Yep, we talked about guns again today. Greg Dworkin took us through the Abbreviated Pundit Roundup, which included yesterday's Senate gun policy hearing as well as Newtown's town hall on the subject, plus the "controversy" over whether or not 12/14 parents were heckled in the hearings in the state capital the other day. The crazy stories keep pouring in, too. A hunting accident that ended up shooting a kid on a school bus in the back, for instance. And five people who've dropped or forgotten their guns in bathrooms in the space of a month! We also took a look at TPM's reporting on the movement to nullify federal gun laws, and The New Republic's on how to build better gun policy. Then we checked in on the economy, looking at the connection between government spending cuts and the 4th quarter contraction, and the looming sequestration, and a peek at what's new and coming up later at Daily Kos.
