2. one ad from Biden (or Warren or whoever) isn't going to change minds

they've had this ingrained in them for decades - Clinton was coming for your guns for 8 years, then vote Bush or Gore and then Kerry were going to take your guns... vote McCain/Palin and Romney/Ryan because Obama was surely coming for your guns..

I had a friend that was big into guns, but generally agreed with Democrats on nearly every other social issue - pro choice, believed religion had no place in politics, etc - but, he ALWAYS voted Republican because he had been so brainwashed into thinking Democrats were coming for his guns. Heck, he'd probably still be alive if Obamacare (or the equivalent under Clinton) had been implemented earlier because he had a crappy job with no insurance and had a lot of health issues that led to his early passing.
