TX Woman Whose Parents Were Killed In Mass Shooting Slams Gun Control


A Texas woman who lived through tragedy turned the liberal narrative on guns upside down in a passionate testimony she gave before Congress.

Suzanna Gratia Hupp lost both of her parents during a mass shooting in 1991 when a gunman crashed through the building in his truck then opened fire on Luby’s restaurant, where Suzanna and her parents were eating.

The gunman killed 23, including Suzanna’s parents.

“I reached for the gun in my purse on the floor next to me,” Suzanna recalled before members of Congress,

“But then I realized that a few months earlier I had made the stupidest decision of my life. My gun was 100 yards away, dutifully left in my car to obey the law because at that time in the state of Texas, carrying a handgun was illegal.”

Back in 1991, concealed carry was not yet legal in Texas. Thanks to George W. Bush, this was changed in 1995.

Suzanna also pushed for concealed carry to become legal in Texas following the mass shooting that took her parents away from her. Watch Suzanna’s 1991 testimony here (anyone who wants gun control really should watch this):

Since that fateful day, Suzanna Gratia Hupp has dedicated her life to fighting for gun rights.

In the wake of far-left Democrats like Beto O'Rourke and so many others pushing to take away guns from law-abiding citizens, Hupp has spoken out to lawmakers urging them not to restrict Americans' Second Amendment rights.

Dallas Morning News has more to say about Suzanna's lobbying before Congress:

Since surviving a 1991 mass shooting at a Luby's in Killeen, Suzanna Gratia Hupp has lobbied for looser gun control laws that she says could have allowed her to save the 23 victims, including both of her parents.

"I reached for the gun in my purse on the floor next to me," Hupp told a congressional committee Wednesday during a hearing on the economic costs of gun violence. She recounted the moments after the killer, George Hennard, crashed his pickup into the restaurant where she was eating with her parents and opened fire. "But then I realized that a few months earlier I had made the stupidest decision of my life. My gun was 100 yards away, dutifully left in my car to obey the law because at that time in the state of Texas, carrying a handgun was illegal."

Hupp's campaign to ease restrictions on guns has spanned several decades. She won a seat in the Texas House, where she served for 10 years. On Wednesday, she told her story during a hearing of the Joint Economic Committee.

Hupp, a chiropractor, was invited by fellow Republicans, and she focused her testimony on what she called "the high cost of gun control."

The Epoch Times also said:

Suzanna Gratia Hupp has advocated for less restrictive gun control laws since surviving a mass shooting in 1991 that killed 23 people, including both her parents.

Her campaign to loosen restrictions on guns is motivated by that senseless massacre and has covered almost 3 decades.

Hupp has been a leading advocate of an individual’s right to carry a concealed weapon even before winning a seat in the Texas House in 1996, where she served for 10 years.

Her effort to get “common sense” gun laws passed has required her to recount that unforgettable day yet again, in front of the Joint Economic Committee, Understanding and Reducing the Costs of Firearm Injuries and Deaths.

“I reached for the gun in my purse on the floor next to me,” Hupp told the committee. She spoke of the day she lost both her parents when a killer, George Hennard, crashed his pickup into the restaurant where she was eating and opened fire.

She told the committee that she had a perfect position from which to use her handgun to shoot the killer because he was up and everyone else was down on the floor.

 

“But then I realized that a few months earlier, I had made the stupidest decision of my life. My gun was 100 yards away, dutifully left in my car to obey the law because at that time in the state of Texas, carrying a handgun was illegal.”
