The moment is over. Poof! Done. Gone. Bang! Actually, scratch that last one. Either way, you just missed your chance to talk about gun control. Faster than emptying a magazine with the help of a bump stock, the moment has passed.

Look, everybody knows that right after the shooting is not the time to bring up gun control. It’s insensitive to the victims and makes you look like you’re taking advantage of a tragedy. And waiting until the story is out of the news cycle is way too late since it will not make a sizable impact. So when is the right time? Just then. You missed it.
Now it’s too late. If another mass shooting isn’t about to happen in a few moments, you’re really going to look like you’re crying wolf. So better luck next time catching the moment where it is OK to talk gun control, and remember, no matter what you do, it is never OK to talk mental health.
