Washington's Orlando Response

Melinda Henneberger, editor-in-chief of Roll Call, talks about last night's senate filibuster for gun control, the actual likelihood of such laws passing, and how the presidential candidates have responded to the Orlando attack.@BrianLehrer I couldn't stop watching. It was fascinating and inspiring. Also a Senator said it was 'organic'. I'd like to hear more. — The End Table (@end_table) June 16, 2016@BrianLehrer@rollcall@MelindaDC My husband and I scrambled to find CSPAN so we could watch the filibuster. Yup, we finally lost it — SuBee (@SuBee81) June 16, 2016@BrianLehrer THAT is a NRA talking point, which is why Murphy's want will go nowhere.... — jamesb (@jamesbPDog) June 16, 2016@jamesbPDog@BrianLehrer It's a liberal one also. It's as dumb as the no-fly list. — ESPN First Jake (@JakeMHS) June 16, 2016
