Commenting on the California mass shooting with brutal honesty, the headline on the front page of Thursday’s edition of the New York Daily News reads: “GOD ISN’T FIXING THIS.”

Thursday’s front page slams Republicans who oppose gun control and think “prayers” are an adequate response to gun violence in America.
“God Isn’t Fixing This,” the headline reads, surrounded by the tweets of four Republicans – Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Lindsey Graham, and Paul Ryan – all of whom used the word “prayers” to recognize today’s attack in San Bernardino.
The subhead reads:
As latest batch of innocent Americans are left lying in pools of blood, cowards who could truly end gun scourge continue to hide behind meaningless platitudes.
A companion post from the New York Daily News notes:
Prayers aren’t working.
Another mass shooting prompted another round of silence Wednesday from GOP presidential candidates on the issue of gun control.
Instead, while the Democratic presidential wannabes were calling for stricter gun laws in the wake of the San Bernardino massacre, the Republicans were preaching about prayer.
In fact, an examination of the Twitter feeds of 2016 presidential candidates demonstrates a distinct pattern: Republicans offer prayers; Democrats demand action.
Bottom line: The New York Daily News is correct – God isn’t fixing this (or anything else).
