In response to the Fort Hood shooting this week, Texas Republican Congressman Pete Olson took to Twitter to express his thoughts about what to do:
Well… whatever happened, prayer sure as hell won’t fix anything. And one of Olson’s followers replied back with that precise sentiment:
We don’t need prayers. We need cowardly Congressmen to stand up to the gun industry’s @NRA & pass sensible gun laws. @OlsonPressShop
That would certainly be more effective.
You’d think the story ends there. But it didn’t.
