The Guns N' Filibusters storyline isn't quite finished, but we used it as an avenue for a little expansion on the subjects today. Greg Dworkin joined us for discussion of his Sunday Kos piece on moving from reference to "Sandy Hook" or "Newtown" toward "12/14" instead, as well as recent Republican attempts at joining the immigration reform debate, and the world of non-stupid parties. Afterwards, more discussion of the week's supply of #GunFAIL, and an invitation to a whole new world of #GunFAIL in the new state law in Florida forbidding localities from restricting gunfire on private property of any size. Also, the DC Circuit court's decision that appears poised to invalidate decades of practice in recess appointments. How does that fit into the current bouts of "constitutional hardball?"
