Gutierrez, a Democrat, has been very vocal about getting stricter gun laws passed in Texas.

He confronted Gov. Greg Abbott during a news conference the governor was holding on Friday, demanding that Abbott call a special session of the Legislature to address gun control.

Gutierrez also signed a letter along with other Democrats addressed to Abbott demanding the special session. Abbott, though, didn’t call for a special session. He instead called on the Texas Legislature to form special committees to make legislative recommendations in response to the Uvalde school shooting.
