New York Daily News criticizes Republicans: 'God Isn't Fixing This'

(New York Daily News)

WASHINGTON (WJLA) - The New York Daily News released a controversial front page in the wake of Wednesday's mass shooting in San Bernardino, California. The Thursday headline reads "God Isn't Fixing This."

"As the last batch of innocent Americans are left lying in pools of blood, cowards who could truly end gun scourge continue to hide behind meaningless platitudes," the cover reads.

The New York Daily News says, "White House hopefuls on the Democratic side of the aisle called for stricter gun laws in the wake of the shooting in San Bernardino that left at least 14 dead. But after yet another mass shooting in America, GOP presidential contenders were conspicuously silent on the issue of gun control. Instead, the Republicans were preaching about prayer."

The article goes on to quote tweets from GOP presidential candidates like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Jeb Bush and Lindsey Graham about "prayers" for the victims of the San Bernardino shooting.

Meanwhile, Democratic presidential candidates like Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders took a different stance and called for stricter gun laws.

President Obama pushed the need for stricter gun laws in an interview in response to the shootings saying, "'There are some steps we could take--not to eliminate every one of these mass shootings--but to improve the odds that they don't happen so frequently. Common sense gun safety laws, stronger background checks."
