Default Guns for Votes

I'm glad that Michael Bloomberg is mounting a $15 million campaign for sensible gun laws. We give regularly to the Brady Campaign, but we certainly can't compete with Mr. Bloomberg's deep pockets.

Meanwhile, this from today's New York Times. . .

Online gun sweepstakes have become one of the most useful tools for campaign outreach in the 2014 Republican primaries. Across the country, from a race for sheriff in California to the United States Senate primary in South Carolina, candidates are using high-powered pistols and rifles as a lure to build up their donor lists and expand their base of support.

Perfectly legal? Of course. Chilling beyond words? Absolutely.
