Sure, there are still radicals onthe right claiming, "He's gonna take your guns!", but there's nothing to back that up and for most of the electorate it became a non-issue. Rebs can't continue to fall 11 points behind in the women's vote and expect to win or gain allies.
I think Democrats need to stop making contraception a federal subsidy.
Oh, and if Obama could get his way he would take our guns away. Those checks and balances are what protect us.
