Now that the darling "right" of the Republican Party is in the cross-hairs, all of a sudden, they have time to consider issues other than the economy. It's amazing.
I respect your contributions to this board.
Politics is fluid. Also, Washington has shown an unwillingness to grapple with our fundamental economic problems IMO. I suspect a good portion of the electorate interested in politics has thrown their collective hands up in the air over Washington's economic negligence and is now focused on issues they believe they still can influence.
ETA: And to your point, gun rights supporters have almost always preferred inaction by Washington on the matter. A desire from that group to focus on other topics is really nothing new.
