MV is likely correct, the 6 of them that were undecided and still considering Obama are not likely to swing the election.

It may be more important than anyone thinks.

I have a number of extremely liberal friends who also happen to be pro-gun. If Obama appears to be very anti-gun, that could very well swing those votes.

There is another factor that people don't consider. Epona is a left of middle moderate who is pro-gun. She was NOT planning to vote for Obama but she hadn't decided whether to vote at all. If Obama appears too anti-gun, she'll get motivated to go vote.

Either way, Obama loses and Romney gains and it'll be by more than anyone anticipates. People who are for personal freedoms tend to be VERY protective of those freedoms.
