    Are you sure you're right about enjoying support from gun owners just because he signed a couple Acts of Congress?

    Throughout Obama's first term, the NRA was convincing its zealous handmaidens that Obama was - really, really - coming for their guns. Against the evidence and the reality.

    As for who voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012, I wouldn't be surprised if he got votes from gun owners, some of whom - God forbid! - might be good Democrats, even Progressives. (Circumspice.) I doubt very much, however, that he got them because he signed those two Acts of Congress.

    I've heard from youth that you pick your fights. The President has picked his. Dissing him for being later to the party than you are seems kinda weak, on this issue at least.

    2014 IS COMING. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!
