6. If they're already blue, then they don't need gun-control advocacy to win elections

The problem fundamentally is that it discredits the Democratic Party in the minds of gun owners, simply because most of the PR about gun control is bullshit to people that know guns. It sounds good to people that don't know guns, but how can a gun-owner believe the Democratic Party about anything else when the public faces of the party are on TV and social media saying things that are bullshit?

"Pistol grips make rifles into assault weapons" is the kind of statement that's in the DNC party platform, and also bullshit. And "we have to ban AR-15s"... which for the last 25 years has probably been the best-selling type of rifle in the country. It's like saying "we have to ban 4-door CUVs" because reasons and such, and then being surprised when owners of Ford Escapes and Honda CR-Vs don't vote for us. Yeah, maybe the people that don't drive will buy it, but car owners will be like "WTF? You're an idiot!"

*sigh* I don't know. Nearly all homicides are gang-related or domestic violence, 95% of murders are single-victim incidents, and rifles are used for only 5% of gun-related murders a year, but the DNC keeps making this the spotlight gun-control issue.


I truly think that the DNC pursues the gun-control agenda in lieu of having to address the structural problems with wealth, health-care, labor versus management, etc.
