At least 17 innocent people — including children — were gunned down in cold blood on Valentine’s Day by a 19-year-old man … and celebrities are voicing some of the opinions many of us are trying to formulate into words.
Whether it’s Chelsea Handler declaring to the GOP, “You all have blood on your hands,” or “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro who “can’t believe this is still happening,” everyone can at least agree that we have seen enough tragedy.
Maybe Bill Maher was the most realistic by putting it bluntly, “This isn’t inevitable. This is America.”
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is now the 18th school shooting … in 2018.
We have to elect candidates that are not funded by the NRA in November. We have an opportunity to elect candidates who won’t allow kids to go to school and get shot. It is disgusting how many times this has happened and Republicans do nothing. You all have blood on your hands.

Another day another school shooting. Another bad day for the Donald. NRA Happy as can be.

At every mass shooting some politician says our prayers are with the families! But faith without works is dead! And so are 17 kids! #TeamDl

Heard the word “tragedy” 100 times already about the school shooting – not really, by the classical definition: tragedy is fated and inevitable. This isn’t inevitable. This is America.

My heart and prayers are with the victims and their dearest ones affected by this terrible shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. What a heinous tragedy. 🕯

If you are not willing to re-examine and renegotiate our relationship to guns and violence, you are a culprit and a coward of the highest order.
This is the 5th school shooting this year and it’s only February. Grow a spine, America.

Another school shooting, this in FLA. Congrats to the spineless cowards who do nothing to help us stem this horrific epidemic, ie CONGRESS

angered to hear about the parkland highschool shooting. a tweet doesnt do much but we want to at least show our support to victims’ families and also to the kids who made it through this evil. survivors will need so much support and the right resources to deal with this trauma.
