The usual cycle of posturing and posturing-shaming is playing out online in the wake of the Orlando horror. "You're politicizing the moment," all sides are charging.
Yes, we shouldn't run with speculation or incomplete information. The dots are still being collected, and not all of them are connected.
But I tend to think people *should* politicize tragedies. I mean, if you can't take a political stance in a moment like this, then why exactly are you a politician? If you can't examine your moral center in these circumstances, then when can you?
And basically the one thing we know for certain at this moment (12:55am ET, Sunday) is that this incident involved an assault rifle. So, if you've got something to say about guns, one way or another, now's the time to grab your soapbox and politicize away.
The conversation will continue, opinions may change as we talk to others, and it will be a difficult and nuanced (I pray) process. But it should start right now.
