In South Korea, netizens are sharing varying reactions to the tragic news. The majority of the talk regarded the lack of gun control in the U.S. 

Comments stated, 

"Control those guns please..."

"Still not going to do much on gun control? U.S will go down due to guns."

"Obama tried so hard for gun control but he was blocked by the arms industry. The results (of the limitations in gun control) will lead to great sacrifices."

"I wondered if gun control will become more strict in the U.S. now"

"Thank God it's illegal to own a gun in our country even after going through tremendous wars."

"This makes me realize how safe South Korea really is."

"If our country didn't have gun control then more devastating disasters probably would've happened several times.."

"But they will not do anything on gun control even after this crisis. No matter if shootings occur again and again, the U.S. government will be lobbied by the arms industry. It's funny. And Trump is there saying he's blocking entrance to U.S. in order to protect the citiziens? hahaha"

 Some netizens talked about President Donald Trump

"The person with the title President was tweeting words of encouragement in midst of all this.. Of course, he'll engage in various interviews, etc but I don't know. What is up with the social media, you know?"

"The shooter was probably a Trump supporter."

Out of all, many harshly criticized the shooter and expressed sorrow at the loss of innocent lives.

"He turned it into a sea of hell in just a moment. He's no other than the devil. He'll never be forgiven even after death. It's so unfortunate such (shooting) incidents are reoccuring."

"I saw the videos and it was horrible and so scary. It seems like a lot of people were injured or even died. Condolences to the victims."

"Only the innocent people were damaged by this. Fighting.."

Our condolences to the victims and their families.
