“We will pay for the funeral expenses of these poor victims and do everything we can to help their families,” Bondi continued.

“The state of Florida, we will pay for counseling for the surviving victims,” she continued. “We will pay for students who need counseling.”

The proposal received immediate criticism.

Vox writer Matthew Yglesias branded it the “Republican plan for mass shootings.”
