On Sunday, there was a terrible massacre outside the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.
One gunman started shooting from the hotel and killed 50 people and more than 400 were injured.
The politicians attacked immediately by pushing their gun control agenda via social media.
According to Western Journalism, this massacre inflicted more casualties comparing to any mass shooting in the American history. This caused gun control advocates to create a Twitter trend using the hashtag #GunControlNow.
On Monday morning, Senator Elizabeth Warren tweeted: “Tragedies like Las Vegas have happened too many times.” She insisted: “We need to have the conversation about how to stop gun violence.”
Tragedies like Las Vegas have happened too many times. We need to have the conversation about how to stop gun violence. We need it NOW.

Many people responded to her politicization of the tragedy and she was considered as an insensitive person. On Twitter user wrote: “Can’t you wait at least half a day before politicizing?”

Another user tweeted: “Bad guys that don’t follow the laws are gonna tell you where to shove that brilliant notion.”
Furthermore, The Daily Wire published an article in which the author and syndicated columnist, Ben Shapiro noted three reasons why people shouldn’t open a conversation connected to gun control. The first reason is that the motive of the gunman, Stephen Paddock is still unknown.
Next reason is the lack of information of where the gunman acquired those 10 weapons that were found in his hotel room.
His third reason is that “making policy on the heels of horror is rarely wise.” Shapiro wrote: “Good policy is good regadless of timing; bad policy is bad regardless of timing. But when something horrific occurs, it’s in the interest of those pushing a related policy to suggest that those who oppose the policy somehow don’t care enough about victims.”
He also advised Warren and the others who are trying to politicize the Mandalay Bay massacre. He wrote: “Now is a good time to shut up. Now is a time to contemplate the nature of human evil, to gather information and to stay silent. Now isn’t a time to push your favorite policy talking point, or to use people’s justifiable emotional response as gas in the tank for your legislative push.”
He finished by saying: “We have a republic, not a democracy, in order to separate emotion from policy. Let’s not fall into the trap of re-injecting it out of supposed moral righteousness. If your policy is a good one, it’s still worth discussing without exploiting national heartbreak.”
