As the tragic scene continues to unfold in Brower County, Florida, anti-gunners wasted no time taking to social media to advocate for gun control. It’s absolutely disgusting that these folks can’t wait until the victims are taken of before they begin advocating for their own political agenda.
We need #GunControlNow. This is ridiculous. Our society is complicit until we do SOMETHING.

Something IS being done. Right now, emergency personnel are working to get victims to the hospital. Should they stop assisting them to reply to your tweet?
#Parkland #SchoolShooting is a tragedy. When are lawmakers going to do something about the ease of access to guns? Background checks protect our freedoms, not hamper them. Make them universal. Online, show or otherwise. Invest in our healthcare system. We need #GunControlNow

Have you ever bought a gun, Christopher? You have to fill out paperwork, pass a background check, and in some states, go through a waiting period. It’s not like going and buying a slurpee from 7-11.
Once again, gun violence shatters lives with another school shooting. We need sensible gun control, like background checks and tracing of weapons. My heart breaks for the families affected & my thanks to the first responders in Florida

Hey, Rep. Velazquez: we do have background checks. It’s part of that “common sense gun control law” that liberals wanted. It’s part of the Brady Campaign.
Republicans continue to fight FOR universal gun ownership and AGAINST universal healthcare.

And liberals continue to fight FOR universal background checks even though they already exist.

That’s quite the equation there, isn’t it?
Republicans care more about keeping immigrants out of the country than they care about keeping their own children alive. #GunControlNow

This has GOT to be one of the craziest things ever tweeted.
We already have gun control laws on the books and guess what? The NRA backed the “Fix NICS” bill which would require law enforcement agencies to place all of their records in the National Instant Background Check System (NICS). So, try again?
At least some pro-gun people called out the gun control advocates.
To anyone pushing for gun control while blood hasn't even dried yet:

The shooting’s aftermath is still going. Investigators are still trying to figure out what’s going on and yet we have people who are being keyboard warriors, advocating for gun control policies.
But if you tell that to liberals, they’ll say we’re just trying to pump people full of drugs to control their minds.
A person runs someone over with a car, it’s the person’s fault.
A person stabs someone else, it’s the person’s fault.
A person shoots someone and it’s the gun’s fault.
What’s wrong with this picture?
Not to be talking politics, as the progressives are doing, predictably, with #GunControlNow but Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, as every high school, is a Gun Free Zone. The shooter did not obey the law. #Parkland.

And just because someone posts a sign saying “gun free zone” doesn’t mean a criminal is going to follow said sign. If they have the intent to harm, they will.
#GunControlNow is trending. Y'all don't know all the details yet. Kids fighting for their lives & all you care about is scoring political points! Idiots!! I can't stand y'all!!!!!!

They want to be able to say they jumped right in and demanded a stop to the bloodshed.
Now THAT’S some REAL gun sense right there.
