Response to badtoworse (Reply #53)

64. "Guns" didn't appear in the national Democratic Platform before 1968...

 

Only after the "ghetto riots" of the 60s did the first mention of guns arise. If someone wants to grab feverishly for a prohibitionist hit, let them do it on their own locally, but don't lay elitist inability to organize a movement on the backs of Democrats trying to gain -- or keep -- office.

Blaring out bans and controls through a distrusted (and shrinking) MSM, and in platform pronouncements without any ability to make it happen is inviting attack, and preventing a widespread effort to gain more popular Party support.

Do it on your own, don't ask an institution to carry your water.
