Good news, everybody! Prayers are an acceptable response to violence again! Following the deadly attack in Toronto today, in which a man driving a van mowed down and killed at least nine pedestrians on a sidewalk, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio offered his support and condolences:
Our prayers are with the victims of today's horrific van attack in Toronto. We extend our deepest condolences to their families and loved ones.

That’s nice, Bill de Blasio. But when are you going to, you know,Â do something?Â That’s how this works, isn’t it?
Oh look the 'your prayers to some god fairy aren't enough, so we need to stripe you of your rights' crowd is calling for prayers https://t.co/ojsXx8t9rr

Your thoughts and prayers are meaningless if you have no desire to undertake legislative action that will prevent this from happening again. https://t.co/ZK4Cgjy3G7

Clearly lefties need to have a talk with Mayor de Blasio and get their stories straight.
