The National Rifle Association has endorsed Jeff Sessions over Tommy Tuberville in the upcoming Alabama Senate Republican primary runoff.
The gun rights advocacy group announced the endorsement in a press release Friday.
Jeff Sessions has a concrete and spotless record as a defender of the Second Amendment, as evidenced by his A+ career score from the NRA as a Senator and Attorney General.
Another letter from the NRA addressed to the Sessions campaign breaks down his accomplishments in protecting gun rights. The gun rights group cites Sessions’ shutdown of Operation Choke Point as Attorney General, an Obama administration program that sought to bully banks and financial institutions to shut off lawful gun stores and retailers from using their services.
His opponent, Tommy Tuberville, has no real record. He never even went so far as to support a Republican candidate for office before he himself ran for the Senate, let alone actually do anything to protect the Second Amendment from authoritarian liberals.
Tuberville is declining to debate Sessions on the issues facing Alabamians. The former football coach has aroused some suspicions from conservatives from his questionable policy positions on immigration. Tuberville has claimed that the United States “needs” 100,000 illegal immigrants crossing the southern border every month to provide cheap labor for big businesses. He’s hired Mark Zuckerberg’s former point man for pushing amnesty within the Republican Party as a campaign consultant.
The runoff election for the primary will be held March 31st. The winner will go on to face Democrat Doug Jones in the November general election.
2A Revolution: The Number of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in Ohio Almost Doubled In 2020
Gun grabbers take another L.
2020 was a monster year for gun sales. The unrest that ensued following the death of George Floyd motivated millions of Americans to get strapped. As cities became hellscapes filled with looting and random acts of violence, Americans learned real quick that the most reliable form of defense in such chaotic times is the right to bear arms.
In addition, a substantial number of Americans took their gun ownership to the next level by applying for concealed carry licenses. Some figures from states such as Ohio suggest that 2020 was also a record year for the issuance of concealed carry licenses. According to Cam Edwards of Bearing Arms, data from Attorney General Dave Yost’s office uncovered that approximately 100,000 concealed carry licenses were issued to Ohioans in 2020.
These figures are the most since 2016 and represent a 78% increase since 2019. More specifically, Ohio sheriffs issued 96,892 new concealed licenses, while 72.340 ohio gun owners completed license renewals. 2018 and 2019 were the top two years for renewed concealed firearms licenses.
Ohio is currently ranked as the 23rd most pro-gun state in the nation according to Guns & Ammo magazine’s ranking for most pro-gun states in America. Additionally, it’s ranked in a sub-par 34th place for states most friendly towards the concept of concealed carry. Ohio’s gun laws still need work, but the state is moving in the right direction after it recently passed a bill to strengthen its Stand Your Ground laws.
The Second Amendment remains a powerful issue and America First proponents would do well to embrace it during election season, when there are many angry gun owners ready to pounce on anti-Second Amendment incumbents and candidates.
