During a press conference on Friday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) said that the weapons used in the Sante Fe shooting were not legally possessed by the shooter and current information is that the weapons were legally owned by the shooter’s father.
Abbott said, “As you probably have heard, the weapons used in this attack, there are two weapons. One was a shotgun and the other is a .38 revolver. Neither of these weapons were owned or legally possessed by the shooter. It is my information that both of these weapons were obtained by the shooter from his father. It’s my information at this time that the father legally owned these weapons. I have no information at this time whether or not the father was aware that his son had taken these weapons from the father.”
