Of Anti-Gun Democrats & Circular Firing Squads

While we wait for the testimony on Benghazi, I found the intentional irony of this vignette from James Taranto too good to pass on without posting:

Antigun nuts are taking aim at moderate Democrats, reports:

Ads from the [Michael] Bloomberg-funded Mayors Against Illegal Guns are going up soon in Alaska, Arkansas and North Dakota--three states with Democratic senators who broke with the White House on last month's background checks vote. . . .

It's all got Democrats nervous about keeping their hold on the Senate, if they are under attack from not only Republicans but pro-gun control forces as well.

The Dems are most nervous about Pryor. "Radio spots in Arkansas will target the state's African-American community, 'without which Mark Pryor doesn't have a prayer of getting reelected,' said Mark Glaze, director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns."

Obama and his allies somehow convinced themselves the gun issue would hurt conservatives and Republicans. Instead the left is forming a circular firing squad.
