Gun nuts gone wild

It's no surprise to see the Republican Senate candidates pandering desperately to the right wing, but at a certain point, it becomes a total farce. For example: Both Carly Fiorina and Chuck DeVore actually said during a taped debate that they think people on the federal no-fly list should be allowed to buy guns.

I know, I know -- there are people on that list who shouldn't be, and it's a pain to get off it, but still: Buying guns?

Even Tom Campbell, who is running far to the right of where he's always been, was a bit flabbergasted:

"That is not an infringement on anybody's Second Amendment rights," said Campbell, a former law professor at Stanford. "It seems somewhat unusual to take that position – except perhaps in a Republican primary."
