Hey Democrats! Here's the biggest thing you should get behind. Democrats are so much better at being inclusive than Republicans and they are in a politically awesome position right now. If they accept 2A rights as they accept all others and draw up a list of reasonable restrictions on not guns, but people that use them criminally and basically pass airtight law that there will be no more gun laws (very easy given Supreme Court decisions on the issue) then they will have everything they want with no significant opposition from the right. Hello permanent supermajority just as easy as that. Gun owners are more than one third of Americans. It's a bigger demographic than LGBT, blacks and Hispanics combined. It's the #1 issue that people single issue vote on and it's huge business for the US. If the Democrats embraced guns and won over a fraction of the serious gun owners that don't care about all that social morality crap then they would be unstoppable. So think about a world unopposed by Republicans. How much trouble would these guns really be if every single issue with Republicans could be settled without compromise on our part. Pick an issue with Republicans and *poof* it's settled be it taxes on the rich, the war on drugs, women's rights, healthcare, education standards and funding, wars overseas, corporate regulations, climate change and environmental law, anything you can get your party to agree to is done regardless of the right's feelings on the issues because they'll just be too superminority to matter anymore. I don't know about you but I rather like the idea of everyone from center right on over suddenly becoming minority. Smells like justice to me. All it takes is some serious ironclad laws that limit gun restrictions permanently to current laws and require a constitutional amendment to change that. Then focus on laws that punish not the guns, but the people that use them criminally. (Ok, so you will need to make the compromise of becoming tougher on crime but think of all the extra room in prisons with the war on drugs over.) With gun rights locked in you will enjoy such an influx of center voters that vote single issue on gun control while holding their nose that the Republicans will never be able to take another presidential election again and will lose most of their seats in the house and senate. Think about it.
