Suddenly the GOP agrees that prayers are not enough

Yesterday's horror show is a perfect storm for Republican hypocrisy on gun issues. When everyone thought the shooter(s) were ango-American, the GOP offered nothing but prayers. Now that it turns out they have scary mooslim names and and that they traveled to Saudi Arabia, I bet the GOP presidential candidates will have no trouble coming up with concrete actions the country should take to deal with the problem.

Shorter version
Anglo shooter: There's nothing you can do, we must protect our rights under the constitution.
Scary middle eastern shooter: We must do something. Sacrificing our civil liberties is a small price to pay to protect ourselves from this menace.
