They need to claw back some ground with white working-class voters, particularly in purple states like Dan Kildee’s Michigan, which points towards a more moderate position on gun control. But there’s no denying that the party’s increasingly influential left wing wants, at a minimum, semiautomatic rifles banned, not just “assault weapons.” What’s a Democrat to do?
