This morning, a gunman killed at least nine students and one teacher at Santa Fe High School in Texas using a shotgun and a handgun legally purchased by his father. In response, Florida gubernatorial candidate and self-described "proud NRA sellout" Adam Putnam sends his thoughts and prayers. 

"I’m saddened to see more innocent lives taken in a place that should be a safe learning environment," tweet Putnam. "My heart is heavy for all the students, parents and teachers of the Sante Fe community. May God be with them as they cope with the sudden loss of these precious lives."
Putnam, who has received at least $9,500 from the National Rifle Association over the course of his political career while attempting to relax Florida's already insanely loose gun laws, also sent a hollow and pointless message to the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last February.
Speaking of which, today's tragedy is the 22nd school shooting so far this year, and comes just a month after students from Santa Fe joined Parkland survivors in a nationwide planned walkout to protest gun violence.
