USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Let’s put the important stuff right upfront. Go to www.SaveUSSenate.org and get involved.

Don’t be put off by some browser security apps suggesting that the site isn’t safe, that’s just another way some big tech companies are trying to limit what you can see. SaveUSSenate.org is a project of Paul Valone, founder and head honcho of Grass Roots North Carolina, and all-around good guy. I personally vouch for him and for the site.

While the United States is still in political limbo, with President Donald Trump challenging initial election results, based on substantial evidence of significant fraud in several key states, the balance of power in the US Senate is hinging on two mandatory run-off elections for US Senate seats in the state of Georgia.

There’s really no telling where the presidential race will end up. It’s pretty obvious that there was some serious chicanery going on, but there are forces in play working to block investigations, destroy evidence, and force certification of electors for Joe Biden. The strongest evidence of serious fraud is the way these forces have aligned against any sort of serious, open investigations into the details of the process. It wasn’t that long ago that Democrats were crying foul and claiming that our elections were subject to corruption, but since they got the result they were seeking, they are now insisting that there are no problems with the process and that anyone asking questions or calling for audits, is crazy or evil. If Democrats actually believe that Biden and Harris won fair and square, they should be leading the pack in calls for full disclosure, audits, and recounts, so that Biden and Harris can assume their duties with no cloud of doubt hanging over them.

Instead, Democrats have been quick to desegregate ballots, destroy mail-in ballot carrier envelopes, wipe voting machines, and oppose the Trump team’s efforts to shine a light on the voting process, in every way they can.

Reversing the initial results of the election, seems unlikely, especially considering the spinelessness of so many Republican politicians, so let’s proceed with the assumption that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are going to win the election in the Electoral College. That makes the Senate races in Georgia all the more critical.

In the November elections, Republicans secured 50 Senate seats, while Democrats won 48. If Democrats manage to win both of the Georgia run-off elections, we’ll have a 50/50 split, with Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) sharing leadership responsibilities in the Senate, and the Vice President becomes the tie-breaker. If Trump were to retain the Presidency, the loss of the two Senate seats in Georgia would mean that Vice President Mike Pence would be the tie-breaking vote on any matter, but we would only hear from VP Pence if ALL of the Republicans in the Senate stick with the party line.

With folks like Mitt Romney (R-UT), Susan Collins (R-ME), and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) in the mix, getting a unified Republican front would not be a given.

If Biden and Harris are seated and the Democrats win the two Georgia seats, Kamala Harris would be the tie-breaker, and Democrats would have the advantage of having a much more unified party, plus those few rogue Republicans, who might give them critical aid in a pinch.

For gun owners, a Biden Harris administration, with a 50/50 Senate split, would mean Democrats would have free rein on judicial appointments, and would very probably be able to pass some significant gun control legislation – especially if they follow through on their threat to do away with the filibuster, the same way they did away with holds on judicial nominees. Without the filibuster there to force Democrats to get a 60-vote majority for passage of controversial bills, their legislative agenda would almost certainly include bans on so-called “assault weapons,” and “high-capacity” magazines, and possibly include Australian-style “mandatory buy-backs” of those items.

The most immediate threats looming for gun owners though, lie in the regulatory realm, with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives already making noise about tighter restrictions on pistol braces, it’s very likely that Biden would encourage more regulatory shenanigans from that agency. With the support of a Biden-Harris administration, it’s likely that the BATFE would evolve even stricter definitions and interpretations of the National Firearms Act and the Gun Control Act, resulting in broad import bans on firearms and ammunition, reclassification of various pistols and shotguns as “short-barreled” firearms requiring NFA registration and taxation, and possibly go so far as to try and classify most semi-auto rifles as “machine guns,” based on the technical descriptions in the NFA. If that were to happen, virtually every semi-auto rifle, as well as many pistols, would be required to be registered under the NFA, including a $200 tax per item, and those made after May 19, 1986, would be declared contraband because no firearm manufactured after that date can legally be registered.

All of these regulatory changes could be done without the benefit of congressional votes, and without a pro-rights majority in the US Senate, there would be little that Congress could do to prevent such travesties. And these are only a few of the executive actions we could expect dealing directly with firearms and ammunition. There’s much more that a President Biden could try to do with his pen and phone, that would be directly and indirectly detrimental to gun owner rights, including reducing immigration enforcement, opening up more pathways to citizenship – and voting – for illegal immigrants, appointing anti-rights zealots to positions of power in a variety of agencies, and signing back onto the UN Arms Trade treaty.

