Parkland shooting survivor advised politicians to bother more about guns than gay wedding cakes


A survivor of the Parkland high school shooting has torn into Republican politicians for responding to massacres with “thoughts and prayers” because they still march against LGBT people. Former Stoneman Douglas High School student Nikolas Cruz killed 17 on Wednesday with a legally purchased AR-15 rifle – just one of five he bought over the past year, according to CNN.  According to Instagram chats it is clear that he hated gay people and wanted them to die. Cameron Kasky, a senior at the school, told CNN host Anderson Cooper – who was also on the ground in Florida after the Orlando massacre – that it is time to take actions instead of using senseless words. “There’s a section of this society that will just shrug this off and send their thoughts and prayers, but will march for hours when they have to bake a rainbow wedding cake,” said the boy. “I think that’s what they want us to think. I think that after every shooting, the NRA sends them a memo saying: ‘Send your thoughts and prayers, say let’s not talk about it now, say this happens'”. But it is not enough.
