In the wake of the worst gun massacre in U.S. history, Fox News host Howard Kurtz decided to slam Democrats for talking about sensible gun control. Well, that didn’t go very well.
“Gun control is a legitimate issue, but for the Dems already raising it after Las Vegas massacre, could we just have a day before plunging in,” Kurtz tweeted Monday morning.

Leading Democrats echoed “thoughts and prayers” that come with every shooting, but also demanded that Congress and the White House do something to stop them.
How long do we let gun violence tear families apart? Enough. Congress & the WH should act now to save lives. There's no excuse for inaction.

Our grief isn't enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.

Would you rather it wait until “#FullAutoFriday” because that’s an actual NRA hashtag?

No. We are completely upset seeing humanity terrorised by one with an automatic weapon. It is now time to do not pause! #stopNRA

No fuck you, it’s been many days since Sandy Hook and Pulse and if anything now it’s even easier to buy a gun.

Maybe we could "just have a day" if a day would ever pass in America without an innocent life lost to gun violence.
