That outrage quickly turned to silence when reports came out that a school resource officer shot and killed the shooter before he could do more than injure two students.

Just as reports were coming in, Emma Gonzales, who is perhaps the most well know anti-gun student activist Tweeted out her sympathies along with a call to action.

David Hogg, who has also been extremely vocal, re-tweeted a tweet from his classmate Jaclyn Corin, but has otherwise been silent.

Once reports began coming out that the shooter was stopped by an armed resource officer, the Tweets stopped, and none of the students chose to acknowledge the officer’s heroic actions.

Gonzales has been a vocal advocate against having guns in schools. In an interview with 60 Minutes, her main point against teachers being armed was that her school ran out of paper.

Senators such as Louisiana’s John Kennedy questioned Canterbury’s evasive testimony in July.

I like straight answers, and you are being evasive,” said Kennedy. “You have been nominated to run ATF.

Canterbury had been asked numerous times about his policy views on matters such as banning so-called “assault weapons.”

The ATF has tremendous power over the American gun industry and Second Amendment community, and in some cases have banned previously legal forms of weapons with impunity. Some firearms enthusiasts have become increasingly skeptical of the agency in recent years, and conservatives have sought additional oversight. High-level ATF leadership have spoken of what they believe to be a conspiracy against their agency, further alienating gun rights supporters.
