CNN’s Don Lemon on Wednesday expressed total frustration over a common refrain paraded out in the aftermath of ever deadly mass shooting—namely, that it’s “too soon” to talk about gun control.
“If you look at any of the information, any of the studies, anything that’s been done about this, the only common denominator that separates from the rest of the world … the only common link is the number of guns that Americans are allowed to have,” Lemon explained. “And listen, you can save it, people who are saying, ‘Oh, it’s not the time to talk about guns,’ or whatever. Yes, it is. Shut up. I don’t want to hear it. It absolutely is.”
“Again, anyone with any sense knows that this is the one common denominator that America has, the sickness that we have, that we have these sorts of things, is having this much access to guns from people, especially for people who should not have access,” he continued.
“So don’t tell me that it’s not time to talk about it,” Lemon added. “You talk to those people down in Florida who lost their loved ones, they’ll tell you: it’s time to talk about it. My loved one would be here if this shooter did not have access to an assault-style rifle.”

‘Where’s Melania?’ The View hosts blister first lady for ignoring ‘bully-in-chief’ Trump’s attack on Greta Thunberg
A discussion on Donald Trump's bitter Twitter attack on 16-year-old environmentalist Greta Thunberg, after she aced him out of Time Magazine's Person of the Year, caught the attention of the panelists on The View, who hammered both the president and the first lady after they both protested the mention of their teen son Barron just weeks ago.
After co-host Joy Behar read the president's tweet from Thursday morning where he proclaimed, "So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!" she called the president out for being jealous of the teen for getting the Time magazine cover he so desperately wanted.
Supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy may have a friend
Do supermassive black holes have friends? The nature of galaxy formation suggests that the answer is yes, and in fact, pairs of supermassive black holes should be common in the universe.
I am an astrophysicist and am interested in a wide range of theoretical problems in astrophysics, from the formation of the very first galaxies to the gravitational interactions of black holes, stars and even planets. Black holes are intriguing systems, and supermassive black holes and the dense stellar environments that surround them represent one of the most extreme places in our universe.
