Congressman Ted Lieu walked out during a moment of silence for the victims of the Texas shooting. Lieu claimed he left because he had gone to "too many moments of silences" and demanded real action be taken to end gun violence in America. Some view Lieu's decision as disrespectful and believe the constant denigration of "thoughts and prayers" is insensitive and wrong. But others argue politicians who offer nothing more than their condolences is not enough. What do you think? 🙏
