“The gun lobby in America, led by the NRA, has bullied this nation’s politicians into cowardly, supine silence….This is a shameful situation that, frankly, has made me very angry — so angry, in fact, that some people are criticizing me for being too loud, opinionated, even rude when I’ve debated the issue of guns. But I make no apologies for that….It’s down to you. It is your country. These are your gun laws. And the senseless slaughter will only end when enough Americans stand together and cry, enough!”

“Man-made climate change happens. Man-made climate change kills a lot of people. It’s going to kill a lot more. We have laws on the books to punish anyone whose lies contribute to people’s deaths. It’s time to punish the climate-change liars….Denialists should face jail. They should face fines….I’m talking about Rush and his multi-million-dollar ilk in the disinformation business. I’m talking about Americans for Prosperity and the businesses and billionaires who back its obfuscatory propaganda….Those malcontents must be punished and stopped.”
— Gawker.com staff writer Adam Weinstein in a March 28 post, “Arrest Climate-Change Deniers.”
