Obama responds to Texas shooting on Twitter, DML hits back


Former President Barack Obama took to Twitter on Sunday evening to express his thoughts about the mass shooting that took place on Sunday morning in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Marked as the deadliest mass shooting in the history of Texas, Devin Patrick Kelley, 26, walked into a First Baptist Church and killed 26 people and injured another 20.

Kelley was dishonorably discharged from the U.S. military a few years ago and has a history of assaulting his wife and child. The governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, told Fox News on Monday morning that the shooter was previously denied a “right to carry” permit. Therefore, it was already illegal for him to have a gun.

Obama sent out a two-part message on Twitter Sunday evening, repeating his usual call 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. 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,” Obama stated.

DML News CEO Dennis Michael Lynch responded to Obama’s statement with a tweet of his own:

“Where r ur daily tweets 4 gun control when peep shoot each other in Chicago? Ur a hypocrite & a donor seeker. Here’s my 2cents…. shut up!”
