“A video shows Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas being confronted at a restaurant following his appearance at the National Rifle Association convention in Houston.

The tense exchange came days after an 18-year-old gunman killed 19 school children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday.

"Why did you speak tonight? Why did you come here to the convention to take blood money? Why, when 19 children died? 19 children died! That's on your hands!" the video shows Benjamin Hernandez yelling at Cruz, who waved while Hernandez was dragged away by security.

Hernandez, an independent, ran for Congress to represent TX-09, which contains portions of Houston, in 2018.

A longer video was posted by Indivisible Houston, a political advocacy organization of which Hernandez is a board member. The video shows the beginning of the exchange, where Cruz posed for a photo with Hernandez before the latter began asking why Cruz refuses to support stricter gun control laws including background checks."
