The Borderland remembers the one-year anniversary of the Robb Elementary mass shooting

UPDATE - State Representative Joe Moody spoke to ABC-7 about the ongoing work with just a few days left in the legislative session.

He spoke to the progress made by lawmakers in response to the Uvalde mass shooting, and the area where he still believes progress can be made.

"We have done a fairly good job on school security, I think have done a better job but still work to do on access to mental health. Where we have failed, and where we continue to fail, is gun safety," said State Rep. Moody.

ABC-7 spoke with Canutillo ISD about how they've tried to boost security and communication over the past year.

"This year, we we enacted a safety committee made up of not just teachers and employees, but also parents. And that committee met several times a year to discuss our protocols, to discuss our plans, to help us craft new policies and procedures. We gave reports to them about some of the training that our officers are going through, about some of the issues that we're facing," said Gustavo Reveles, a spokesman with Canutillo ISD.
