Jackson Lee: We can't have this. CHris Hayes: You have it. What are you going to do about it?

Just now RE people refusing to testify. CHris specifically asked what are you going to do about people refusing to answer or to testify? SHe didn't answer. SHe walked around how outrageous it was and said nothing about what they might do about it. I wish Chris had pushed the question. I wish all the media would.

Anyone have another viewpoint on this?

Oregon electeds call it gun safety legislation. Much less inflamatory to gun lovers

than gun control. I was at a town hall about six months ago when our state reps and senator were obviously just transitioning to the new terminology as several times they would start to say gun control and then correct themselves. There were a couple of gun lovers there accusing our electeds of wanting to take their guns away, but the reply was no, we just want gun safety.

It may seem like just semantics, but I thought it was much more effective framing. Lakoff would approve.
