“They are cowards! They’re all cowards!” Bowman shouted as he left the conference room. The video shows that moment. “The child is dying!”
“Ask them! forcing them to answer the question ‘Why don’t you do something to help America’s children?’”
Massey, who heard the words, retorted, saying: “You know, there’s never been a shooting in a school where teachers were allowed to carry guns,” which distracted Bowman: “Hold a gun? More guns, more deaths!” he exclaimed while begging him to “look at the data.”

The incident came just two days after another school shooting. This time happened at a Christian elementary school in Nashville called The Covenant that killed three students and three employees of the school. including the perpetrators
The bloodshed began on Monday morning after 10 a.m. when the suspect, identified as Audrey Hale, 28, shot through a locked glass door and began mowing through the building.
