      * Want it to be a horse race? Almost as unlikely as "stimulate the economy."

      * Are afraid some gun nut will off them? Possibly, in some cases.

      * Still believe that it will benefit the rethugs, and whatever benefits the party of least taxation benefits them? That's my crudely reductionist inference.
