    ...don't mean nearly as much in off-year elections.
    Remember 2010? We lost the House.

    Call me when we get it back.

    Things are more like they are now than they've ever been before...

      better get ready to get punched in the mouth.

      I've seen a lot of recent reports showing that Dem gun ownership is up 8% to 40% since December, reports that public support for gun control has already peaked and is lessening.  Even this morning the NPR report made a statement to this effect before cutting to Obama's MN visit yesterday and then they played the report with him only talking about background checks.

      Support for bans, capacity limits, registration, insurance, all that nonsense is rapidly waning.  Congressional support is not there.  I see more and more expert and educated opinion pieces in the local paper from both sides of the political isle explaining why restrictions are meaningless,  Biden recently admitted that his proposals won't do anything to reduce violence.

      Gun control was never a winner and now it is rapidly becoming a sore loser.
