U.S. President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden visit Robb Elementary School to pay their respects to the victims of the mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

The President and first lady plan to be in the small southwestern city for few hours, talking with those most affected by the carnage that ensued after an 18-year-old gunman Salvador Ramos burst into a fourth-grade classroom at Robb Elementary School and opened fire killing 19 school children and two teachers. Biden is also expected to attend a Catholic Mass and meet with first responders.

Two native Texan celebrities Selena Gomez, 29 and Matthew McConaughey also spoke out against state and federal gun laws, after the mass massacre in their home state. Federal gun laws cannot be changed as all 50 Republicans and 2 Democrats in the Senate have been stalling bills that ask for tougher gun laws.

Selena Gomez wrote two lengthy posts on social media calling for reform of gun laws. She asked “those in power “ to take action instead of “giving lip service.”

Matthew McConaughey also posted several questions on how to look at a resolution to mass massacres in schools around the nation, as well as in Texas. The celebrity actor said that Americans have to “renegotiate our wants from our needs.”
