Executive orders address deadly mass shootings

Article Image Alt Text

STATE CAPITAL HIGHLIGHTS

AUSTIN — Gov. Greg Abbott on Sept. 5 issued eight executive orders in hopes of preventing further mass shootings.

Abbott’s orders came days after seven people were killed and 25 injured in multiple shootings by a lone gunman along thoroughfares connecting the cities of Odessa and Midland on Aug. 31. The suspect fired at law enforcement officers and civilians, including while driving a hijacked postal van between the two cities. Law enforcement officers brought the rampage to a halt in an exchange of gunfire resulting in the death of the suspect when the van he was driving had come to a stop after ramming a police vehicle. The suspect, a 36-year-old white male armed with an assault rifle, was identified as Seth Aaron Ator of Odessa.

Kelly Walker owns the ranch and manages the property with his sons Wayne, Philip & Caton and has had a connection to the land since the late 1940s. The ranch focus changed dramatically about 15 years ago: de-prioritizing livestock in favor of practices to achieve long-term range restoration and wildlife goals.
