Some seem to feel that the ballot is the big thing we have in our favor. So, if a Representative votes for this they might lose their job in the next round of elections. However, even many of the supposed pro-gun Congressmen represent States that voted for Mr. Obama who openly campaigned on gun control. So, if people voted for a gun control candidate for president or we so sure they will vote against gun control candidates in Congress.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
