Congress will now have a strong pro-Second Amendment addition in Marjorie Taylor Greene. The incoming freshman Congresswoman won her race in Georgia’s 14th Congressional District.
Greene won her race against Democrat candidate Kevin Van Ausdal by an emphatic 74.8 to 25.2 percent margin. This race was so lopsided that Greene’s Democrat rival dropped out months beforehand. President Donald Trump endorsed Greene previously on the campaign trail.
The congresswoman-elect went through a lot during her 2020 campaign. She originally competed in a stacked primary where she received approximately 40 percent of the vote. Because of the Georgia law, her race was forced to go to a runoff against milquetoast Republicans rival John Cowan, who received second place in the first round of the primary.
She ended up defeating Cowan 57.1 to 42.9 percent in the runoff and then went on to be an overwhelming favorite in the general election. BLP previously covered Greene’s staunch pro-gun and pro-life credentials, which made her a favorite among grassroots conservatives nationwide. Her victory has galvanized conservatives and shows that no matter how a given election night may go at the presidential level, there will always be staunch conservative options that can enter Congress and keep the other branches in check.
Repealing the series of unconstitutional gun grabs that D.C. has imposed on lawful Americans will be a tall order, but it has to be done if we want to restore any semblance of constitutional governance to America. The way this is done is by electing people like Greene. Conservatives should try to learn from Greene’s success and replicate the model for other races nationwide. One-by-one, seats across the nation will fall to America First conservatives once the right electoral strategies are implemented.
There’s no reason whatsoever to believe that the fight is over. As long as individuals like Greene can get elected, the fight to stand up against the tyranny of the administrative state will never die.
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.
