Screwed in the Senate but not in the Electoral College

According to Ronald Brownstein in the National Journal, background checks for gun purchasers may never pass in the Senate because of the number of Senators from small, conservative states.

But look at those same states within the Electoral College (which is basically one-man-one-vote), and the pro-gun side is decisively outnumbered.

The upshot is that we’re not getting federal gun control any time soon, but the Dems may have a lock on the Presidency.
