    The next question to ask is how committed they are. Single-issue voters have a tactical advantage, since multiple-issue voters can be split. Fanatics have an advantage because they always show up to vote.

    The point of the diary is absolutely right, though. The disconnect between the NRA leadership and the people who think the NRA represents them is wide and deep and insufficiently well known.

      I don't want them to represent me.  I don't want them to be a PR firm.  I want them to put a stop to politicians who wish to do something that I, and millions of other Americans disagree with.

      If there were a better organization for this purpose, I would support it.  Currently, I don't see one.

      Gun restrictions are a loser of elections.  If the left keeps rubbing this lamp, eventually the genie will come out and nobody will like the result.
