This may also be of interest: from 538 (Nate Silver's blog), an analysis of how senators voted in relation to the percentage of gun owners in their states, and whether they're up for reelection in 2014.

The correlation is almost perfect for those up for reelection in the next cycle; and still strong for those who are not.

One might almost believe that they actually care what their constituents think...
