9. Hopefully, Schoenke will see the futility of national gun control legislation...
The Democratic Party and its candidates should move toward a local outlook with regards gun-control. This would remove gun-control as a damaging national policy with consequences to both national and local candidates, and toward a local policy where local candidates can rise and fall based upon their respective stands on gun-control. Any local measures can rise and fall based on their constitutionality.

Thanks for taking the initiative.
