Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum is catching heat, to say the least, for suggesting students learn CPR to prepare for school shootings instead of protesting gun laws. On CNN's "State of the Union," Santorum remarked "How about kids instead of looking to someone else to solve their problem, do something about maybe taking CPR classes or trying to deal with situations that when there is a violent shooter that you can actually respond to that.”

Instead, he suggested they find out what they can do as individuals to deal with gun violence when it strikes. Santorum's comments came one day after thousands of students took part in rallies across the country calling for an end to gun violence in schools.

Interviewer Van Jones replied to the comments by saying he wanted his kid to focus on school work not survival.

Of course, social media had a lot to say about Santorum’s comments, including quite a few doctors that slammed him and described gunshot wounds.
