94. will no one answer?
Gun control costs us votes
And especially considering that there is no evidence supporting that these additional gun control laws have done anything to reduce violent crime, it is quite prudent to drop it, adopt a serious pro-gun rights stance and use it against the gun-grabbing GOP.


Opposition to the violation of women's rights costs you votes.
And especially considering that there is no evidence that defending women's rights has done anything to reduce ... oh, let's say, single parenthood and child poverty ... it is quite prudent to drop it, adopt a serious anti-choice stance and use it against the soft-on-abortion GOP.

Especially considering that exactly the same thing can be said about Republicans in respect of opposing abortion as you say about them in respect of supporting "gun rights": they have no more acted on their anti-choice rhetoric than, you say, they have acted on their pro-"gun rights" rhetoric.

Why not cut 'em off at the knees and get all those votes? I'm pretty confident that there are at least as many anti-choice votes to be had as there are pro-"gun rights" votes.

Will no one tell me?
