Peach State Poses A Binary Choice

Georgia – -(AmmoLand.com)- Let’s face it, we’d love to have 100 Senators like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, or Josh Hawley. Sadly, we don't. But there is no time to complain because there are two very high-priority tasks for Second Amendment supporters, which involve binary choices. There is no third outcome: Rejecting one means accepting the other.

Come January 6, the winner of the runoff for the regularly-scheduled Senate election will be either David Perdue or Jon Ossoff. One talks a lot about hunting and has at least voted right on the issues (including for all three of President Trump’s nominees), the other thinks your efforts to defend yourself from unjust attempts to punish you via gun bans and other restrictions on the Second Amendment for crimes and acts of madness you didn’t commit are corrupt.

This is not a close call.

Quibbling and nitpicking to trash Perdue do us no favors, not when it puts Chuck Schumer one step closer to controlling the Senate floor as majority leader.

By the same token, on January 6, one of two people, Kelly Loeffler or Raphael Warnock, will win the special election runoff. You have the choice of someone who has not only voted right but who also stepped up to introduce pro-Second Amendment legislation that makes some positive movement as opposed to someone who thinks Second Amendment supporters need to do “penance” for backing President Trump.

Again, this is not a close call.

Loeffler’s been willing to support our rights and has earned our vote. Do you really want a hothead like Warnock to be in the Senate when a contentious debate over our gun rights occurs?

Then there is the final binary choice: Chuck Schumer or Mitch McConnell as Senate Majority Leader. An avowed enemy of our rights versus someone who has moved many judges into positions who will uphold our Second Amendment rights. Again, this is an easy choice to make.

Second Amendment supporters are better off with McConnell running the Senate. That means that Loffler and Perdue must win the runoff elections. Second Amendment supporters need to spend these last few days backing Loeffler and Perdue. They also need to support the National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund and their Institute for Legislative Action, in order to be ready for 2022 and 2024, to reverse the losses we have taken.

Harold is the standard butter/Fudd. He shills for the NRA which has done more to harm the 2A rights of Americans than any other organization in history and he shills for politicians who like to talk about their support of the constitution but only ever work to further violate it.

Harold is the problem. He tells firearm owners they “need” to vote for Perdue and they “need” to send more money to the NRA.

AmmoLand “needs” to dump Harold and find a writer who will actually work to get Republican politicians to commit to Pro Second Amendment stances. Apologizing for establishment Republicans and the NRA is how we got to where we are today.

I realize you know all this – my message is for the AmmoLand decision-makers and other readers who stumble across this forum.

Harold, you are doing the firearm owner community a disservice.

“Second Amendment supporters have three binary choices on January 6.” This is what the caption on the “Gun Rights” page says. It is WRONG! This is the same as the other article and I mentioned it there this morning. The runoff election is on Tuesday, the 5th. That is TO-MOR-ROW! Don’t wait for the 6th, they won’t let you vote then. Harold, are you working for Chucky to suppress our vote? Get the darned date right! We need every last vote we can get, and I sure hope this doesn’t cause anyone on our side to miss their chance to… Read more »

The posting date is Jan 4,2021, get off of Harrold’s back. Just because Harrold doesn’t advocate a hard line is no reason to attack him. Most of the “hard liners” are all talk anyway. Usually Harrold urges using polite tactics and that is what stirs some here up.

Polite tactics, along with constant “compromise” like Perdue favors, are exactly the reasons we have so many ridiculous gun laws and so many violent criminals walking among us.

Harold deserves all the criticism he is getting, and more.

Hello Harold, Rather than accusing firearm owners of quibbling, why didn’t you sit down with the NRA and set up a meeting with Perdue and ask him to take a firm stance on Red Flag Laws and Universal Background Checks? Then he could have earned our votes. Is the reason because you know he will not commit? By not committing he can still get the votes of the firearm owners who follow your logic. Then, after first “mass shooting,” Perdue can demand Red Flag Laws, Universal Background Checks, and other “common sense” gun control laws so he can say he… Read more »
