    I'm tired of hearing "I'm a liberal trapped in a red state, therefore I must be a libertarian about guns."

    •  It's interesting how the arguments have shifted (3+ / 0-)

      as universal background checks have been shown to be incredibly popular, everywhere. Gun enthusiasts who have been used to claiming the appeal to popularity for themselves are now in the position of dismissing it.

      I don't dismiss it, or obey it as a mandate. It's either helpful or an obstacle, but in politics it usually does matter. I'll be curious to see just how far the NRA and its few remaining allies will go against it.

      We demanded a plan to reduce gun violence. Now it's time to demand a vote.

        but if I ever do, I'll let you know.

        Your table with the phone numbers is great.
