Democrat Senate Candidate Raphael Warnock is Against Letting Georgians Arm Themselves for Church Defense

Georgia’s Senate Race Has Strong Policy Implications for the Second Amendment

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reported that Democrat Senate Candidate is against allowing Georgians to arm themselves for church defense.

Hawkins cited Warnock’s opposition to a bill in 2014 that would have allowed lawful Georgians to carry firearms in churches.

The legislation in question, the Safe Carry Protection Act, expanded the number of places citizens could carry firearms for self-defense. At its core, the bill’s aim was to lower the number of gun-free zones, aka criminal safe spaces. The bill was eventually passed and went into effect on July 1, 2014. This legislation allows “Georgians with a license…[to] carry firearms into bars, libraries, schools, churches, government buildings and unsecured areas of airports.”

Warnock was taken aback by the passage of this law and declared, “When I say pass the peace, I don’t mean pass the piece.”

He continued, “The answer to America’s gun violence isn’t to encourage masses of people to carry guns.”

Warnock was quoted in Mother Jones where he opposed the expansion in carry regulations, observing, “Guns are not allowed in the state Capitol. But they want them in our churches and in our schools. Have you lost your mind.”

Under Georgia’s Safe Carry Protection Act, individual churches have the ability to determine if lawful individuals can carry in their premises. Texas adopted a similar measure in 2017, which lets churches use armed volunteer security teams to defend church attendees. Such a policy allowed Jack Wilson to heroically neutralize an armed assailant at the end of 2019  in a church setting,

Georgia’s runoff elections for the U.S. Senate will play a crucial role in determining the political fate of the country. Should Warnock and his colleague Jon Ossoff win these runoff races, the Second Amendment will likely hang in the balance. A 50-50 Senate with Kamala Harris as the tie-breaking vote is a scenario that gun owners should avoid at all costs. Pro-Second Amendment voters in Georgia should be voting Republican without hesitation during these runoff races.

According to a new Gallup Poll, Americans are not as keen on passing gun control as the corporate media would have many believe. 

Gallup surveyed 1023 American adults on how satisfied they were with the current gun laws. The pollster found that 56% of Americans felt dissatisfied with the existing gun laws, while 42% approved of the current measures.

Of those unsatisfied with current gun policy, 41% desire stricter gun control policies, while 8% want fewer restrictions. Only 7% want the existing laws to stay in place. Public opinion towards passing gun control has witnessed a notable decline over the last two years. Back in 2018, for example, only 46% of Americans wanted to pass more gun control.

Unsurprisingly, Gallup uses a cryptic title, “Americans Remain Largely Dissatisfied With U.S. Gun Laws” to imply that more Americans want more gun control. The mainstream media and gun control activists will pick on this survey headline and exploit the survey in marketing gun control.

“Given that dissatisfaction with gun laws is primarily seen among Democrats, it follows that people who are dissatisfied prefer stricter rather than more lenient laws,” the authors of the report assert.

With regards to partisan support of current gun laws, 69% of Republicans expressed their satisfaction with existing law. By contrast, only 22% of Democrats held similar views. Democrats have become increasingly anti-gun over time. In 2012, 40% of Democrats were in favor of the current firearms policy framework. 

President Joe Biden, a long-time proponent of federal gun control measures, recently met up with civilian disarmament groups such as Moms Demand Action per a report by BLP.

Democrats will try to sneak gun control in, but with the right amount of pressure on Democrats in swing states, any effort by the Biden administration will likely implode.
