    Now, not so much.

    The ads running for Gomez in Mass Senate right now distinguish him from Markey on health reform - oh, Gomez is for it (sure he is), but unlike Markey, he wouldn't have put the IRS in charge. See what's going on there?

    So go to a place where liberals and conservatives both post, like HuffPo and read the Snowden stories...

    "Hahaha, and you stupid libs want to give the government access to all of our health information through Obamacare!"

    and, more to the point of your diary...

    "And you libs want to register our guns?"

    Somebody took a 7-year-old story and breathed fire into the anti-government movement, and the end result ain't gonna be what the civil libertarians here and elsewhere think it's going to be. No, this NSA and IRS bullshit is going to be the death knell of any gun regulations, and going to give Republicans yet another cycle of instilling fear over Obamacare.
