Friday morning, freshman Jaylen Fryberg open fired at Marysville-Pilchuck High School (MPHS), killing one and injuring 3 others before taking his own life. However, gun control activists wasted no time advocating more gun restrictions, attacking the NRA, and going after Wayne LaPierre. Here is a sample list of tweets:
Has @NRA announced yet that the only solution to today's school mass shooting is 'more guns'?

2 dead in #MarysvilleShooting; Wayne LaPierre updates that fundraising letter on how NRA members are the real victims.

People kill people
People with guns kill more people faster
The NRA works to make murder easier

These are just some of the endless examples of politicizing a shooting that the left does every time. In fact, the Daily Caller reported that MSNBC already talked about gun control a half hour into their coverage of the shooting.
When America is grieving, the gun control activists always rush to action and politicize for more gun control. It’s bad enough that they still advocate against the 2nd amendment, but even worse when they politicize this issue on the same day of the shooting.
