Public Lands & Guns

A little off-edu but in U.S. News & World Report I take a look at the skirmishes over public land access and the political opportunity they offer Democrats among hook and bullet voters on guns and conservation.

It was easy to miss in the political chaos of the past few weeks, but America’s anglers, hunters and conservationists won a victory in Congress this month when a bill intended to facilitate the transfer of federal land to states was pulled by its sponsor. It’s an episode with lessons on environmental policy and – more importantly for Democrats – a path forward on the contentious issue of guns.

You can read the whole thing here and tell me on Twitter what caliber of Democrat you prefer.
