Loeffler One of the Last Chances to Hold the Line in Georgia

New Right-to-Carry Case Filed; Second Amendment Advocates Seek Injunction Against Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, Public Safety Commissioner Gary Vowell, Cherokee County, and Probate Judge Keith Wood
Georgia Special Election An Embarrassment Of Riches

Georgia – -(AmmoLand.com)- Barring a miracle in the courts and some state legislatures willing to act should the court rule, Second Amendment supporters will have an avowed enemy in the White House who will seek to unjustly punish them for the many crimes and acts of madness they did not commit. This needs to be acknowledged (to concede would, to borrow the phrasing of one anti-Second Amendment extremist, be to admit and accept that what happened with the vote counts and the ballots in multiple locations on November 3 was right – and based on what we know, what happened wasn’t right). I would be lying if I said it was right, and I have pretty much-called things as I see it on Ammoland.

Now comes the task of maintaining a firewall against the plans for court-packing and other methods of permanently rigging the election system against us. Right now, that means working to win the two runoff elections for the Senate seats from Georgia. One, as we noted earlier, is a special election. The good news is that the GOP has Kelly Loeffler running, and in her brief time as an appointed Senator, she has delivered for Second Amendment supporters.

Loeffler introduced the Gun Owner Privacy Act, which would eliminate wiggle room for using the National Instant Check System (NICS) as a back-door means of gun registration. The legislation did not move in the 116th Congress, but if Loeffler is elected to fill the rest of Senator Johnny Isakson, she could reintroduce it in the 117th.

Loeffler also backed S Con Res 40, which would have put both houses of Congress squarely against the “may issue” laws in states like New York, California, and New Jersey that have really become de facto “nonissue” states. Such a declaration would be an asset in the litigation that the Second Amendment Foundation is pursuing.

But for the SAF’s litigation strategy to prevail, the possibility of the courts being packed with anti-Second Amendment extremists must be foreclosed for as long as possible. To do that, Loeffler needs to be re-elected. While control of the Senate will not be enough to completely prevent the administrative moves that we will likely see be made against our rights over the next four years, it can keep the courts as a bulwark against the worst of them.

To support Loeffler’s bid to finish Isakson’s term, Second Amendment supporters can check out her campaign website. They also need to donate generously to the National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund. This special election, as well as the regular runoff between Senator David Perdue and Jon Ossoff (which we will discuss later), is for all the marbles.

Don’t forget, if the worst happens, there is state nullification of unconstitutional acts by the Feds or executive order. Read Thomas Woods “Nullification: How to resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century.”

11 states say its ok to use marijuana even though there is a federal law that says you can’t and even though there is a federal agency to enforce that law. The federal agency does not enforce that law in those 11 states. Many cities have declared themselves “sanctuary cities” even though there is a a federal law that says it is illegal to sneak across the boarder and live in the U.S. without going through the naturalization process. Tens of millions of people living in the U.S. illegally are largely not bothered by the two federal agencies responsible for… Read more »

Do you really think the answer is money?

Nobody out cheapskates the gun owners who fashion themselves patriots and 3 percenters.

Money is everything in politics.

Not quite “everything”, but certainly a lot of the thing. Effective campaigns are expensive. The GOP needs the majority to stop court packing and the addition of new blue states.

A phone call from Trump to Barr would have cost nothing. If he had done that, he would have been re-elected.

Sometimes not allowing your subordinates (Barr/Lombardo) to turn your die-hard base into felons goes a long way to getting the votes from the die-hard base.

Of course, actually doing things consistent with your campaign promise doesn’t get money into the hands of lawyers, so I’ll give you that.

What is so hard for Republican politicians to understand about “no more gun control?”

I could not agree more with the author. Georgia is a must win for gun rights. Anti-rights forces are apoplectic. Because of their poor election performance. But they still have a goal.
