Debra Maggart was defeated by her primary opponent, pretty overwhelmingly. No word yet on whether her shrunken head will be added to the decor in Chris Cox’s office*. Word I heard from folks in Tennessee was that upon assuming a leadership position with the newly GOP house, she seemed to believe she could take gun owners for granted, and apparently wasn’t shy about telling them that. A strategy of primary challenging intransigent Republicans in an area where Democrats are also likely to be reasonable on the gun issue is a wise one.
* For our humor challenged friends in the gun control movement, this is what we call a joke. Chris Cox does not actually have a shrunken head collection in his office.
