Crumley faces several charges, including terrorism and murder. The Michigan mass shooting is the deadliest school shooting of 2021.
However, the mass shooting did not stop Massie’s post. ” Merry Christmas ! PS. Santa, please bring ammo. Massie posted on his Twitter.
In response to the photo, Democrat John Yarmuth said, “I’m old enough to remember Republicans screaming that it was callous to try to protect people from gun violence after a tragedy.”
One of the parents of the Parkland victim, Fred guttenberg replied to Massie’s post: “One is the last photo I ever took of Jaime, the other is where she is buried because of the Parkland School shooting.”
“The Michigan school shooter and his family were also taking pictures like yours,” he said.
According to the gun violence records, since November 17, more than 20 mass shootings have taken place in America.
Republicans did not hold a hearing on the measure or other gun control laws.
