simple question

or maybe not so simple, but it is a question for both sides. What would cause you to change your own view on guns and what gun laws should be, or change your opinion of what the party platform should read?

Time to buy Ruger and Glock stock

stock up on ammo.

It was the first meeting between Mr. Bloomberg, the billionaire media mogul, and Mr. Romney, the former chief executive of a private equity firm.
Over coffee and juice, the two discussed several staples of Mr. Bloomberg’s agenda in Washington over the last decade: the economy, immigration, education and even gun control (a topic on which the two man are not entirely on the same page).

During one of the debates, all Obama has to do is ask Mitt "which one of us signed an AWB?"
This is probably off topic but how will the NRA (and the kind of right leaning to centrist gun owners in general) react if Bloomberg endorses Mitt? Will they stay home or vote their wallet?

I know this is off topic, but one of the readers comments:
Bloomberg has ruled, not governed, as a right wing ideologue who uses social issues, such as gay rights and gun control, to give New Yorkers the impression that he's liberal. He's decimated public education, attempted to privatize everything that moves (remember Stephen Goldmith, the Deputy Mayor and his snow removal policies), hired consultants with no-bid contracts costing the city billions, presided over many scandals, like CityTime, that he bought his way out of, has attempted to create a "nanny state" with his paternalistic view of others, and never let democracy get in the way of a third term. I could go on! He and Willard have a lot in common, much more than their wealth. However, remember the words of Balzac- "Behind every fortune there is a great crime."
I really don't follow NYC issues, but it does not surprise at all. Plutocrats want power for themselves and not the serfs. That includes, to kind of paraphrase Mao, the power that comes out of a barrel of a gun.
