Democrats still the party of gun control

Certain Democrats from largely pro-gun areas have gotten press for opposing gun control -- including both Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Party leaders of both House and Senate.  But their party is still the party of gun control.
The poll revealed that while 92% of identified Republicans who responded say the U.S. Constitution affirms an individual right to own a gun under the Second Amendment, only 64% of those who said they were Democrats believe that. They were even behind the 71 percent of respondents who claimed no political affiliation, while supporting individual gun rights..
Let's not get carried away with supposedly pro-gun Democrats.  Their supporters are much less likely to hold their feet to the fire on that issue.
