Four days later Four students were shot dead In the deadliest school shooting in America since 2018, he posted the following prayer for Santa Claus on Twitter:
– Merry Christmas! note. Santa, please bring ammo.

Among those who responded forcefully was Fred Gutenberg, who lost his daughter during the Parkland school massacre. He shares a picture of his late daughter Jaime with her gravestone and addresses himself directly to the top politician:
-RepThomasMassie Since we first share family photos, here’s mine. This is one of the last photos she took of Jaime, and the other one from her grave site after the Parkland school shooting, Gutenberg tweeted in her response and adds:
– The Michigan school shooter and his family used to take pictures like yours.
A person calling himself Bex responded by posting a photo of the four victims of Tuesday’s attack, writing simply:
Their parents will disagree.
Many gun owners also punish Massey for what they call a “gun fetish.”
– I’m a gun owner, but I don’t understand gun fetish from @repThomasMassie. Seems very unethical this week, tweets a man named Steve Metz.
Piers Morgan, the former British talk show host, was also shocked. Morgan, who is not known for his controversial views, seems to think Massey is going too far:
– A week after another horrific school shooting in America, a member of the US Congress posted this. Unusually, Morgan writes, I am devoid of words.
