Jon Stewart took the talking heads in the media to task for the claim that it's too early after the shooting in the movie theater in Colorado to talk about gun control.

STEWART: So you’re telling me it is too soon to even have a conversation about it? You’re telling me that to discuss the epidemic of gun violence in this country, for that, there is a waiting period. Yeah, I guess you’d hate to go into a conversation about guns all hot-headed and say something impulsively you’ll never be able to take back.

But, as he pointed out, it is acceptable to ask whether we should be allowed to ban masks in movie theaters, because we all know that's the real cause of the problem here, right?

Can you help us out?
