Still looking for a definition of those terms. However, the difficulty in finding "pro-gun Democrats" may illustrate a fundamentally different worldview that plays itself out in party affiliation - one party that sees society as a collection of isolated individuals who happen to be close to each other, each claiming and guarding what it sees as its rights and to hell with the rest of 'em, and one party that has a broader view that sees the inevitable interactions between people as of fundamental importance, and requiring that the actual society that results as being a good thing. A single-minded absorption in gun ownership, to the depreciation of all else, is consistent with only one of those worldviews, and generally with party affiliation.
