For the first time since Al Gore lost to George W. Bush, Democrats are pushing for gun control in a presidential campaign. Three years ago, the US Senate refused to enact new gun control legislation. Now President Obama is using his bully pulpit to explain admittedly "modest" executive actions guaranteed to get the political pot boiling.
Sure enough, Hillary Clinton's embracing them, while Republicans are predictably outraged. With California enacting new restrictions while Texas goes for open carry, which party is taking the greatest risk in the national campaign?
