HOW GEORGE BUSH COULD LOSE: By letting the Assault Weapons Ban, which is scheduled to expire next week, be extended. Pro-gun folks aren’t happy with his vague support for the extension, but have been willing to believe that it wouldn’t matter as the extension (like the Federal Marriage Amendment) wasn’t going anywhere. They might well abandon him if it were to pass, and he were to sign it. (For me, the war is the only issue this election, but not everyone feels that way). Jeff Soyer has a lot more information. And here, by the way, is a post from almost exactly three years ago on this topic. I rather doubt it will pass, but I suspect that Democrats will try extra hard in the hopes of putting Bush in a tight spot.
