The relative comity of the race for the Democratic nomination for
president was interrupted last week with an unexpectedly sharp attack
video aimed in an unexpected direction.


"Bernie Sanders is no
progressive when it comes to guns,” said the narrator of a Web video
produced by a "super PAC" supporting former Maryland Gov. Martin
O’Malley.


That the first direct attack of the Democratic primary would focus on
guns – a second-tier issue -- and Sanders – a long-shot candidate –
would have been hard to predict in a race dominated by front-runner
Hillary Rodham Clinton and the party’s search for an economic message.
But as Sanders, the Vermont senator and a self-described socialist,
rises in the polls, he’s also emerged as the top target – both for those
wanting to supplant him as the liberal alternative to Clinton and those
arguing that a liberal alternative isn’t necessary.


"It is clear
that Bernie Sanders is the most interesting character in the Democratic
nomination play at the moment,” said Jamal Simmons, a Democratic
strategist.

It’s also clear how Sanders became the hot target.
Fueled by his unpolished appeal and unvarnished attacks on
moneyed interests on Wall Street and in Washington, the Sanders campaign
is gaining ground – particularly in all-important New Hampshire, where
the Vermont senator is a well-known figure. A CNN/WMUR poll released
last week found Sanders within 8 percentage points of Clinton.

Hmm


Sanders’ reputation as soft on guns comes in part from his vote against the 1993 Brady Bill, which created mandatory background checks for gun buyers in many sales. Then a member of the House, Sanders argued that it was a matter that should left to the states. Sanders also voted for the 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, a National Rifle Assn.-backed bill intended to protect gun manufacturers and dealers from being sued for negligence when their products are used to commit crimes. The law is opposed by some gun victims’ families who have sought to hold gun makers accountable for shooting deaths.

Double hmm


But Sanders also has voted in favor of a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. And in 2013, in the wake of the Sandy Hook school massacre, he supported the amendment that would have expanded background checks to all gun sales in a commercial setting, closing what’s known as the gun show loophole. That measure fell short of passage.
