Speaking at a news conference on Capitol Hill today, senior members of the GOP cautioned against a rush to debate gun control in the aftermath of recent events.
“The period right after this tragic shooting is not the time to politicize this issue, just like it wasn’t the right time after the shooting just before it, and won’t be the right time after whatever happens next week.”
Republican leaders went on to suggest people pray instead, though they pointed out everyone should really be praying already.
“We are still sending thoughts and prayers over the Parkland High School shooting that happened way back in early 2018.”
Asked when would be a good time to talk about gun control, Republicans, to their credit, didn’t dodge the question.
“Once there are no longer any shootings in the United States we can consider it.”
