Just how is doing what the people want when he argues against it even nationally? How is representing his people when he stands with the minority and even against the Constitutional Right to bear arms?
Because gun rights are but one issue and obviously the people of illinois side with Durbin on other issues moreso than the other guys that go against him.

Given the gridlock on simple things in Congress, I'm all for it. I would also be for it with Republicans in charge.
