Paul Ryan Is Being Torched Online For ‘Spineless’ Response To Texas Worst Church Massacre
Speaker of the House Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is being dragged all over the internet after he responded to the worst church massacre in the history of Texas by tweeting that the people of Sutherland Springs “need our prayers.”
“Reports out of Texas are devastating. The people of Sutherland Springs need our prayers right now,” Ryan wrote on Twitter.
Reports out of Texas are devastating. The people of Sutherland Springs need our prayers right now.

The incident is the second mass shooting in the US in less than 48 hours. On Friday, a gunman opened fire at a Walmart Supercenter in Thornton, Colorado, killing three people and wounding several others.
Because of the Republican party’s unrelenting need to bow down to the National Rifle Association (NRA) and its pathological aversion to any form of gun safety regulations, many people were unimpressed with Ryan’s sentiment.
I’m sure they’d much prefer actual legislative action. Ya know since they were already praying and all.

On a day like this, remember you get bribed by the @NRA to do nothing about gun regulation

Not sure if it's a bribe when you willingly and happily take the money, which he does.

There were plenty of prayers in the church where 27 people were gunned down today. What we need is gun control, you spineless sack of shit. https://t.co/b07LXwjk0h

I pray that shills for the NRA get voted out quickly. God hopes that you all stop worshipping the Almighty Dollar and get some decency.

Or something helpful, like gun control.
