After a two-year battle to save our gun rights from the relentless attacks of Joe Biden and the Radical Left, gun owners across America were hoping for a ‘Red Wave’ on Election Night.
In fact, many of us expected it. I know I did.
But as we all know, that’s not what happened in Washington.
The good news is that, as of this moment, gun owners appear to have kicked Nancy Pelosi and Democrats in the House out of power…a ‘revenge vote’ for their attempt to disarm us through an onslaught of tyrannical gun control bills.
In the Senate, however, the results were not so good.
As I write this, it’s too soon to know which party will control the Senate for the next two years. We’re headed to a run-off here in Georgia and recounts are likely in Nevada.
While there is still a chance that the Republicans could recapture the Senate, it’s very likely that Chuck Schumer will keep control of the chamber with a 50-50 “tie” — or even increase the size of his majority to a commanding 51-49.
Any way you look at it, at the federal level, this wasn’t a ‘Red Wave’ election that will end the threat to our gun rights in Congress. With an emboldened White House maintaining control of the United States Senate, you and I are in for a fight.
That’s why I hope that you will immediately renew your membership in Georgia Gun Owners for 2023, so that we can defend your gun rights in D.C., and expand them here in Atlanta!
We have major goals for 2023 and we’re counting on you!
You see, while gun owners didn’t experience a ‘Red Wave’ in Washington, D.C., GGO Nation damn sure SENT A MESSAGE to Stacey Abrams and every other gun-grabber on the ticket this fall!
Thanks to mobilized gun owners, the State Senate retained a strong pro-gun majority of 33 – 23 and the State House will likely end up with a staggering 102-77 pro-gun majority, despite being outspent by anti-gun candidates in many of these races.
Crazed gun-grabber and current State Senator Jen Jordan was destroyed in her run for Attorney General, losing badly! Bee Nguyen, a notorious gun-grabber in the State House, was soundly beaten in her campaign to become the Secretary of State.
Senator Burt Jones easily won his race for Lt. Governor, after voting for Constitutional Carry earlier this year.
But the most explosive event of the night was what happened to Stacey Abrams! Abrams, a darling of the DNC who used to be a presumptive Presidential candidate, was CRUSHED by Brian Kemp by a jaw dropping margin of 53.4% to 45.8%!
Abrams spent the last eighteen months bragging about her plan to repeal Stand-Your-Ground and Constitutional Carry and made it clear that she would fight for a ban on AR-15s and ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation. It was an insane strategy.
GGO went all in on this race, spending tens of thousands of dollars on digital ads, mass text messages and email programs to remind every gun owner in the state what was at stake.
Clearly gun owners weren’t very happy with Abrams, destroying her dream of becoming Governor for the second time. In fact, Abrams only won in 25 out of Georgia’s 159 counties!
It was a massive victory! To be clear, it was YOUR victory!
You see, every piece of our election program — every digital ad, every text message, every email campaign — was paid for by the members of GGO Nation. And I can’t thank you enough.
But if there’s one thing that we’ve learned from the Democrats over the years, it’s to never let your foot off the gas in the majority, especially when you have the momentum!
And that’s why I hope you’ll renew your membership in Georgia Gun Owners for 2023, because with the Constitutional Carry fight in the rearview mirror, we’re going to hit the ground running with an ambitious agenda in Atlanta next year!
Gun owners are well aware of the danger of these ‘Red Flag’ laws, as they would allow your firearms to be seized by a court order before you’ve even been convicted of a crime!
But earlier this year, Joe Biden signed a massive gun control bill into law that gave the DOJ $750,000,000 to dole out to ‘red’ states that pass ‘Red Flag’ laws — making this a far more dangerous threat.
Our legislation would ban the use of federal money to enforce any form of ‘Red Flag Gun Seizures’ laws.
Second, Georgia Gun Owners will be going ‘all in’ on the Second Amendment Preservation Act (SAPA), which instructs Georgia cops to enforce Georgia’s gun laws -– preventing Biden from using them to enforce his tyrannical gun control agenda.
The election doesn’t change the fact that Biden can continue to attack our gun rights through Executive Orders.
But Biden’s handlers are counting on our cops to do his dirty work and enforce these Executive Orders. SAPA law would prevent that, and without the free use of Georgia cops, Biden simply wouldn’t have the manpower to enforce his agenda.
We filed SAPA legislation last session, but it took a backseat in Atlanta over our successful fight for Constitutional Carry. But with that out of the way, it’s time for SAPA!
Finally, we will be working on legislation that would increase the protections offered to Georgians under our current Stand-Your-Ground law.
While Georgia passed a version of this in 2006, our current laws require gun owners to prove that our actions were innocent following a self-defense shooting.
Dozens of other states have reversed that, giving the assumption of innocence to gun owners following a use of force, and requiring the state to prove their guilt in court.
After all, this is America. And we believe in the idea that we’re innocent until proven guilty. Our self-defense laws don’t reflect this, and it’s time that they do.
But the fact is that despite our massive majorities in Atlanta, passing bills of this size is going to be a big task.
Georgia Gun Owners is going to have to do what we do best; mobilize our army of gun owners using direct mail, internet and digital ads, and our powerful email program to inundate the Capitol with grassroots pressure from gun owners!
But running these programs — at the size we’ll need to run them — isn’t cheap. And after the massive amount we just spent on our wildly successful 2022 election program, we simply don’t have the funds we need to do all of this.
That’s why I hope that you will renew your membership in Georgia Gun Owners immediately, so that we have the ammo we need to keep fighting for you in 2023!
The amount of your renewal is up to you. But we have a tremendous opportunity to advance the Second Amendment in Atlanta this year.
I know that’s asking a lot, but the stakes are high and we MUST seize this opportunity.
Any GGO member who renews for $75 or higher will receive a newly redesigned T-Shirt absolutely free as our way of saying ‘thank you’ for your continued support.
The amount of your membership renewal is up to you, but with everything that we’re facing in 2023, please act fast!
Georgia Gun Owners
P.S. While we didn’t see a ‘Red Wave’ in D.C. on election night, gun owners appear to have reclaimed the House. At the same time, gun owners here in Georgia crushed Stacey Abrams and gun-grabbers across the state!
This is the momentum that Georgia Gun Owners needs to advance a massive package of pro-gun bills in Atlanta during the upcoming legislative session!
But we need your help to mobilize gun owners. Please renew your membership for 2023 with a generous donation of $125, $75, or at least $35 right away!
