On Friday, after the shooting at Sante Fe High School, the mayor of Dallas didn’t hold back on his words for Trump and Republicans in Congress. He blasted them for offering “thoughts and prayers” after every mass shooting instead of taking action.

Mayor Mike Rawlings posted his statement on Twitter. It reads, “ I renew my call for Congress and the president to take substantive action on the mass shooting epidemic in our country.”

He continued, “History will not look kindly upon those elected officials who failed to act in the face of repeated mass murders of our children.”

He concluded his statement by advising Trump and Republicans to do their job. He wrote, “Spare us your thoughts and prayers and do your job.”

Surprisingly, Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) even stated Texas “need to do more than just pray for the victims and their families” after shootings. Abbott added that the state needs to take action and make sure this tragedy doesn’t happen again in Texas.

Abbott wants to hold roundtables immediately on new measures that will reduce gun violence.

Mayor Rawling applauded Abbott for his words, saying that his words are “productive.”

Rawling wrote, “Thank you, @GovAbbott. This sounds like the kind of inclusive and productive dialogue I wish we could see from our leaders in Washington. Hope it leads to meaningful reform that addresses all aspects of mass shootings.”
