Chuck Todd: When Planes Flew Into WTC We Didn’t Say It’s Not The Time To Talk Terrorism

MSNBC: In the wake of the shooting in Las Vegas, Chuck Todd asks why is now not the right time to talk about how to deal with gun violence?

CHUCK TODD: In the wake of Las Vegas tonight I’m obsessed with timing.

We hear it after every incident like this and we’ve heard it again today. Now is not the time to talk about how to deal with gun violence. Now is not the time. Think about that. Why is now not the time?

When planes flew into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon did we say now is not the time to talk about terrorism or Homeland Security?

When our banking system nearly collapsed in 2008 did we say it’s not the time to talk about financial regulation?

When we heard that some 143 million people’s records had been breached at Equifax did we say now is not the time to talk about cybersecurity?

When we learned about Russia meddling and fake news and cyber bots did we say now is the time to talk about regulating Twitter and Facebook?

When North Korea launched longer-range missiles and claimed to have exploded a hydrogen bomb did we say now is not the time to talk about nuclear proliferation?

The point is, this is exactly the time to start talking about any issue, gun violence included. If we wait until cooler heads prevail on any of these we’d never talk about it.

And In fact, if we applied the same logic to every other debate and every other crisis that this country faces that we do to the gun debate we never would have focused on any of those issues either. Then again, maybe that is the point.
