It didn’t take long for the Monday shooting at Ohio State University to turn into a gun control rallying cry.
Minutes after news broke that there was an active shooter, Twitter users called for stronger gun control and blamed the attack on lackluster laws.
The school is a “gun free zone,” and instructed students to “run hide fight” and stay in place.
At least eight people have been taken to the hospital, with one critical and another seven stable, according to the fire department. There are also reports at least one person was attacked with a machete.
Columbus police have confirmed one shooter has been killed; police are searching for a second.
