Well, at least the gun issue is getting some traction in this election. I know we kind of sneer as groups like the Brady Campaign grasp for relevance, but the silence on the gun issue has actually hurt us too. The media is burying it, largely because it hurts Obama more than it helps him.
You might think that any gun owner worth his salt knows Obama’s record, but trust me, they don’t. A lot of them are concerned about other issues this election, and hearing Obama say he supports the Second Amendment is enough for them to vote on other issues that are concerning them. This is a big problem in Pennsylvania, where the unions have been active conspirators in convincing their membership that Barack Obama is an OK guy on guns. In a state where a lot of gun voters overlap with union voters, that can hurt when combined with media silence.
