The appropriate statement by which a reference to a mass shooting must be concluded as written in the holy guidebook Guns & Ammo and endorsed by the great and divine church of the NRA.

This statement may be substituted for action and its utterance is believed by scientists to create new quantum realities in which that action was taken.

Failure to utter thoughts and prayers after referencing a shooting may result in sensible gun control legislation and/or improvements to American mental health care systems.
"Did you hear? Some kids got shot at school today! Thoughts and prayers!"
"Oh my - that person is shooting up a concert! Thoughts and prayers!"

When you hear about a tragedy that is not affecting you at all but you still have to act like you care so you say "Thoughts and prayers" to pretend you actually give one shit.

a word that's usually used when people don't give a sh*t, particularly the republican party when a school shooting happens AGAIN.
Media: "Oh no, 18 students just got shot and 4 killed at Oak Elementary! We have to have gun laws!"

RP: "No we don't. Thoughts and prayers to all those in the shooting."
