A gunman in Orlando opened fire in a business Monday morning killing five people before taking his own life, causing several outspoken gun control activists to immediately turn to Twitter.

Coming just a week before the one-year anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting, yet another mass shooting in Orlando promises to propel the hot button of gun control further into the spotlight. From grass roots activists to bloggers, many are already politicizing the shooting in an attempt to further gun control ideology.

As of yet, no Florida politicians have released statements regarding gun control in Florida since the shooting Monday, despite several thousand people actively tweeting on the subject.
