Houston lawmaker: ‘Y’all been sending thoughts and prayers for two freaking decades’ – Houston Chronicle

A state representative from Houston is asking for more than just sympathy following the mass shooting in Sante Fe, Texas on Friday.

“Y’all been sending thoughts and prayers for two freaking decades now,” tweeted Rep. Gene Wu, who represents the Gulfton area. “Time to try something new.”

At least nine people are dead and 12 others injured after a gunman opened fire in Santa Fe High school, local authorities report.

Sante Fe is roughly 30 miles south of Houston. The small town of some 80,000 residents is now the scene of the deadliest mass shooting in America since February, when 17 people were killed in Parkland, Florida.
