WASHINGTON, DC. - "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd slammed the Trump administration for saying it is not the time to discuss gun control, following the mass shooting in Las Vegas that took the lives of at least 59 people and injured more than 500 others.

"When planes flew into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon did we say now is not the time to talk about terrorism or homeland security?" Todd asked Tuesday on MSNBC. "When our banking system nearly collapsed in 2008 did we say now is not the time to talk about financial regulation?"

Todd listed several more issues, including the Equifax security breach, North Korea launching longer range missiles, and Russia's interference via social media during the 2016 election.
