    of Democrats against gun control, it's defiantly a wedge issue.
    Just not of the type you are suggesting.

    I agree with Kos's diary. This election is all about gun control.
    Gun controllers wanted it.
    Gun Controllers got it.
    Now they get to own it.

    Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

    •  Bull, 32% of Democrats are not against ALL gun (4+ / 0-)

      control, just specific forms like AWB. But you know that, you just can't resist putting your spin on reality.

      Sorry conservatives, but Occam's Razor isn't a beard trimmer for jihadists. What it means is I don't have to accept your crazy-assed theories as an alternative to reality.

      •  "Spin on reality"? Apparently you haven't heard (0+ / 0-)

        the results of the recent gun control attempt. (Spoiler alert: lol)

        The president, himself, attached the AWB with B/Cs when he introduced the two together.

        It's kind of hard to argue that he isn't against banning guns when he specifically proposed banning guns.
        That is why the least popular Congress in history is more trusted than Obama on this issue.
        And that is why B/Cs failed....not because of the NRAs money, but because of the viewpoints of their constituents.

        And that is why gun controllers get to own the results of the next election.

        Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

          These are numbers from the recent FOX News poll

          But the poll also found that 82 percent of voters, including 77 percent in gun-owning households, still favor expanding background checks to private sales. And, more to point, 61 percent say they would be less likely to support a candidate who voted against expanding background checks versus the 23 percent who are more likely to support such a candidate. Sixty-eight percent say they are more likely to support a candidate who voted in favor of expanding background checks.
          When even FOX News debunks your claim you might want to re-think your position on the issue. Good bye and thanks for playing!

          •  Which part? (0+ / 0-)

            A majority (with 32% of democrats) against gun control? (CBS poll)
            The least popular Congress in history being more trusted than Obama on this issue? (Cited in a diary by MB)
            The president proposing a gun ban along with B/Cs?
            The embarrassing failure of B/Cs to pass (and the laugher of an attempt for the AWB)?
            The public's nary a fuck given for the demise of the aforementioned bills?

            I'm still playing.
            So are you.
            But don't worry. I'm certain that it will end around Nov of 2014.
            I look forward to your post-game commentary.