If all of this sounds like a recipe for insurrection, you’re right. I can’t see the American people standing for these sorts of attacks, and I don’t think it would take long for non-compliance to turn into some serious flashpoints.

I don’t know about you, but I’d personally rather settle these matters with votes and debates, instead of putting the lives of my kids and grandkids at risk in civil unrest.

That’s why the run-off elections in Georgia are so critical. While there can be little doubt that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are going to try to advance a radical, anti-rights agenda, maintaining a Republican majority in the US Senate could be the last bulwark between Biden and the self-destruct button.

Voting in the Georgia run-off has already begun, with almost one million mail-in ballots requested. In-person early voting begins on December 14, and Election Day is January 5, 2021. Don’t wait. Go to www.SaveUSSenate.org and find out what you can do to help make a difference.

If Biden gets seated, America does not any longer have a government. No law at the top means no law at any level. And to assume that Biden is the only leftist gain that was stolen in this election is probably naive.

This election is very important to what happens to America and the world. The reason I mention the world is because shumer first said georgia and then the world and then he was asked to put on his mask and say it again and when he did he changed it from the world to America. For some reason the news doesn’t show the whole thing. This is enough to show me that we are going back to the New World Order way of thinking if the demonrats get to be in charge. They will change the world by giving away… Read more »

Senator Schumer has always been a rabid antigun politician. Back when he was a Congressman he was very involved with proposing, drafting, and getting anti gun legislation passed.. I don’t like Schumer or the rest of the ilk are and think like him, which is very anti American in many ways. His quote of We take Georgia, We take America is true. The communists /socialists/ progressives will rule very hard handed. Sadly in the past there should have been effort to recall or get elected officials Like Schumer and the rest of them out of office and kept out of… Read more »

As a lifelong 2A advocate, please know that I’m not being critical of the fight to protect our rights, nor opinions on this election. Also, I truly appreciate what Jeff (and those like him) has done to defend our rights. But I don’t buy massive voter fraud and conspiracy. After all, the GOP won BIG! Republicans won in just about every contested race, gained big in the House, and in state legislatures. If wide spread fraud elected Biden over Trump, then why didn’t the same ballots for Biden vote down ticket for Dems and end up in a blue wave?… Read more »

You almost had it, if the Democratic ticket won why did the Republican tickets gain in the House & Senate?

Many of the suspect ballots only had votes cast for the presidential candidate. If the fraudulent ballots in Republican-majority areas had no votes cast for the Senator and Representative candidates, then the total of all votes (fraudulent and legitimate) would likely result in a Biden win and Republicans being elected in the Senate and House. Even with the fraud though, I believe Trump could have won if he had not pissed off a subset of his most loyal base and if he had moderated his tone somewhat (apparently that offended a portion of white suburban women who would otherwise have… Read more »

Because if you don’t vote you can’t win. You are spouting exactly what the dems are to try and get republicans to stay at home. With the eyes of America and the world on their election it is going to be on the up and up, I am almost sure and if it is and republicans don’t show, who do you think is going to win?

Thanks for the reply musicman44mag. My sole intention here is to engage in discussion with like-minded patriots and hopefully come out more critically aware. Honestly, if fraud occurred at such a high level in all of the battle ground states that Biden won, that means that unprecedented conspiracies occurred simultaneously in each state, including Georgia. My concern is that people who believe that, won’t vote because they think it’s all rigged anyway. Especially considering that the Republican led state elections board and Rep. Governor have said numerous times that the results of the election were legitimate. To be clear, I… Read more »

They didn’t physically have time to mark the Presidential choice AND down-ballot choices for as many phony ballots as they had to manufacture, they could barely get the Presidential ones marked.

But they had time to manufacture tens of thousands of ballots AND link them with actual citizens? On the surface your comment makes sense, but that would mean that the most successful and nefarious conspiracy of my lifetime left a lot on the table. To me, it just doesn’t make sense that an organization that’s clever enough to pull off an operation of this magnitude wasn’t clever enough to finish the job.
Please know that I’m only trying to play devil’s advocate and make sense of the voter fraud argument. I’d love to see these fuckers go down.

It’s insane how they say “there is not ENOUGH fraud to overturn the election.”
It’s like saying I only put my penis in her 1/4 of the way so I didn’t really have sex with her… way too many just turning a blind eye to what is going on and letting it get worse.
This is going to get ugly…

Can you see any Americans fighting the change and possibly overturning this stolen election or resisting their political change?
