Tonight, Lawrence chats with Politics Daily White House Correspondent Alex Wagner about Sarah Palin's words to a convention of international big-game hunters this weekend in Reno, Nevada. Journalists were officially banned from the event, but Newsweek's Andrew Romano was able to buy a ticket and listened as Palin — herself a hunter — let loose on fears the Obama administration will take a new look at gun and ammunition control. After offering condolences to the Tucson shooting victims, Romano reports Palin then added "I'm knowing too, though... how important it is, for their sake, for America's sake, that we do not allow the evil acts of one mentally deranged murderer [to] change America's way of life. We must not allow this tragedy to stifle our constitutionally protected rights, including our Second Amendment rights. Beware of what's coming."
She also referred to a proposed media boycott of Palin led by Dana Milbank of the Washington Post. Palin says she'd welcome such a lack of attention "because there's a lot of chaos in Cairo, and I can't wait to not get blamed for it — at least for a month."
