70. It lost at least 6 senate seats in 2014, and it was a big factor in several swing states this year,

including my own. I live in North Carolina, where we just elected a pro-gun Dem governor, even as the *same* voters rejected a Dem presidential candidate.

Do you honestly think gun rights weren't a factor in PA, FL, or MI either?

You can ascribe it to whatever factors you want, but Clinton lost by 180,000 votes here, and there are ~2+ million people in this state who would have been directly affected by the Third Way's proposed gun/mag bans, out of ~4+ million gun owners overall. And her demonization of nonhunting gun owners in the primary did not go over well here, nor did the constant social-media bashing.
