Leftists play the Frame Game. For example, they frame the gun issue as if if they want gun control and conservatives don't. This is a piece of utter mendacity and they must know it. Everyone apart from criminals wants gun control. The issue is not whether, but how much and of what kinds.
Another example is the framing of the abortion question as merely a reproductive rights or women's rights or women's health issue. That too is a piece of utter mendacity of the extreme sort that one would expect from Hillary herself.
More later. Think about this 'frame game' business and find more examples.
