Wednesday's open line. And a call to and about arms

Posted By on Wed, Oct 7, 2015 at 4:03 PM

Here's the open line and today's video roundup. Also:

* A CALL ABOUT ARMS: From Talking Points Memo is news that People magazine has published the name and contact information of every member of Congress to use to urge them to act to do something about gun violence. You can imagine the bum's rush callers will get in Arkansas congressional offices, where the only thing more godly than guns is the Keystone pipeline.

If knocking your head against stone-filled heads is your thing, here's what they published for Arkansas:
