4/19 Casual Friday: Cliff Schecter & Jen Kirkman

April 19, 2013

Cliff Schecter, explained how the right is seizing on the crises in Boston to make stupid comments on guns, why the senate failed to pass control, the insane pro NRA proposal that got more votes in the Senate than background checks, why Democrats who voted against background checks should face primary challenges and why the Boston Marathon attackers could buy a assault weapon today.

Comedian Jen Kirkman, critiqued the media’s coverage of the Boston terror attacks and aftermath, why she doesn’t want to have kids, why people harass her about not having kids and she recommended the documentaryHit So Hard.  

On The Better Half: More on Boston, the right’s exploitation of the crises to push against gun safety, and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
