Jesus Christ is the answer.

Some of the responses:
You’re kidding, right?
Unfortunately, No. This has been another edition of Short Answers to Simple Questions.
Jesus Christ helped me save 15% on my car insurance by telling me to switch to Geico.
He ain’t walking through that door.
The problem is, you don’t even care to understand the question.. so, when the going gets rough, you throw the name of Jesus around to cover your sins, bc you believe it can’t possibly be the guns? [….] IT’S THE GUNS MARK! [….]
Then why didn’t he protect the elementy school? Were they not praying hard enough?
He wasn’t the answer for people in a . Christian school. Kind of left his people high and dry there didn’t he
From the way you turned out, he doesn’t have much to be proud of. [….]
Responsible gun laws are the answer.
This is the all time laziest excuse for doing nothing.
[….] this is such a lame response
I hate when republicans invoke Christ and behave nothing like Him. Jesus would not recognize the Republican Party as Christians. Like the Bible says, “you’ll know them by their fruit.”
“What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him?” James 2:14
Obviously Jesus wasn’t the answer. Self serving politicians aren’t the answer either. None of you have shown that you actually care for the safety of children.
Electing lawmakers with the guts to do what’s necessary to save lives in this country is the answer. You’re not one of them. Vote him out Missouri 4th.
Jesus Christ – or any other “God” – has no place in our government.
We need change and policies not thoughts and prayers .
Why didn’t he just stop the shooter then? Letting those children die seems kind of cruel, doesn’t it?
The question is: “Who is someone currently very disappointed in Mark Alford?”
Jesus isn’t bringing back those 9 year olds
JFC you’re an awful person!!!!
Jesus Christ is the answer.
“Can you name a fictional character?” is the question.
If your response to another incident of children being murdered en masse is a make believe man in the clouds, please, do this country a favor and get out of politics because you clearly have no intention of creating positive change.
How many prayers before he actually answers you Mark?
So if there’s a fire, you just pray that Jesus puts it out? If a kid is choking, you just pray about it?
If that’s the case, why have guns at all? Just use prayer.
Okay, that’s a reference to smiting…
I can’t believe people voted for you.
Jesus likes guns and shooting kids?
Mark, we did not elected to Congress to preach the word of God. We asked you to change policy. If that means sponsoring legislation that takes guns out of hands, that’s what it means. It’s not about who loves Jesus Christ.
I am still trying to understand how you got elected.
You misspelled cheese and rice.
Would you wake up already? Ever wonder if God is trying to send our country a message or is that reserved for thinking God wants Trump to be President?
Oh. My. God.
Shut up you overgrown street reporter. You were terrible as a newscaster and now you are terrible as a Congressperson. I pray Jesus sends you a sign to mend the error of your ways.
I stopped believing in fairytales and fictional characters after the tooth fairy fucked me over at 8 years old.
How’d that work out for the poor families who lost their children at a Christian school?
I’m pretty sure our Jewish and Muslim friends would disagree MAGA Mark.
He’s not doing a thing to help his people. So I think we need another answer.
Helluva ratio ya got here buddy.
Your Jewish, Muslim, and Hindu constituents may need to be informed.
People like you are the reason thousands of Americans are leaving the church.
The degree of delusion that you and your ilk possess is nauseating. I hope Jesus can forgive you Mark, but it’s not likely.
Republicans not being NRA whores is the answer.
Evil, is the GOP being bought by the NRA. Evil is no red flag laws that would prevent the majority of mass shootings. Evil is the refusal to ban AR-15’s in our country because your hobby is more important than our safety. Evil is pretending guns aren’t the problem.
Red flag laws and banning AR-15’s is the answer. Stop the bs rhetoric. This trope is so freaking old. The facts are the facts. The US is a gun sick country, the ONLY gun sick country full of greedy, soulless politicians who have sold their souls to the NRA devil for power and $.
Apparently not considering where the shooting happened. Put down your Bible and do your God damn job
If Jesus Christ is the answer, then why do we need politicians? You were elected to do a job, not to use religion as a justification for inaction to suit your (GQP) agenda. [….]
Man if this imaginary guy is capable of stopping school shootings he sure seems like a pretty big asshole to let someone shoot up a building meant for children to worship him.
You are deluded. Utterly lost.
Your “thoughts and prayers” do sweet FA.
Open your eyes, look around. Look at countries with proper gun control, and look at the lack of school shootings.
You utter idiot.
No you dumbfuck forcing your fucking religion on us isn’t the answer. Legislating fucking gun laws is. Every other civilized country in the world does it to great effect. Just. Like. Healthcare.
Where the fuck has he been, Mark? If he is the answer, why do we need your incompetent self in Washington?
You are a Stupid Person.
Quit speaking out loud.
It annoys everyone else…
