Jones Blasts Kimmel's Response to Texas Shooting: No 'Better Example of White Privilege'
The editor in chief of Campus Reform blasted Jimmy Kimmel Sunday over the talk show host's monologue following Friday's deadly shooting in Santa Fe, Texas.
Kimmel started his show by criticizing President Trump and other politicians that he said won't take action on gun control.
"They care more about the support of the NRA than they do about children," Kimmel said. "So they sit there with their hands in their pockets, pockets that are full with gun money, and they do nothing."
Friday's shooting at Santa Fe High School left 10 dead and another 10 injured.
"I've never seen a better example of white privilege than Jimmy Kimmel," said Lawrence Jones, editor-in-chief of Campus Reform.

"He's a rich white man that has security but he doesn't want other Americans to have security as well, have the Second Amendment."
Kimmel has used his national platform to offer his political opinions following tragedies like Friday's shooting or major events in Washington.

"I wish the left would be a little bit more honest," Jones added. "Can they just say they don't like the Second Amendment?"
Democratic strategist Antjuan Seawright defended former President Barack Obama's past steps taken against gun violence.
"He called for action and he led [like] leaders do," he said.
Seawright noted that he had lost a friend to gun violence: Clementa Pinckney, the pastor at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C.
"I think what Jimmy was doing was using his platform to say, 'We have to do something and hold these people accountable who hold [these] leadership [roles].’”
