Gun ownership is low in cities, and high in rural areas.
This is also not entirely accurate. Yes, the rate of gun ownership is lower in cities, but urban gun owners tend to be more wealthy, and have significantly bigger gun collections as a result. Basically, a rural area might had a dozen rednecks with a shotgun and a rifle each (both several decades old), whereas the city will have two RFWGs each with a dozen guns with an average price tag of $800-900.
Anyway, the point is that, apparently, catering to the gun crowd doesn't actually piss the urbanites off all that much. If it did, we'd see way more membership in and funding of gun control organizations, way bigger demonstrations against guns etc. On the other hand, the gun crowd tends to be very touchy (which shouldn't come as a surprise, as many are clinically paranoid and live in their own reality where the government is out to take their guns and freedoms, and everything that can even tentatively be connected to that is a part of the grand master plan).
So they'll probably do what organizations usually do: adopt a few symbolic and largely meaningless measures that are enough to get the gun owners talking but not quite fuming, while also allowing MDA and MAIG to publish nice press releases about "somebody finally did something! yay us!".
