Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren is no stranger to controversy, often wading into the most hotly debated topics of the day with her no-nonsense style. Naturally, she discussed the contentious discussion surrounding the gun debate in the wake of another tragic shooting this week. And while everyone shares a desire to see horrible mass shootings come to an end, there is much disagreement on how to actually do that.
She took the opportunity last night to address the situation and, at least in part, those who are lashing out at “thoughts and prayers” in the wake of the tragic school shooting in Parkland, Florida this week. It’s a topic Faithwire has covered on multiple occasions, including when Candace Cameron Bure said that if you don’t start with prayer, there is no power.
“I can’t imagine your pain following this tragedy,” Lahren began before expressing frustration that there were so many warning signs that were not investigated thoroughly. “The kid wasn’t even allowed to carry a backpack into school for fear he’d harm someone. So why in the world was he not monitored more closely?”
Tomi Lahren: "Thoughts and prayers might seem laughable to some of you. But maybe, just maybe, more Jesus, more God, more prayer and more compassion is what we are missing."http://insider.foxnews.com/2018/02/16/tomi-lahrens-final-thoughts-florida-school-shooting-calls-gun-control

Many people are calling for ‘something to be done’ to stop gun violence, but most do not have a concrete solution as to what, exactly, should be done.
“You want a solution?” Lahren began. ” Truth is, maybe there isn’t one. Evil will always be in this world, and evil people will always find evil ways to do evil things,” she said before offering one of her own. “The solution isn’t to start stripping away rights. What we ought to do is make it easier for law enforcement to engage and evaluate individuals who exhibit warning signs, like making graphic threats online or posting disturbing images,” she explained before gearing up for one, final thought.
“You know, thoughts and prayers might seem laughable to some of you. But maybe, just maybe, more Jesus, more God, more prayer, and more compassion is what we are missing,” Lahren concluded.
