During an episode of his show InfoWars on May 24, far-right commentator Alex Jones suggested that it was "opportunistic" that the Robb Elementary School shooting happened when it did.

At least 19 young children and two teachers were killed following a shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, authorities said. The suspected gunman, identified as Salvador Ramos, 18, was killed by authorities during the incident.

A clip of Jones making comments regarding the Robb Elementary School shooting during May 24's InfoWars has been shared online.

During the broadcast, Jones said he has predicted a mass shooting would happen ahead of the upcoming elections.

"I don't want to say this was staged," Jones said during his show. "But we have specifically said, with two years of our leading mass shootings, that with all the pre-programming, that mass shootings are coming, terrorists are going to attack and we have got to take the guns. Then I'm like, well I would predict a lot of mass shootings right before elections and like clockwork, it is happening. To me, it is just very opportunistic what is happening."

Newsweek has reached out to InfoWars for comment.

Jones has previously faced significant backlash following his comments on mass shootings.

In the wake of the Sandy Hook attack, Jones infamously claimed that the shooting was a hoax, no children died at the school, and the parents were "crisis actors."

Jones later admitted that a shooting did occur, but said the lawsuits against him should be dismissed for violating his freedom of speech. Jones also claims that there is not enough evidence to prove defamation or intentional infliction of emotional distress.

On March 24, Jones failed to appear for a deposition hearing while claiming he was too unwell to attend. However, Jones still appeared on his InfoWars show in the days before and after the court-ordered hearing.

In response, plaintiffs Erica Lafferty and William Sherlach submitted a court request for Jones to be held in contempt for failing to appear at his deposition on March 25.

In another segment from his May 24 show, Jones dismissed some concerns about gun access in America and said President Joe Biden was politicizing the tragedy.

"If I picked up this table here and smashed it over [co-host] Owen [Shroyer]'s head and he picked it up and smashed it over my head or if he is wearing a gun on his side and he shot me, it is not the gun's fault, it is his fault, "Jones said. "We all know that and just like the white supremacist attack, blaming gun owners... statistically they are still very rare out of 350 million Americans but are still very heartfelt."

"We should not be political at this moment and Joe Biden absolutely is and it is disgusting," Jones added.

Biden said in a speech on Tuesday night that it was "time to turn this pain into action," adding that "we have to have the courage to stand up" to the gun manufacturing industry. Biden also reflected on the frequency of mass shootings in America in his speech.

"It's been 3,448 days—10 years since I stood up at a high school in Connecticut—a grade school in Connecticut, where another gunman massacred 26 people, including 20 first-graders, at Sandy Hook Elementary School," he said.

"Since then, there have been over 900 incidents of gunfire reported on school grounds. Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Santa Fe High School in Texas. Oxford High School in Michigan. The list goes on and on," Biden said. "And the list grows when it includes mass shootings at places like movie theaters, houses of worship, and, as we saw just 10 days ago, at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York."

"I am sick and tired of it. We have to act. And don't tell me we can't have an impact on this carnage," Biden said.
