There was horrible news out of Santa Fe, Texas this morning at Santa Fe High School after a student opened fire inside the school which resulted in multiple fatalities. President Trump tweeted this after the news broke:
School shooting in Texas. Early reports not looking good. God bless all!

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo already seems to know who’s to blame, and that’s, not surprisingly, the NRA and President Trump:
Dear @realDonaldTrump and Washington Republicans:
Columbine. Virginia Tech. Sandy Hook. Las Vegas. Orlando. Parkland. Santa Fe.
When is enough enough?
How many more innocent people have to die before you act?
You were elected to lead – DO SOMETHING. https://t.co/2RnZ6By7cN

Cuomo didn’t outline what in particular could have been done to help prevent awful crimes like the one committed today, other than to yet again blame the NRA.
What do YOU propose, @NYGovCuomo? The assault weapons ban did NOT reduce gun murders. What is your solution to the 2nd Amendment problem we have?

Sadly, it’s never too soon to politicize a tragedy.
