Early Sunday morning a man walked into a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida and massacred 49 people and injured 53 others. It's a tragedy that has raised questions for the nation over the safety and treatment of the LGBTQ community, gun violence, immigration and terrorism. We'll raise those questions with our panel.
Also, Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell joined the 15-hour Senate filibuster on Thursday calling for a vote on gun control bills. Where does our state stand when in comes to gun control laws? And can we ever come to an agreement on this one very contentious issue?
