ASSOCIATED PRESS: Pro-gun voters put heat on Democratic senators. “Baucus’ predicament is one that a group of Democrats like him in the West and South are facing. They hail from predominantly rural regions of the country where the Second Amendment is cherished and where Republicans routinely win in presidential elections. From Montana to Louisiana, these anxious voters have made at least six Democratic senators a little uneasy heading into next year’s election season. Both sides are aware that gun-owners’ rights are taking shape as a campaign issue that could shift the balance of power in the U.S. Senate. . . . Democrats control the Senate, but if Republicans pick off these seats they could take the chamber.”
Democrats lost the Congress over gun control in 1994. Are they dumb enough to repeat their mistake?
