What is the point? The number of people who actually support "gun control" are a tiny minority of the population. They have no significant number of votes. It makes much more sense to see this as a last minute desparation ploy by those ideologues who want the rest of us disarmed.

Why are they pushing same-sex marriage at the same time? Didn’t anybody count the votes or set this up in advance? It’s a political ploy.
