It's Time to Have a Rational, Non-Emotional Discussion about the Second Amendment

Katz: "People who knew nothing about what happened in Las Vegas immediately had an opinion anyway."

Within hours of Sunday's mass shooting in Las Vegas, the public debate over gun control was back in full swing. The country was in a hyper-emotional state as pictures and audio of the massacre began pouring in, yet 24 hours later, authorities have offered few verified facts to the public, including Stephen Paddock's motivation for the attack.

Late night hosts, Indiana Congressman Andre Carson, and a failed candidate for President had all had their say by Monday night, once again exploiting a tragedy in order to push a political agenda. 

WIBC host Tony Katz addressed the emotional statements made by those who favor stricter gun legislation and urged his listeners to not fall prey to the temptation to engage in speculation.
