I received a telephone call from “Quantel Research” doing a poll, mostly on the Didi Barrett/Will Truitt race. Never got polled for an Assembly race before. Specifically asked about abortion.

It’s about abortion, not guns

Michael Filozof at American Thinker opines, “The Kavanaugh fight isn’t about abortion. It’s about guns.

“… The Kavanaugh confirmation is about the future, not refighting the cultural battles of the 1970s. And next up on the Democratic agenda is sweeping, national gun control – and possibly even confiscation …”

I don’t agree with this.

Yes, there are politicians including Governor Cuomo that would be upset if their signature gun control laws were shot down by SCOTUS.  However, the main difference between the issues is that abortion has a legitimate grassroots surrounding it and gun control does not.

Democrat politicians aren’t stupid.  They are not going to put a lot of effort into issues that do not give them a positive return at election time.  This is why gun control is largely dead on the national level and all but a handful of states like New York.  Abortion isn’t.  SCOTUS issued a ruling that largely kept that issue from being fought in the states.  If it were overturned that’s where it would go.  If SAFE were overturned most of the country would be unaffected.  This is why whenever their is a court vacancy or a significant ruling about to come down abortion protestors can be seen with signs outside rallying.  Gun control advocates don’t do that because they can’t.  The culture war on guns has largely been won by 2A.  The same cannot be said about abortion.
