Cowboys Compassion: America's Team Reacts to America's Latest Mass Shooting

Frustrated by another school shooting and continued government inaction, Dallas Cowboys players and America's sports stars took to social media to express their emotions.

Enraged by yet another mass shooting in America, America's Team responded Tuesday with anger and demands for change in the wake of the school shooting that killed at least 20 people - including 18 children - in Uvalde, Texas.

This latest shooting comes just 10 days after the grocery store shooting in Buffalo and almost 10 years since the grisly Sandy Hook school shooting in Newton, Connecticut.

Taking a break from voluntary OTAs at The Star in Frisco and depth-chart battles beginning to take form in advance of next month's minicamp and the start of training camp in late July, Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman DeMarcus Lawrence was the most vocal on Twitter. He even challenged Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to make tangible changes and reached out to Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James with an offer to collaborate on solutions.

James, a rabid Cowboys fan, joined the legion of sports stars angrily reacting to yet another senseless shooting.
