GOP Sen. Ted Cruz, of Texas, is facing furious backlash over his response to the elementary school shooting that killed at least 19 students and two teachers in his state Tuesday.

Cruz reacted to the massacre by saying in a tweet he is praying for the victims and afflicted families. In response, Twitter users slammed the Texas Republican over his support for gun rights and for blocking measures on gun reform that would prevent tragedies like the shooting in Uvalde.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) lambasted Cruz over plans to speak at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting set to take place three days after the deadly mass shooting.

“Aren’t you slated to headline a speaking gig for the NRA in three days — in Houston, no less?,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “You can do more than pray. Faith without works is dead.”

Pastor John Pavlovitz wrote: “Your prayers may as well be bullets.”

Others called on the Texas senator to “(expletive) and resign.”
