15. It depends on what part of the country they're in ...

... and no matter what the polls say, gun owners turn out in high numbers and is one of the contributing factors in the weakening of the Democratic Party in many states. Winning is the number one priority now and we can't do that if we make gun control a centerpiece, that's just a fact. We need to protect Senators and gain House members in some of the heaviest gun ownership states in the country in 2018 ... if the Democrats keep trying to put a focus on gun control, we will lose those states and the GOP will have an even bigger majority.

Our situation in the Senate is especially dire since Democrats have more than twice the number of seats in contention than Republicans. Half of those seats are in high gun-ownership states that went Trump. We have to shift focus away from that issue.
