Fox News host Howard Kurtz was quick to slam Democrats for talking about sensible gun control after the Las Vegas shooting death toll increased to make it the largest mass shooting in U.S. history.

"Gun control is a legitimate issue, but for the Dems already raising it after Las Vegas massacre, could we just have a day before plunging in," Kurtz tweeted Monday morning.

As a fact check, there is a mass shooting nearly every day in the United States. Out of the 275 days that have passed so far in 2017, Sunday's shooting at Mandalay Bay was one of 273 shootings in the country.

Leading Democrats echoed "thoughts and prayers" that come with every shooting, but also demanded that Congress and the White House do something to stop them.

The internet was quick to call out Kurtz for his statement, asking how he can continue to make such a declaration after so many mass shootings.
