Seahawks Russell Wilson and Doug Baldwin weigh in on the NFL's new policy for players who want to protest during the national anthem. Amazon and Starbucks kick in for an initiative to overturn Seattle's head tax on major businesses. A measure to impose new gun safety law gets a couple of million-dollar contributions. And a trip to Iowa fuels speculation of a presidential run for Governor Jay Inslee.

Ross Reynolds talks over those stories and more of the week's news with KIRO 7's Essex Porter, former Washington state Republican party chair Chris Vance and The C is For Crank's Erica C. Barnett.
