    Someone whose job depends on a popularity contest rejects something 80-90% of the voters support?

    The usual bad reason would be money, but the firearms industry is small change compared to oil or Wall Street.

    Is it fear of a primary challenge, where the remaining 10% of the voters might swing an election by being the only ones to turn out?

    Freedom isn't free. Patriots pay taxes.
