Chelsea Handler blasts Republicans for Florida high school shooting, says they ‘have blood on their hands’

Just hours following a lone gunman open fired upon students in a Florida high school, eliminating at least 17, comedian Chelsea Handler took to Twitter to capitalize within the tragic incident and blame Conservatives, saying that they now “ have got blood on their hands. ”

Handler, a self-proclaimed politics activist, posted a tweet regarding midterm elections, urging voters “ to elect candidates that are not really funded by the NRA” and “ who won’ t allow children to go to school and get shot. ”

Tweets users fired back at Handler for using the shooting to advance the “ political agenda. ”

One consumer praised Republicans for defending weapon rights, arguing that guns on their own aren’ t the problem.  

The thought gunman was identified as 19-year-old Nikolaus Cruz. He was arrested soon after opening fire at  Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fl.
