If you look at US history, political parties change their views from time to time. Arguing that no party should ever change their views means that you support the idea of having a pro-slavery party, among other ridiculous things.
When I last remember seeing a California gun poll it showed a majority of the people were for gun control. So, by your logic Republicans should change their views to become more relevant. Women and Hispanics seem to be more anti-gun than other other groups, and the Republicans need to court these two groups especially hard, so maybe they should drop their 2A stance.
