Kopel on elections and the gun issue
Dave Kopel has a post at National Review Online, regarding the upcoming elections and the firearm issue.
His thoughts are essentially: if the House goes Demo, there will be antigunners in the relevant leadership slots and thus risk. If the Senate goes Demo, Harry Reid is pro-gun, as are, to greater or lesser degrees, a majority of the Demo senators, which should give insurance.
I know he's got a good read on the local race for the House. Randy Graf won the nomination, fighting the GOP establishment's last second pick, and winds up with the national GOP withdrawing all support. The Demo candidate is leading by 8-10 points and will likely win.
Well we will have a choice, New York gun control laws, or San Francisco gun control laws. Count on it.
No choice, vote 100% Republican.
