Arizona Reacts to South Florida Shooting on Twitter

We are only 45 days into 2018 and there has been yet another school shooting, this one in Broward County, Florida. It is at least the 18th school shooting of the year

The exact number of fatalities at Stoneman Douglas High School remains unknown, but there have been reports of at least 14 victims as of this writing. The shooter is apparently in custody, but it is still considered an active scene. Read the coverage from our sister paper, Miami New Times.

Here is what Arizona politicians have been saying on Twitter about the latest school shooting:

This post has been updated to include tweets after this originally published.

Senator John McCain made sure to send his prayers once again, so here's a friendly reminder that he received over seven million dollars from the NRA.

And finally multiple tweets from Representative Ruben Gallego, including calling out Senator Marco Rubio.

As of this writing, Senator Jeff Flake, Representatives David Schweikert, and Andy Biggs are the main elected officials in Arizona to not say anything, though Rep Biggs did retweet the President and Vice President's thoughts and prayers tweets.
