US Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush, Brother of former President George Bush Jr, responded to the Oregon School massacre and gun violence by saying “stuff happens”. His full statement was “Look stuff happens, there’s always a crisis and the impulse is always to do something and it is not always the right thing to do,”
Mr Bush attempted to back away from his comments later on by saying that it wasn’t related to Oregon.
However, when President Obama was asked for a response to the quote, the President said he didn’t think the quote deserved a response.
Obama said “I don’t even think I have to react to that one I think the American people should hear that and make their own judgements based on the fact that every couple of months we have a mass shooting.”
