25. An admission that the passage of the Feinstein non-ban cost a lot of Dem seats
and was a huge political mistake.

Clinton had been badly misled WRT the popularity of the firearms affected by the legislation, and WRT the irrelevance of hunting and hunting guns. He was advised that a pro-hunting, ban-nonhunting-guns stance would allow the DLC/Third Way'ers to have their cake and eat it too, and that was not in fact correct.
