This Cover of NY Daily News Is Holding Absolutely Nothing Back

December 2nd 2015

Hours after the deadly shooting in San Bernardino, California that left 14 people dead and 17 others injured on Wednesday, the New York Daily News tweeted out their Thursday morning cover.

The cover and accompanying article criticizes Republican presidential candidates for offering "prayers" as opposed to solutions when it comes to America's glaring gun control crisis.

While many GOP players conveyed their "thoughts and prayers" in 140 characters or less in the hours following the 355th domestic shooting this year, the New York Daily News' cover specifically calls out Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

The publication is echoing many of the sentiments heard across the internet today.

A reddit thread titled "Maybe praying isn't enough?" put Gov. Mike Huckabee on blast for delivering the same sentiment following every recent gun violence crisis, yet making no moves to help the problem.

The New York Daily News had an equally striking cover the day after the Umpqua Community College shooting in October, comparing the tragedy with the shootings at Sandyhook Elementary School.
