(FeaturedNews.com) – On Tuesday, former Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., spoke about the deadly shooting in a private Christian school in Nashville, Tennessee. Her remarks echoed those made by the “TODAY” show’s Jenna Bush Hager who stated that the focus should not be on banning books from schools but rather on stopping gun violence in schools.
According to a report, an armed former student entered the school and killed three children and three adults at The Covenant School in Nashville on Monday. According to authorities, the 28-year-old suspect who was fatally shot by officers at the scene was identified to be Nashville resident Audrey Hale.
In a segment of NBC’s “TODAY” show on Tuesday, Bush Hager, daughter of former President George W. Bush, stated that she had a friend in Nashville and that she even “knew of one of the little girls who was nine,” who died in the school shooting.
Cheney endorsed the statement made by Bush Hager on Tuesday in a tweet. Cheney was one of the 14 Republicans last year who had voted along with House Democrats in a sweeping gun violence legislation. In her own statement, Cheney stated that “as a mother and a constitutional conservative,” she thought that the bill would be instrumental in curbing gun violence and promoting safety. At the time, Cheney had also claimed that the bill did not restrict gun ownership.
The legislation was signed by President Joe Biden who claimed that this was proof that the two parties could find some common ground when dealing with important issues.
