AUSTIN (KXAN) — Days after Democratic state lawmakers and at least one Republican called on Gov. Greg Abbott to call an emergency special legislative session in the wake of the Uvalde school shooting tragedy, it remained unclear Tuesday whether he plans to do so.

A spokesperson for Abbott’s office directed KXAN to the governor’s comments last Friday in which he said “all options are on the table” when asked about a special session.

The Texas Legislature is set to meet next January; however, the governor can call a 30-day special session to address emergency items.

The Texas Senate Democratic Caucus sent Abbott a letter on Saturday, asking for the immediate passage of laws that would raise the minimum age to purchase any firearm to 21, require universal background checks, implement “red flag” laws, and regulate ownership of high capacity magazines.

During his remarks Friday, Abbott said legislation would be passed following the Uvalde massacre but did not offer details. He said other laws would be reviewed.

“For example, I do fully expect to have every law that we passed in the aftermath of the Santa Fe shooting to be completely revisited,” the governor said.

After the Santa Fe High School shooting in, the Governor in 2019 signed a series of bills including SB 11 which beefed up requirements for school emergency operation plans and required districts to develop behavioral threat assessment teams to spot problems ahead of time.

The changes were the result of roundtable discussions that included both gun rights groups and gun reform advocates.

Nicole Golden, executive director of Texas Gun Sense which advocates for gun violence prevention, said during the roundtable talks, the governor initially expressed interest in some firearm reforms including red flag laws, but nothing really came it.

Golden said this time feels different, adding she has “faith in the method of chipping away at a problem” like gun violence.

“Even the biggest problems require a ‘chipping away’ strategy,” she told KXAN. “You have to invest in playing the long game.”
