In one day: We lost a 3 year old in my backyard, & at least 20 plus in a shooting in TX. With friends & family who own guns. Who does this help? Those with guns @ church? @ Theaters? @ Concerts? @ Schools? Vehicles? End this mindless movement towards more guns in our communities.— Rey A. Saldaña (@rey4sa) November 5, 2017
It isn't "politicizing the issue" to ask how we can prevent it in the future.— Diego Bernal (@DiegoBernalTX) November 5, 2017

I will keep the victims in my thoughts, but the key here is legislation. We need change. ASAP.— Rep. Diana Arevalo (@dianaarevalo) November 5, 2017
News of church shooting in Sutherland Springs is heartbreaking. A month after LV. At what point are thoughts/prayers not enough? #Prevention— Ina Minjarez (@vote4ina) November 5, 2017

Thoughts and prayers must be accompanied by action. Calling for action isn’t insensitive, it’s imperative. This can’t keep happening.— William "Cruz" Shaw (@willcruzshaw) November 6, 2017
