    The NRA, its manufacturer/distributor sponsors and its followers make guns a "single issue" and do not lobby anything else. We, on the other hand, care about a huge list of issues, so it's much easier for a legislator to personalize and react to their message than to ours.

    We have to be sure the gun-lobbied legislators also realize we will vote this issue. "Score" it is the term they use.

    And remember, Harry Reid is not very sympathetic to gun control. He is unlikely to use the powers of his office even as much as he did with the filibuster issues ... if that puts Reid on Gun Violence in context!

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