    Markey, a U.S. congressman, has emphasized his stance on gun control – including his support for bans on assault weapons and high capacity magazines – throughout the campaign. here
    From my little weak suggestion which met with so much venom to a commanding lead with an active campaign for bans on assault weapons. And the gun nuts can deliver the votes? I couldn't be happier counting these chickens before they are hatched.

      on gun control during the campaign without varying his message at all.  His election will prove the NRA doesn't always win.

      But I don't like these polls that proclaim loudly and publicly that Markey has a commanding lead.  People convinced that he will win may decide their votes are not needed - that's dangerous.
