As a conservative gun rights activist, a resident of Georgia and host of a national radio broadcast heard on several stations in cities throughout the state, I have a vested interest in stopping this madness. It’s in my best interest personally and as a rights activist, and it’s in the best interest of the country as a whole. The ideology that Ms. Abrams represents is a dangerous and metastasizing political cancer that includes wiping out the history of our great nation, including our gun rights. She must be stopped.
Let’s move to Kemp. If you recall, he ran a decidedly pro-gun rights campaign against Abrams and the Socialists. His pro 2A campaign ads were seen nationwide and heavy criticism was mounted against him for his stance in the liberal media. You may recall the ad with his future son-in-law while he was holding a shotgun reminding the young man of the second amendment. The left went crazy claiming he was threatening him with the shotgun pointing at him during their conversation. Again, this was false but the narrative took root in the mainstream legacy media and to many, painted Kemp as a gun-toting redneck.
As a Georgia gun owner, like the rest of the state’s gun rights supporters, I was thrilled when he won. Our expectations were high with a Republican controlled majority on both sides of the State House and now the governor’s mansion. Kemp was expected to sign virtually any pro-gun bill that hit his desk. None have. Since his election, not one bill has moved. Not one. That blame can be placed at many feet, including the gun rights organization in Georgia who in my estimation played softball rather than advancing a solid game plan to include constitutional carry among other bills, including sanctuary state, etc. There is no excuse for Georgia not being one of the nation’s constitutional carry states and no excuse for not having a sanctuary state designation proclaiming federal gun control initiatives dead on arrival in Georgia. None.
Kemp is very well aware of this and has been warned, along with the state’s Republican legislative leaders, that we had better see movement on the gun rights front in the final legislative session before this looming rematch with Abrams. This could be the last chance to advance a pro-rights agenda for years to come if the wrong thing happens in November 2022.
