Just a few hours after the tragic death of two reporters shot live on the air, journalists took to Twitter to politicize the attack, blame the NRA and aggressively push a pro gun-control agenda.

 

Vox editor Ezra Klein took to Twitter to talk about gun violence in America, even to say that we wouldn’t have as many suicides if it weren’t for guns.

For Ezra, the reason would be too little gun control.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe pushed for gun control in an interview with WTOP just after the attack.

“It goes back to what I’ve talked about for a long time,” McAuliffe said. “There are too many guns in the hands  of people who should not have guns. This is why I’ve long advocated for background checks. I’m a gun owner. I’m a hunter, but you know, I went through background checks myself to get it. We’ve got to, in America, We’ve got to come together. There is too much gun violence in the United States of America.”
