    It may not be wise at this time for a Democratic candidate from an average district to come out seeking repeal of 2A. (Although some in safe districts can, and might even benefit from it.)

    This doesn't mean that groups on DailyKos (and elsewhere) shouldn't seek it. We're not up for election. We can take a 30-year plan, we're not bound by 2-year (or 4-year or 6-year) cycles.

    So let's keep distinct what is politically expedient or easy in any given year, from the best way to reduce gun-violence in the long-run.
