SO, HAVE WE WON “THEM”—you know, “those guys”—over, or are “our guys” going their way? I just received this statement in my email from Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility: one-third of the Washington state voters who support universal background checks for new purchases of guns ALSO support the gun lobby’s ballot measure that would prevent Washington state from having universal background checks!
Duh . . .
It’s all in how the initiatives are worded and how the pundits are pushing the issues, especially the rightwing talk-show hosts, who should be getting paid for PR.
