15. "Certain types of guns used to kill people, exclusively."

This, he can be educated on.

The rifles that the DLC/Third Way want him to ban are among the *least* likely to kill people, and among the *most* likely to be used for sporting purposes and other lawful/moral uses.

His previous history shows he is not idealogically commited to the Prohibition position, so I'd give him the benefit of the doubt on that.

Vermont isn't the stop-and-frisk, gunz-r-evilll utopia of Bloomberg/Guliani's NYC; AR-15's are exceedingly popular in the state, and Vermont doesn't even require a license to carry a concealed 9mm for self-defense. It's one of those places that shows that a lawful gun culture is not a left/right issue.
