‘GO TO HELL!’: Ted Cruz Thrown In Hot Lava Over His Response To Latest Texas Massacre



Ted Cruz

Texas senator Rafael (Ted) Cruz is facing harsh criticism over his response to the mass shooting at a mall in Allen, TX that left at least 8 killed and 7 wounded on Saturday afternoon.

“Heidi and I are praying for the families of the victims of the horrific mall shooting in Allen, Texas,” Cruz tweeted. “We pray also for the broader Collin County community that’s in shock from this tragedy.”

Cruz’s tweet sparked a fierce backlash, with some calling out the Texas senator for only offering prayers without any solutions to the recurring gun violence across the nation.

“You’re worse than useless,” replied George Takei.

“It’s literally your fault,” another user wrote.

In response to the tragedy, President Joe Biden again urged Congress to pass legislation banning assault weapons and enacting universal background checks.

“Too many families have empty chairs at their dinner tables. Republican Members of Congress cannot continue to meet this epidemic with a shrug. Tweeted thoughts and prayers are not enough,” Biden said in a written statement Sunday morning.

“Once again I ask Congress to send me a bill banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Enacting universal background checks. Requiring safe storage. Ending immunity for gun manufacturers. I will sign it immediately. We need nothing less to keep our streets safe,” he added.

Biden ordered flags at the White House and other federal buildings to half-staff to honor the victims through May 11.

The attack in Allen, Texas, is one of at least 199 mass shootings in the US this year, according to the Gun Violence Archive.
