Why? Have you been drinking the NRA Kool-Aid?
Edited on Thu Feb-26-09 08:48 AM by primavera
Despite what the NRA would have you believe, public opinion polls consistently show a very solid two-thirds majority of respondents in this country favor strengthening gun control laws. So why is it political suicide for a public official to comply with the clear wishes of the majority of his constituents? Because the NRA doesn't want him to? I thought we were in favor of reducing the influence of lobbyists, or is that only when you don't agree with the lobbyists?
