2016 Democratic Hopefuls View Gun Control As Winning Issue

It is sickening that politicians take an event like the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and decide that now they can use gun control to advance their career opportunities.  Democrats who have designs on the White House in 2016 have determined they have a "winning issue."  This from the Washington Post :
In Maryland, Gov. Martin O’Malley rolled out a sweeping plan Monday to ban military-style firearms and ammunition clips as well as overhaul mental health and school safety programs.
In New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo reached agreement with state lawmakers to enact measures including the country’s toughest assault weapons ban, saying that “no one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer.”
And it's not just politicians in states known to be friendly to gun control.
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper is pushing to mandate universal background checks on all gun sales — a controversial move in a Western state where gun enthusiasts usually hold sway.

Let them all put gun control front and center during the next campaign. Then, maybe blue-collar voters who go Democrat because of wallet issues will finally wake up to the fact that these candidates are not the friends of law-abiding gun owners.
