Default Assault weapon hearing

Has anyone heard anything about this? One of the gun rights pages I liked on Facebook said something about it airing and to tune in. Anyone know what channel or what time or even hear about this?

Folks you need to watch this hearing:

He tossed out the facts and they can not answer!

Can anyone summarize this hearing. I didn't see this thread until it was all over

This sums up the hearing pretty well for anyone that missed it.
