How Should Christians Respond to Mass Shootings?

So here we are again, grieving for those whose lives have been forever altered by the senseless violence perpetrated by a sick and sinful individual. Too often, we offer thoughts and prayers because it just seems like the right thing to do rather than because our hearts genuinely mirror the brokenness felt by our heavenly Father. Let’s not forget that the Lord to whom we pray is grieving just as strongly as those who were harmed by the shooting, and a quick prayer devoid of any real intent or purpose is likely to ring as hollow to him as it would to those mourning in Highland Park today.
