"But the fact is," she says, "I don't know what they're doing. I see they're listening, but we're in a post–thoughts and prayers society. Thoughts and prayers just don't fucking cut it anymore." She quickly adds, "I'm not condemning this current administration. I'm just very curious as to what kind of real steps they can take."
