69. You mean, as opposed to the contention
(if only you silly Democrats would embrace the NRA, you could win every election!)

You mean, as opposed to the mantra that "if only you silly Democrats would embrace the gun-ban lobby more passionately, you could win every election"?

Pro-gun Dems DID win nearly every state-level election in North Carolina in 2004...the only ones they lost were the ones in which the party ran gun prohibitionists (Exhibit A: the Erskine Bowles/Richard Burr Senate race). Our pro-gun Dem governor won 55%/45% while the SAME VOTERS rejected the Kerry/Edwards ticket 45%/55%, and Edwards is from NC.

Methinks positions on expanded gun prohibition that play well in Canada may not play so well in most U.S. states?
