I don't think they influence voters either way, anymore than shows like "Top Shot", "Sons Of Guns", or any of the others do. Most voters have their minds made up about guns one way or the other. Perhaps a husband might sway a wife over time, but a silly reality TV show isn't going to spin the vote either way. I think anyone who takes these shows seriously most likely doesn't vote to begin with.
