Former Pennsylvania sen. Rick Santorum said on Sunday that the students should be collected for gun control instead, you learn to find CPR or their own way, in order to prevent a rampage.

“How about, if children, instead of looking to solve someone else’s your problem, something to do, perhaps under CPR classes or try to deal with situations, if it is a violent shooter, you can actually answer that” the Republican said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

The 2012 and 2016 presidential candidate, said, could, students work to stop bullying react in their communities, or to protect a shooter instead of questions, the approve of the legislature to legislation.

Santorum’s comments of outrage on social media prompt-a day after hundreds of thousands of young people and their supporters to push across the United States, stringent laws have demonstrated to combat armed violence.

Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., posted on Twitter: “Dear Rick Santorum: the CPR is good for the heart is shut down. Not good for the victim of several AR-15 bullets, as a rule, give 3 times the lethal energy on impact than a 9mm pistol bullet. AR-15 bullets to wipe out organs and cause so much bleeding that the victim very quickly.”

The demonstrations on Saturday, led the students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 people last month were killed.

“I think @Rick Santorum may need to learn CPR for the NRA following the by-elections,” says David Hogg, a #never again activist tweeted.

Santorum said that if the rallies are about more than politics, then the country needs to have a broader discussion that does not revolve around “fake gun-laws” that do not work.

“They took the action to ask someone to pass a law,” he said to the protesters. “You didn’t take action to say, `How can I deal with it, as an individual, with this problem?'”
