As information about the Santa Fe High School shooting continues to come out, a number of politicians have offered "thoughts and prayers." But gun control activists say politicians need to take action, not just pray for the victims. "Thoughts and prayers" are meaningless if they aren't followed up with any real, tangible policy change. But others believe belittling "thoughts and prayers" is insensitive and wrong. Let people grieve. What do you think? 🙏

According to CNN, 10 people have been killed and several others injured in a school shooting that occurred in Santa Fe, Texas.

Gunfire erupted at Santa Fe High School, about 20 miles outside Galveston, not long after classes began around 7:30 a.m. CT, officials said. Authorities later found explosive devices -- including pipe bombs and pressure cookers -- in and near the school, the law enforcement official said.
This is the 22nd US school shooting since the beginning of the year, and the third instance in eight days in which a gunman was on a school campus.
