Glorious People's Revolution

And a safe full of Guns.

Slate comments on Bernie Sanders and how, being a Vermonter, is more gun friendly that most Red Commie bastards.

The part that attracted my attention?  "But before liberal Democrats flock to Sanders, they should remember that the Vermont senator stands firmly to Clinton’s right on one issue of overwhelming importance to the Democratic base: gun control."

Huh?  Is that true?  'Overwhelming importance'?  Does gun control really motivate a sizable proportion of the base?  Does that statement even pass the smell test among reliable Democrat voters that do have gun control on their personal radar?

I'd think, based on my own observations, that gun control isn't even as high as a secondary priority on the Liberal Political Punch List when it comes to what policies they want to concentrate on.

Slate is stealing a march.   But I guess you do what you have to at your media outlet when the Hillary Campaign calls and orders you to.   It doesn't have to make sense or even reflect reality.  I'm sure they will be richly rewarded.
