Former President Barack Obama wasted little time before calling for gun control after 26 people were killed in a church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Sunday afternoon, he expressed his condolences and immediately politicized the tragedy.
"We grieve with all the families in Sutherland Springs harmed by this act of hatred, and we'll stand with the survivors as they recover..." Obama tweeted, beginning his statement innocently. Then, he switched gears. "May God also grant all of us the wisdom to ask what concrete steps we can take to reduce the violence and weaponry in our midst."
