While most of America sadly awaited the tragic details out of the second shooting at Fort Hood, some eagerly licked their chops at the opportunity to use the occasion to push for new gun restrictions. One such person is Shannon Watts, founder of “Moms Demand Action,” a gun control group.

Shannon responded to the criticism:

We’re more than happy to pray for the Fort Hood victims, but we’ll pass on the “#momsdemand #gunsense” stuff, thanks.
