Prayers are clearly not going to help stop Amercian mass shootings

As El Paso and Dayton recover from the latest American mass shootings, the usual platitudes and bromides are being offered, including that good old chestnut "our prayers are with the families".
So, how are those prayers working for you, America? Maybe time to try a different tack? Or maybe you could pray in advance of the shootings, that might be more beneficial (but don't hold your breath on that one).
So, kudos to Rashida Tlaib (yes, that radical and refarious member of the infamous "Squad") for calling out First Daughter Ivanka Trump for her formulaic prayers tweet: "Your prayers aren't working. Try checking your dad on his tweets. 251 mass shootings in the U.S. in 216 days."
