Should The Charleston Church Massacre Be Used For Political Gain?

Is it appropriate for the media, President, or any other legislator to capitalize on someones tragedy by using it as an opportunity to leverage a piece of legislation? I imagine there are numerous opinions each with good reason for or against. However, as I watched the news reports today on the Charleston Church killings I couldn’t help but feel a certain level of attachment to the victims and their families. Then I noticed their was an abrupt change in the reporting from the story at hand to gun control legislation. It was tacky and took away from the loss that these families are enduring. Timing is everything and I would have to say that was a classless move.
