If you missed this testimony "that the Senate Judiciary Committee should have heard" on last night's The Last Word, please take a look now. It was heart-wrenching, intelligent assessment and plea that everyone should watch, hear, respect, and remember.
It came from David Wheeler, the father of one of the Newtown massacre victims, little Ben Wheeler, at a public hearing held by the Connecticut legislature’s Bipartisan Task Force on Violence and Public Safety. He was not at the Senate Judiciary hearing, something that Lawrence O'Donnell rightly noted. He should have been.
Ben would have been proud.

Also on last night's show, Lawrence O’Donnell eviscerated gun hugger Gayle Trotter.
