An active-shooter situation in San Bernardino, California, has once again thrust gun violence into the presidential race.
The shooting in San Bernardino comes less than a week after a single shooter entered a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado, killed three, and wounded nine more.
That shooting, fraught with abortion- and gun-rights politics, led to quick responses from Democratic presidential candidates. But many Republican candidates stayed silent or were limited in their responses.
The response was somewhat different on Wednesday, when Republican candidates were quick to respond to news of the San Bernardino shooting as reports of it spilled out.

Some candidates hadn't tweeted about San Bernardino at all as of about 5 p.m. ET Wednesday. They include Marco Rubio, and Carly Fiorina.
None of those three tweeted about Colorado Springs, either. Fiorina talked about the shooting the Sunday afterwards on Fox News Sunday.
"This is a tragedy. It's obviously a tragedy. Nothing justifies this. And presumably this man who appears deranged, if nothing else, will be tried for murder, as he should be. But it's a tragedy, especially on a holiday weekend," she said, warning against what she called left wing efforts to "immediately begin demonizing the messenger," by tying the shooting to conservative rhetoric critical of Planned Parenthood.
