163 House Democrats – over 80% of the entire caucus – signed onto an open letter Thursday addressed to Republican House Speaker John Boehner demanding that he allow “a vote on substantive legislation to address gun violence.” The timing of the letter suggests that Democrats are prepared to make gun control in an issue in the 2014 midterm elections, despite evenly divided public opinion and staunch opposition from the powerful National Rifle Association (NRA).

Yeah, well, that’s all they’ve got, isn’t it? Gun control, global warming, legalize illegal immigrants … That’s their whole agenda since they’ve failed at everything else. Unfortunately for them, the vast majority of Americans don’t care about these issues.
