That’s where the hippies who like guns live. Which means that, sure, Sen. Bernie Sanders voted for legislation that protects gun manufacturers against the kind of lawfare that hardcore antigun fanatics dream of, furtively and with the shades drawn. And, apparently, the aforementioned fanatics are infuriated about this.
Heh. If antigun progressives keep going nuts on this topic, either Sanders will have to tell them to self-pleasure themselves, or else he’ll fold like a cheap suit. Either way sounds like fun to watch! – Personally, I vote for Bernie Sanders giving the antigun types the metaphorical finger. Better for the country if he does, honestly: the current codependent relationship between the Democratic party and its progressive base is kind of unhealthy.
PS: Comments on that Slate article, by the way, are a hoot. The readership is having none of it, and it seems to be evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans. Which, by the way, should be taken as a hint by Democrats: hating the guns does your party absolutely no good. So… please keep doing it, I guess.
