What if Newtown had happened before the election?

Would the media coverage and response of the political class been the same?

I've been following the long-dormant discussions of gun rights/gun control. I heard Obama and elected officials weigh in, showing some bravery. I saw the cover pix on Daily News and New York Post (Rupert's titles) calling La Pierre a 'gun nut' and 'loon'.

Can't help but speculate how the Dem/Rep campaigns would deal with this horror if they were afraid of losing close votes in our polarized nation. Would they tiptoe around topics of violence, access to guns, the NRA and Second Amendment rights.

Timing is everything these days.
