      it's not the NRA that matters, it's the millions of gun owners who vote.

      States' rights? Corporate rights? Militia rights? Government rights? Hell no! Only individuals have rights. Proud lifelong human supremacist.

        First, I was responding to the comment about the alleged influence of gun control in the 1994 election; the link to Part III that I provided shows conclusively that it simply was not true, Bill Clinton's comment notwithstanding.

        The rest of the series, and in particular Part IV, deals with the broader constituency beyond NRA members, and completely debunks the CW that gun owners will not support regulatory measures.

        Have a look - you will be surprised....

          was nothing but masturbatory wishful thinking, I don't think it's worthwhile to read more.

            •  I trust Clinton's judgement (0+ / 0-)

              I am old enough to remember analysis of the 1964 election, including people claiming to prove that in the United States there are only a couple of million conservative voters.

              We can have change for the better.
