Arizona leaders immediately took to Facebook and Twitter to offer prayers and condolences to the victims of a deadly shooting spree at a Texas church. While most expressed sadness, Arizona State Sen. Martin Quezada offered thanks to the NRA.
Immediately after the shooting, rabid and insensitive anti-gun groups attacked the church members on Facebook, and a “Devin Kelley Family Friendly Shooting Gallery” Facebook page popped-up. However, Quezada is the first elected representative to cross the line according to his constituents.
Sen. Quezada, who serves as the Senate Minority Whip, is also a member of the Pendergast Elementary School District Governing Board in Phoenix, Arizona.
