Surprise, surprise. Missouri’s state representatives are coming for our rights—again. This time, the threat comes in the form of an ultra-archaic resolution pushed forward by Republican Missouri Rep.

None of this is normal

After the shooting at a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs this weekend, President Obama said, “This is not normal. We can’t let it become normal.” He was specifically pleading — yet again — for the nation to not accept another instance of mass gun violence.

Watch: Seth Meyers fact-checks that chart at the Planned Parenthood hearing
