The tweet was in response to an Associated Press photo that shows school shooting survivors in tears after the Florida’s House voted down a bill to ban the sale of assault weapons.
In a separate post, also about the vote of Florida lawmakers, D’Souza tweeted, “Adults 1, kids 0.” He then criticized the media for exploiting the Parkland shooting that took the lives of 17 people, including 15-year-old Peter Wang.
