Presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) offered a passionate rant about gun control where he mocked those offering "thoughts and prayers" with an expletive.

"So, when I'm president of the United States, I'm taking the fight to this issue like folks will never seen before because we're better than this as a country," Booker said.

"It's a uniquely American problem, no other country have this kind of carnage," he claimed. "More people in my lifetime have died in this nation, uh, due to gun violence than in all the wars and revolutionary wars to now.

"We're not gonna give thoughts and prayers, which to me is just bulls**t and I'm sorry to say that as a man of faith, but I was taught that faith without works is dead," Booker added, quoting the New Testament.

"We're gonna bring a fight with everything that I have to solve this problem because it's solvable," he concluded.

The most recent massacre to seize headlines occurred in Colorado when two suspects attacked a STEM school. One student died, and many others were injured.

Here's the video of Booker's expletive:

Booker released a plan to curb gun violence that included national registration, but it was overshadowed by criticism over his inability to answer if he would be willing to imprison gun-owners who refused to comply.
