GET ME REWRITE: GOP members of Wisconsin State Legislature out of step with voters' views on gun policy

Reported in Senate, Assembly adjourn special sessions on gun control immediately after they begin.  (Wisconsin State Journal, 11/8/2019)

According to Merriam-Webster, the first known use of 'chickenshit as a usually vulgar term occurred in 1943.

Other coinages from the same year include:

  3. damage control
  4. dead duck
  5. falsie
  6. kiss of death
