because of the pandemic.

So he’s admitting that he didn’t spend time with his son because he was too busy working and blames the pandemic. We all (except for Daily Beast subscribers) have to work to provide for our families, yet we find the time to balance work and parental duties.

Dad blamed COVID for his absence from his son’s life:

His own mother was suffering from cancer, Ramos said, and he could not risk being exposed to the coronavirus. He added that his son grew frustrated with the COVID precautions about a month ago and refused to speak to him. Ramos has not seen him since.

Oh f*** off. He’s blaming his absence from his son’s life on his fear of a virus with a 99.9% recovery rate and he’s hiding behind his mother with cancer. Millions of people have relatives with cancer and they didn’t cut off their children because of it. Lots of kids grew frustrated with COVID precautions, which is why it was important for attentive parents to be there for their children. This also makes no sense because Dad could get COVID and give it to grandma just as easily as his son.

“My mom tells me he probably would have shot me too, because he would always say I didn’t love him,” he told The Daily Beast.

Oh yea, that’s normal. I wonder why his son would say that?

It gets worse….

Ramos also faulted the boy’s mother, Adriana Reyes, for not buying him more school supplies and clothes. He said his son was bullied at school for wearing the same high-water jeans every day, and that this was the reason he ultimately dropped out. Attempts to reach Reyes for comment this week were unsuccessful.

He dropped out of school because he didn’t have back to school clothes and other kids made fun of him, and that’s the mother’s fault. First of all, I got made fun of for their Shaw’s brand clothing and lack of a Starter jacket and Reebok Pumps growing up. It sucked, but I didn’t think about shooting up the school because I had attentive parents who reminded me that material things weren’t nearly as important as the education I was receiving.

Secondly, if you let your kid drop out of school because other kids are making fun of him for his Walmart clothing line then you’re a shitty parent.

Thirdly, why is he blaming the mother for the lack of clothing? What was stopping him from buying his son new clothes? Isn’t that why he was working so much? To take care of his family?

Every time a school shooting happens the press immediately tries to make it about guns and bullying, but that’s not what happened here:

Former classmates and families confirmed that the younger Ramos had been bullied in middle school for a speech impediment. But some former co-workers and others who knew him said Ramos had an aggressive streak, and his internet history pointed to someone all too happy to descend into twisted boasting about guns and mass bloodshed. A high school classmate told the Washington Post she had seen Ramos engage in multiple fist fights, and a former co-worker told The Daily Beast he was inclined toward harassing women he worked with.

“I don’t think he was necessarily bullied,” the classmate, Nadia Reyes, told the paper. “He would take things too far, say something that shouldn’t be said, and then he would go into defense mode about it.”

Salvador Ramos was suffering from Taylor Lorenz syndrome – he acted like a jackass, got called out for his behavior, and then said he was being bullied in order to turn himself into the victim. This is the point in life where a strong male role model could’ve come in handy, but his criminal father wasn’t around:

For his own part, the father has a lengthy criminal record which includes at least one conviction for assault and causing bodily injury to a family member.

I love how the Daily Beast just glosses over the fact that Dad is a criminal with a history of beating up family members. They also don’t do much to explain this:

He said he was currently estranged from his daughter—the gunman’s sister—who he said was also upset with him for not spending enough time with the family. The sister, 21, joined the Navy and is no longer living at home.

“My daughter, I guess, changed her life, she went to the Navy,” he said. “I wish my son would have gone and changed his life.”

The daughter made something of herself by getting rid of her deadbeat father from her life. Almost as if it’s a pattern with this guy.

The son apparently lived with his maternal grandparents, had no plan to shoot up the school, and committed the atrocity as a spur of the moment thing after shooting his grandmother because she wanted him to pay for his own cell phone bill:

Ramos said his son frequently complained about his maternal grandmother, who was in the hospital recovering from her injuries this week. He said he offered to let his son move in with his own parents, but that the teenager declined, citing the lack of WiFi. (The teenager’s final dispute with his maternal grandmother before he shot her was reportedly about his phone bill.)

Why was he living with his grandparents? Where was Mom? Well, she’s also speaking out and says that her son “had his reasons” for killing 19 children.

So she’s obviously a deadbeat too.

He added that he was speaking out because “I want my son’s story out there.”

“I don’t want them calling him a monster… they don’t know nothing, man,” he said. “They don’t know anything he was going through.”

You don’t know what he was going through either because you weren’t there. He was a monster, but he didn’t become one over night. You should’ve been there to see the signs.

The maternal grandfather he lived with had no idea that there were guns in his house and couldn’t be around them because he too is a convicted felon.

Reyes, meanwhile, said he wasn’t a fan of guns and questioned how his grandson managed to acquire them.

“They don’t let you buy beer until 21, but they let you buy guns at 18,” he said. “I despise weapons.”

Earlier Wednesday, Reyes told ABC News he couldn’t “be around” guns due to a prior felony conviction.

Salvador Ramos came from a family of neglectful criminals and deadbeats, and sadly his elderly felon grandfather was the best option for taking care of him.

Beto O’Rourke and gun control Nazis don’t have the balls to address the root of the problem here. They believe that it “takes a village” because at their core they don’t like the idea of the nuclear family. It’s why they want universal pre-k, free lunch and breakfast, and free college – so the government can mold your kids from the youngest age possible through adulthood. Admitting that this child is the product of poor parenting would suggest that parenting is the most important factor in how children turn out. At the end of the day they want to be the one raising your kids so they can impart their values on them, which is why they always blame it on guns.
