Republican statement on mass shootings : "We have sadly seen violence from ideological extremists on both sides and that is completely unacceptable and must be condemned,"
Anyone care to point out who in the Greatest Generation would disagree with those points?

The whole " both sides " argument is simply an extension of Trump's " good people on both sides" position.
It is a false equivalency to suggest that both left and right extremists are equally responsible for mass shootings. From the article:
" The GOP's response to elevate incidents of "violence on the left" clashes with a well-documented rise in hate crimes and white nationalism on the far-right."
" Extremist-related murders have spiked in the last year, according to the Anti-Defamation League, and the vast majority " 73 percent " are committed by right-wing extremists and white supremacists. Not a single extremist-related murder in the United States last year was carried out by "the left.""
"FBI Director Christopher Wray recently told Congress "a majority of the domestic terrorism cases we've investigated are motivated by some version of what you might call white supremacist violence.""
So to answer your question, assuming the " Greatest Generation" were interested in understanding the whole issue and not the partisan version of the issue, the whole generation would agree that violence from any source is wrong and that ideologically driven violence suffered by the US today can be attributed primarily to extreme right wing/white supremacist views.
Why would you support a party on this issue which, in it's own self-interest, adopts a policy of deliberately misleading the electorate on a matter of such nationally emotional importance?
