18. It's not a question of "buying" it, there was recently a vote on UBCs, and the GOP

voted against them. And none of them cited any silly commerce clause grounds, they simply repeated the old NRA talking points about slippery slopes and rights and all that.

Elected officials are to the right of the people they represent. On a lot of issues, economically in particular, but also on guns. And it's been going on for a long time. There are studies about it. It's not a big secret.
