Obama Gets Political After Texas Shooting, Trump Stands Strong
In the wake of Sunday’s church shooting in Texas, former President Obama weighed in not only by expressing his grief but also by calling for gun control.

“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 said on Twitter. “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.”
 
While he did not go into further detail it was reminiscent of the many times he made similar calls for tougher gun laws when responding to shootings during his presidency.

President Trump on the other hand said the mass shooting is not about guns but mental health.
