Even better, a victory that came in spite of a huge media push and a lot of emotional knife-twisting.
This is one of those issues that has helped shake my confidence in rational argument. I've run into too many people who cannot have a rational conversation about guns, and who think that any discussion's winner is determined by who gets more emotional and panicked. 'Newtown' is supposed to be a blank check to pass pretty well whatever gun restrictions desired, regardless of whether they would have really prevented Newtown, regardless of whether they're good ideas at all.
What's really insulting about the media coverage is this attempt to treat the NRA as the bogeyman, without really explaining why the NRA was successful: their ability to directly get their message to voters, and their ability to get those voters to vote. People seem to get the idea that this is an organization that wields power by directly throwing money at political campaigns - but while rank 228 is certainly high, that means there's 227 groups that outperform them. It's that rank of 15 in 'outside spending' - on direct voter outreach - that makes them powerful. That and their effectiveness with communicating their message.
But that's the real terror, isn't it? That's not supposed to happen. The media at large is against gun ownership. That's supposed to determine what message is getting heard. Can you imagine an organization so powerful that they can override the manipulation of news and entertainment media, AND a president? We can't have that, can we.
