37. life is just so simple, isn't it?

Clinton had been led to believe that the AWB was a non-issue with gun owners (because most gun owners supposedly were hunters, and the AWB didn't affect anyone but a tiny fringe, blah blah blah). That advice was flatly wrong, as others with more knowledge of the issue tried to point out.

The actual facts seem to be that it was a non-issue until THE NRA MADE IT AN ISSUE and flung huge amounts of money into making it an issue.

Cause, effect, as anyone with a stitch of sense and an iota of integrity would say.

The AWB did NOT provoke "an immense (and well deserved) backlash". THE NRA DID.
