Gun Rights Supporters Battle Anti-Gun Groups in Funding Georgia Senate Runoff Races

Brady PAC has already spent $135,000 in Georgia’s Senate race, $100,000 of which was spent following the Nov. 3 general election, Fox News verified through FEC reports Wednesday.

Other gun control groups, like Everytown for Gun Safety and Giffords, are also jumping at the bit and joining forces to not only invest in the Senate Democratic candidates, Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock, but are taking on gun titan, the National Rifle Association (NRA).

The NRA has also heavily invested in the fight for the Senate majority, and poured over $900,000 into mail, phone services, canvassing and event spaces during the month of December alone, targeting the promotion of GOP incumbent candidate Senators David Perdue and Kelley Loeffler, FEC filings show.

But gun control groups say the NRA is not the threat they used to pose, as the gun advocacy group continues to reel from internal controversies.

“They’re more bark than bite these days, they’re embroiled in all their own scandals, they don’t have the money they used to have and they are not the threat that we used to see them to be,” Lemek told Fox News. “And not so much because of the money aspects but because the jig is up.

      enuf…You are much, much, much worse than what you claim to disdain. You slandered and libeled the POTUS like a mealy mouth democRat. You boasted about buying guns and ammo not realizing those purchases were made possible off the backs of us who defeated hilliary rotten clintoon and got DJT elected POTUS. Like a self serving sloppy pig feeding at the trough you could care less about where your meal came from. Then you boasted about contributing to Jim Crow Gun Control joe biden. Then you concocted a lame excuse for not having a NRA Life Membership because you were not going to be around long enough to make it worth your while…Again the mind of a self serving pig. And once more..You Have No Podium.

    Just from what is known there is more than enough evidence to rule against the election results from the states that shut down. Whether by fraudulent mail in ballots with only a vote for joe biden or by quantum computer, etc. there are democRats in the woodpile.
    Unless there is a do-over in the sleaze states and the theft stands joe biden is not and never will be my president or president of the millions that cast record breaking votes for DJT. No telling how many votes for DJT were moved in the dark to joe biden.

    Stealing elections is old hat for the democRat Party. They got a lot of practice doing it to Black Americans who ran for office or held office. They did it with slander and libel and need be by a rope. It is sickening when a Black American is dumbed down to the level of not seeing what happened to DJT since the day he was elected was straight from the democRat Party Jim Crow Playbook. It proves far too many Black Americans are still on the plantation not picking cotton but harvesting votes for their democRat Party slave masters.

      The people who are saying that Trump filing a lawsuit is equivalent to a violent coup, and that anyone who asks a question about the possibility of fraud is a dangerous anti-American anti-democracy lunatic, are the same people who pitched a 4-year long fit screaming that Russia stole the election in 2016…And many of them haven’t even scraped the “#notmypresident” sticker off their cars yet! The hypocrisy is breathtaking.

      My response to any Biden support who attempts to argue the point is to ask them if I can have their “not my president” tshirts now that they’re done with them.

      That’s a good one, you really know what you’re talking about!

      You need to take all this evidence you have and pass it on to Rudy G, Jenna Ellis and Sidney Powell because they don’t have any real evidence for the courts at this point.

    H.L. Mencken wrote the following in 1925. Y’all may recognize the name. What has changed since then? Nothing.

    ******************************************

    The Uplifters Try It Again
    Gun-Control Laws Deprive Reputable Citizens of Protection
    Sunday, October 1, 2000

    H.L. Mencken (1880-1956) was the most influential newspaperman of his era and a prolific author of iconoclastic books and essays. This is reprinted from The Evening Sun of Baltimore, November 30, 1925. Copyright 1925 by The Evening Sun. Republication without credit not permitted.

