Florida Gov. Scott responds to question "what can the rest of us do?" with "Pray."

Pray for this, pray for that. Not a word about more strongly supporting the fight against homophobia, not a word about supporting an assault weapons ban.

The most we who are horrified about this tragedy can do is... pray.

I'm not knocking prayer. I am pointing out the travesty of not looking at what action we can take that will have a direct preventive impact on this. Advocacy can make a difference. So can voting.

On edit: CNN just reporting that he was known to be homophobic.

7. Yet you see it time and again.

I'm sick of it.

To me it's becoming an excuse to sit and do nothing, yet still feel good about oneself.

2. I guess he's right.

 

Since we totally missed the boat on curbing violence, we might as well hope some deity resurrects the victims we failed to protect in the first place.

4. You know what?

I AM praying because I have LGBT family and friends in the Orlando area. But that's personal. As a member of society I say FUCK prayer and do something

5. I HATED that response when he said it.

Pray that it won't happen again? I think that many did that after Sandy Hook and here we are. It's the GUNS!

6. Just reported on CNN that he was a security guard and bought a Glock 2 weeks ago that he had

on him this morning in the club.

So in this case apparently the screening process was inadequate. No word yet on the legality of the assault weapon.

8. I know one thing he can do: expand Medicaid.

How many of the people in the hospital will be bankrupted by medical bills?
