Bloomberg: NRA is Not the Entire Reason Why Gun Control Fails

Read the article, which is pretty good analysis, here.  It expresses a sentiment that I have long shared: the NRA may be the public standard bearer against gun control, it is not the only force in America with which anti-rights activists must contend.  It may not even be the most powerful:

3. Americans really dig their guns. This is a bitter pill for many blue-state liberals. But big swaths of the country are deeply enmeshed in the gun culture. Not crime culture, gun culture. 
Anti-rights people repeatedly try to convince people that gun ownership is declining, usually citing the General Social Survey.  That does not explain nearly five years of crazy gun buying by the public.
