3. depends on the individual voter

If I had to sell my guns, or take up poaching, to feed the family because Bain sent my job to China my mind would have already been made up even if the section was a Brady dream.

With wages dropping, while prices go up, people have less disposable income. If you can't afford the gas or ammo, you can't shoot. So while the Republican one might look like gunowner and Ruger's dream come true, but the rest of the platform will result in a defacto ban because of economics, like Somalia. Somalia's gun laws are stricter than some think, but since the average person, not to be confused with some warlord's retainers, can't afford a box of shells let alone the gun there is an economic ban. That was actually the point with the NFA transference tax. Before anyone says WTF GEJ? Remember, it didn't adjust for inflation.
