PIC: Here's why a headline about the California shootings is causing such debate in the US
Strong editorial stance from the New York Daily News.
The sad fact is that 14 people are dead, while 17 others were wounded following the 355th mass shooting in the US this year. This one took place in San Bernardino, California.
'Gun control,' 'endless cycles of violence' and 'a culture of destruction' are the buzz words around this latest, senseless killing and a journalist named Igor Volsky has had enough of those perceived empty words from US politicians.
Volsky has started a campaign to highlight the empty platitudes and words of comfort from US politicians towards the victims and their families.
Using the hashtag #thoughtsandprayers, Volsky has been tweeting out the messages from those US officials who were happy to express their "thoughts" or "prayers," but who have also been known supporters, voters or political beneficiaries of the N.R.A (National Rifle Association).
Check out his timeline as he calls out politicians who tweet one message, but have been known to support/have ties to the most influential pro-rifle lobbying group in the world.
The New York Daily News echoed Volsky's sentiments with this daring and bold front page.
It's incredibly striking.
