COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Former and current state politicians have taken to social media to share their reactions to two mass shootings over the weekend that have left many Americans shocked and saddened.

On Saturday, Democratic Rep. James Clyburn asked, “when is enough enough?”

The next day, after the Ohio shooting, he tweeted again saying, "we must address terrorism and its causes.”

Republican Rep. Ralph Norman also weighed in on Twitter, calling the shootings terrorism.

Former State Rep. and outspoken Democrat Bakari Sellers said, “Trump said some words. Trump has no moral authority. This is my analysis. That’s it.”

While Congressman Will Timmons said, “This is not who we are as a country... We must do better.”

Saturday on Twitter, Democratic Rep. Joe Cunningham also called for action.
