    •  Preventing more Columbine, Aurora, and Sandy Hook (0+ / 0-)

      massacres could mean just as much to other Dems.

      Is their line in the sand not as important?

      •  No, because it's not about fundamental rights (3+ / 0-)

        And while I support sane gun control, this just isn't a litmus-test issue for me. And i'm from Chicago, where most kids have been slaughtered than at Sandy Hook, even though they weren't as rich or white or killed all at once.

          gunfire is a fundamental right.

          Perhaps not a fundamental issue for you but it certainly could be for other progressives in the district.

          This is a difficult situation at best.
