It was recently reported by Breitbart that former President Barack Obama responded to Tuesday’s attack on Robb Elementary School by criticizing the “gun lobby” and pushing for “action” on guns now.

The New York Times quoted Obama saying, “Nearly 10 years after Sandy Hook — and 10 days after Buffalo — our country is paralyzed, not by fear, but by a gun lobby and a political party that have shown no willingness to act in any way that might help prevent these tragedies.”

Obama added, “It’s long past time for action, any kind of action. And it’s another tragedy — a quieter but no less tragic one — for families to wait another day.”

President Joe Biden also responded to the Robb Elementary School attack, including mention of an “assault weapons” ban.

Biden even maligned the idea of purchasing firearms that Democrats label as “assault weapons,” saying, “What in God’s name do you need an ‘assault weapon’ for except to kill someone? Deer aren’t running through the forest with Kevlar vests on, for God’s sake.”

Deadline further reported that a teenage gunman in Texas killed 18 students and a teacher Tuesday at an elementary school near San Antonio in what would be one of the deadliest mass shootings at a school in U.S. history.

Officials said an 18-year-old gunman was killed by police in response to the shooting and acted alone. It is the deadliest school gun massacre in the U.S. since 2012, when a 20-year-old shooter killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT.

The reaction to today’s evil act at Robb Elementary School in rural Uvalde, Texas, was swift and visceral, with many online snapping back at “thoughts and prayers” tweets in exchange for calls to action to address gun violence in the country.

It was further reported that during an impassioned speech from the Senate floor on Tuesday, Democratic Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut lamented failed efforts at gun control and charged that those who believed the Texas shooting was explained by a national mental health crisis instead of easy access to guns believed in “bulls**t.”

While Democrats were speaking out against the gun lobby and demanding stricter gun control in the wake of the shooting, Republican figures like Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia spoke out against gun control and instead suggested that a solution could be found in prayers and the country making a “return to God.”