    The eminent Nation announces with relish “the organization of a national committee of 100 to induce Congress to prohibit the inter-State traffic in revolvers,” and offers the pious judgement that it is “a step forward.” “Crime statistics,” it appears, “show that 90% of the murders that take place are committed by the use of the pistol, and every year there are hundreds of cases of accidental homicide because someone did not know that his revolver was loaded.” The new law—or is it to be a constitutional amendment?—will do away with all that. “It will not be easy,” of course, “to draw a law that will permit exceptions for public officers and bank guards”—to say nothing of Prohibition agents and other such legalized murderers. “But soon even these officials may get on without revolvers.”

    It is all very familiar, and very depressing. Find me a man so vast an imbecile that he seriously believes that this prohibition would work.

    1. avatar Alan says:

      The fact that the other Prohibition didn’t come even close to working seems to have escaped and continues to escape attention, strange to note. That being the case, how come the completely predictable failure of Gun Control, prohibition in a different suit, continues to do the same?

  4. avatar Let’s push for convention of states, remove the curtains of protection and hypocrisy! says:

    Imagine these hypocrites who hide behind the very cloak of protection of the first amendment, were to have the same checks and verification needed for the exercise of the second ! No speech without a background check, federal,state,and local constabulary approval on file for a permit, no speech zones, etc… Hell let’s give it equal application and see! Can’t hurt!

    Rev. Raphael Warnock, emphasis on Reverend, >GD AMERICA ? Raphael Warnock has been the senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church since 2005, so it’s a given that he will get at ~least 90% of the votes, black, in ATL & Fulton County. Then too with Stacey Abrams’ ~activities to boot, Kelley Loeffler’s actual/real chances of winning seem slim

    Worse, once Warnock is in he’ll be a permanent fixture, in office for life same like John Lewis was. Blacks vote for blacks, in mass, in ATL & Fulton County. Lewis took a beating in Selma and was well paid for it for the rest of his life. Warnock can greatly increase the size of his church, and offerings, should he win. But a MLK he is not. Far from it > GD AMERICA ?

    David Perdue has a little better chance vs. Jon Ossoff, but not much better and both races remain within the margin of error.

    Kemp should have DJT call in the National Guard, and many Federal Marshalls, to go with the 4000 ‘observers’ already slated to be stationed at poling places on Jan. 5th.

    Should vote counting be stopped for any reason, or another fake water main break be declaired, Federal Marshalls should seize and lock down ALL vote counting locations and operations.

    This is the big one for the NWO, the deep state and the fascist/radical/communist left. The country and the republic is most likely lost because of the ignorant black voters in ATL & Fulton County. Only years later, and too late, they might understand what they have done.

    For the millions of illegals, new Dem voters at the border about to flood in, everything is free in America. So here they come.

    Silly left wing loons here may try to say this above is ‘racist’. But it’s just straight talk and most here know it.

    It all comes down to GEORGIA and the SOUTH. It always HAS and it ALWAYS WILL. GOD’s country they say… We’re about to see if that’s true.

    In Dixie Land where I was born in, early on a frosty mornin’,
    Look away, look away, look away, Dixie Land.

    Southrons! hear your country call you!
    Up! lest worse than death befall you! …
    Hear the Northern thunders mutter! …
    Northern flags in South wind flutter; …
    Send them back your fierce defiance!
    Stamp upon their cursed alliance!

    I don’t expect the rich libertarians atheist like Joe Rogan to contribute $$$ to fight for liberty. He saw no reason to vote in California. Or help to save gun rights there. He and people like him won’t help anywhere else. They ride in the gun rights “wagon”. But expect others to pull them along.

    Rich pot heads are the same way. They are socialist progressive in their political orientation. Rogan said he liked Bernie Sanders.

    With the fraud/stolen election it’s now a banana republic. An election now, same like in Russia, is nothing more than a sham/scam.

    It’s also now divided States, not United States.

    Instead of giving money to the NRA over and over again. Why not give it to a state gun rights group??? It would be much more effective. Oh Joe Rogan, Mr. Libertarian, are you out there listening???

    “In 2017, the NRA received seven donations of more than $1 million, including one for more than $18 million, according to tax records.”
