New York Daily News rips GOP’s one-dimensional response to shootings: ‘God Isn’t Fixing This’

In the wake of yesterday’s mass shootings in San Bernardino, California, the New York Daily News slammed Republicans, calling them “cowards” who “hide behind meaningless platitudes.” The cover story featured Republicans Ted Cruz, Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, and Lindsey Graham, along with the headline “GOD ISN’T FIXING THIS.”

In the wake of yesterday’s mass shootings in San Bernardino, California, the New York Daily News slammed Republicans, calling them “cowards” who “hide behind meaningless platitudes.” The cover story featured Republicans Ted Cruz, Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, and Lindsey Graham, along with the headline “GOD ISN’T FIXING THIS.”

Yesterday, 28-year-old Syed Rizwan Farook and a second suspect, who was either Farook’s wife or girlfriend, 27-year-old Tashfeen Malik, burst into a center for people with developmental disabilities during a holiday party and opened fire, killing 14 and injuring 17. Currently, no motive is clear. The two suspects were armed with assault weapons — possibly AR-15s- and handguns. The two escaped in an SUV and led police on a lengthy manhunt.

After the suspects left the Inland Regional Center, the chaos continued, as survivors continued to hide in bathrooms and closets. The SWAT team that scoured the area found two suspicious devices, both of which were inactive.

The two suspects sped through the city in an SUV, and threw a bomb-like device into the street, which did not detonate. The vehicle suddenly stopped in a neighborhood street, and police opened fire, killing both of the suspects.

The New York Daily News reacted with rage to conservative politicians who ask for “prayers,” while continuing to oppose gun laws and support the NRA.

“As latest batch of innocent Americans are left lying in pools of blood, cowards who could truly end gun scourge continue to hide behind meaningless platitudes,” reads the subheading on the paper’s front page.

Nearly every Republican politician reacted to the shooting with similar statements, simply saying that the victims were in the country’s thoughts and prayers. As soon as the tweets were published, many on Twitter slammed the GOP response.

Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders both called for change in the country, and swore to put an end to the violence with gun legislation. Democrat dark horse Martin O’Malley directly called out the NRA, and swore to put meaningful laws in place.
