14. When did this become the "traditional core belief" of the party?
The question that comes to my mind is precisely when (and moreover why) did the Democrat "side" become anti-gun?

You cite that it is one of the party's "core beliefs"; why?

As for it's "traditional" stance; such an observation can only be made with an extremely short-sighted survey of history. I live in what was not that long ago a Progressive stronghold- Kansas. And it has never been "anti-gun", not then and not now.

I have my own theories that might answer the above, but I am interested to hear yours.
