Rep. Dan Surra (D., Elk) said that while he sympathized with residents living in high-crime areas, he could not support any gun-restriction bill because in certain quarters of his district, a hunting stronghold in the north-central part of the state, guns are a single-issue item at the polls

That's my home ground, and that's 100% accurate. My uncles and many of my neighbors who otherwise would have voted Democrat didn't in 1992 because they thought Clinton would take their guns. It's a third rail in central PA.
