If Democrats are smart, they’ll start pushing for new gun reform laws again today. Pull the GOP Obamacare opposition routine—make the Republicans and Red State Democrats vote it down 39 consecutive times. On the record. Watch how many of them wither away.

And Harry Reid needs to reform the filibuster. For real this time. Nuclear option. Make Mitch McConnell regret ever posting this Facebook post where he made light of life saving gun reform legislation.
