No one wants to be a cynic about an issue as important as gun violence, but it's hard to be optimistic when half of our elected officials won't even admit there's a gun problem. This is a digital exclusive.In case that's the decision announced today, I'm ready.

At the same time the Supreme Court announces a decision, the January 6th Committee hearings are going on. I'll have reactions to today's installment after an update on D.C. statehood for Flag Day. Stay tuned.
