  •  Has anyone in congress ever been voted out... (0+ / 0-)

    because of a gun issue vote?

    Just wondering.

      they have been voted out because they failed to represent their constituents, a somewhat different issue.

      And that's the larger issue, election-wise. That's where they can be beaten. On issue after issue, the GOP has chosen the corporations and their lobbyists over the priorities of their states and districts - they have sold their floor votes for campaign contributions or other favors rather than listening to the interests of their citizens.

      THIS is where they are vulnerable. THIS is where they can be voted out.

      It's happened MANY times...
