And it is widely known in the party ranks that some members who are up for an election, and if the party has the votes needed, that their fearless leader will tell these members to go ahead and vote to oppose the bill, just to fool the sheeple at home. Matheson is a wolf. Do not be fooled by the color of his wool!

All federal judge positions are presidential appointments. And in Utah, state judge positions are gubernatorial appointments. While it would be nice to think that only the most qualified people get the appointments, that's not the way our system of government always works.
Is anyone here even going to suggest that Republicans don't do the same thing? Lee's brother got appointed to The Utah Supreme Court.

Maybe the OPs vision shouldn't be so narrow. Senator Hatch is on record in favor for stricter background checks, including at gun shows, and against the importation of high-capacity magazines. He's a 7 term Republican Senator.

It's amazing how gun control debates ALWAYS get turned into DemoRAT v RepubliCAN'T debates when no one ever says that there aren't any anti gun republiCAN'ts. The truth is that there are SOME RepubliCAN'Ts that should not be in office. The other truths are that ALL DemoRATs WILL vote for some form of gun control and some want a total ban. In fact that is a goal of the DemoRATic party in general. Show me a RepubliCANT that wants guns totally band. It's also not on the RepubliCAN party agenda at all.
