2014 elections are looking like a gun control battle

The Senate's upcoming vote on the assault weapons ban is going to put vulnerable Democrats in a difficult spot.

Democrats facing tough reelection races will either attract the ire of the National Rifle Association or prominent gun control activists such as New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I). A vote against the ban could spark primary challenges that could weaken Democrats in the general election.

The NRA on one side, and Bloomberg on the other.  Real grassroots versus well-funded astroturf.  We beat them in 1994, and we will need to do so again.
