Death of the Pro-Gun Democratic Party?

The new DNC chair being a gun controller does not bode well for us. The one thing that allows the Republicans to take us for granted is their knowledge that they don’t really have to be that pro-2A, they just need to be better than the other guy. With the past Congress having a lot of pro-gun Democrats, it actually forced the GOP to try a little. Tim Kaine was never all that pro-2A, but by the same token it wasn’t all that anti-2A either. The question going forward is whether the DNC chief will put gun control back on the Dem radar. If she does, look for things to get harder for us.

    Like when hiking in bear country… you don’t need to outrun the bear, just your hiking buddy.

    Polls are not in their favor to put gun restrictions back on the map. Right now they are doing what they can do deflect from the record spending, the failed cap and trade move, the hijacking of the health care industry, and the endless money printing. Next they’ll be touting Elvis and TuPac sightings as a way to ignore their past actions. I’d look for the right to dig in further on states rights and the constitution.

    Or it could be a fatal strategy and spawn a new crop of Pro-Gun Democrats to attempt to re-take seats from lackluster 2A Republicans.

    Or the gun issue could remain like the gay issue, where both sides hate them, but one side pretends to like them during election seasons.

    Isn’t that already how it works for us?
