85. Well...

Why would you prefer Democrats not re-take the House in 2014?

That is precisely the question that could be asked of Bloomberg et al right now, as he and his supporters seek to purge the Democratic party of pro-gun Dems, and corral Dems in swing states into pushing gun bans.

The parallels between early 1994 and now are striking, except (1) the bans being floated now are vastly more restrictive than the 1994 Feinstein law, (2) the guns slated for banning are now the most popular civilian firearms in the United States, rather than niche enthusiasts' guns, and (3) gun owners are more aware of pending legislation than in 1994. Yeah, that's going to really help at the polls in '14.
