Despite gun control industry lobbying, firearms didn’t come-up during last night’s presidential debate. Jim Lehrer didn’t go there because the issue isn’t on the national agenda. At the risk of repeating myself, President Obama’s position on gun control has been pragmatic: he’s no more likely to touch it than I am to brush a lock of hair away from Estelle Yves‘ bushy brows. If Jimbo had asked the CIC about the Second Amendment the Prez would have said something pro-2A, talked about his heart going out to victims and how he looked forward to “starting a conversation” about disarming psycho killers. Romney would have pledged his allegiance to the People of the Gun. In fact, gun rights would have been another area of agreement between the two pols—which makes Obama look bad. So it’s a shame it didn’t come up. Media Matters is pissed. Good.
