In brief: Gabe Ortiz wrote a moving op-ed in the hours following the Orlando shooting; I’m grateful that he was willing to spend some time with me during such a hard week. Joshua Eaton’s work on gun laws and dedication to investigative journalism is a public service. He went hard in on the legislators sending “thoughts and prayers” to the Orlando victims’ families who have taken donations from pro-gun organizations.
