Hayes: "Sometimes A Senseless Tragedy Is Just A Senseless Tragedy"
Bret Baier, host: "Steve, so this is setting up to probably be what is going to be what Juan's talking about."
Steve Hayes, Weekly Standard: "To a certain extent I think it's sad. There's this attempt, there's this eagerness to make things that are not political into the political and to do it right away. Mayor Bloomberg saying that within hours of the shooting. And to a certain extent you almost feel sorry for people who can't see the world beyond their little political prism. Sometimes a senseless tragedy is just a senseless tragedy and for people who talk for a living or people who run for office they feel an obligation to say something to try to explain the inexplicable when there is not ready explanation. Or when there may be an explanation but it's not yet accessible or available to people. But I think he was sort of an earlier indicator, this is likely where this debate is going and look, it's an inappropriate debate to have. This is what politics is about in America. I guess I just would hope that it wouldn't have happened three hours after the shooting."
