Lawmakers Offer ‘Prayers’ For Mass Shooting Victims, Receive Large Checks From The NRA

Following Wednesday afternoon’s mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, which left at least 14 people dead, numerous lawmakers tweeted their “thoughts and prayers” to the victims of the gruesome tragedy. But many of the same congresspeople who were quick to publicly register their feelings about the 352nd mass shooting this year, received thousands of dollars from the National Rifle Association and voted against sensible gun reforms like expanding background checks to more gun purchases.

The Daily News also blasted lawmakers for looking to God instead of turning to more concrete legislative action.
