When in Rome: Second Amendment Patriots are Organizing a Pro-Gun Rally in Rome, Georgia

Published

on

After the successful gun rights rally in Richmond, Virginia, Second Amendment activists are setting up a rally in Rome, Georgia for this Saturday, January 25, 2020.

Organizers are still coordinating who will speak at the event.

The rally will take place at the American Legion Farm, 493 Jones Bend Road NE, at 1 p.m.

“We’re only one election away from being ruled by people who have the power to pass laws and don’t care about the Constitution,” organizer Chris Ashley declared. “I feel like all patriotic Americans should be willing to stand up and be preemptive about it instead of being reactive about it.”

Ashley hopes that Floyd County becomes a “sanctuary county” in case any kind of gun control legislation is enacted.

Ashley says that all three of the Floyd County Sheriff candidates — Republicans Tom Caldwell, Dave Roberson, and Ronnie Kilgo— are penned down as speakers.

Additionally, U.S. Congressional candidates Dr. John Cowan and Marjorie Green will be featured as speakers.

The president of Georgia Gun Owners, Inc., Patrick Parsons, is also expected to appear.

Ashley claims that members of the local legislative delegation in addition to city and county elected officials have been invited as speakers for the rally.

It’s safe to say the Richmond protest was a success.

Now other states are following suit by launching protests of their own.

The fight to protect the Second Amendment is now more heated than ever.

Gun grabbing-politicians want to hack away at gun ownership one regulation at a time, so this fight will definitely be draw out.

Protests are only the first step.

These must be followed up with concrete electoral and legislative actions that ensure the protection of the Second Amendment, while also repealing anti-gun legislation currently on the books.

Undoubtedly, gun rights will be one of the most controversial issues headed into the 2020 elections.

Here’s Where Hispanics Will Play a Decisive Role in the 2020 Elections

Published

In 2020, Hispanics will leave their mark in presidential elections.

During the present election cycle, Hispanics will be the country’s largest ethnic minority in a U.S. presidential contest. 32 million Hispanics will be expected to cast their ballots in the 2020 presidential election. They will make up 13.3 percent of all eligible voters. That said, the number of Hispanic eligible voters is significantly lower than the 60 million Hispanics who live in the country.

Nationally speaking, 62 percent of Hispanic registered voters identify with or lean towards the Democratic Party  On the other hand, 34 percent hold similar inclinations with the Republican Party.

Pew Research Center highlighted five key facts about the geographic distribution of the Latino vote for the 2020 presidential election:

Here are five facts about the geography of Latino voters for the upcoming 2020 presidential election:

1 Two-in-three Latino eligible voters live in just five states. California alone holds roughly a quarter of the nation’s Latino electorate, with 7.9 million Latino eligible voters. Texas is second with 5.6 million, followed by Florida (3.1 million), New York (2.0 million) and Arizona (1.2 million).

2 Latinos make up the highest share of eligible voters in New Mexico (43%). The other top states are California (30%), Texas (30%), Arizona (24%) and Florida (20%).

3 Texas’ 20th Congressional District is home to 359,000 Latino eligible voters, the highest number of any congressional district in the country. Texas’ 16th, 34th and 23rd districts, and Florida’s 26th District, round out the top five, each with at least 321,000 Latino eligible voters.

4 California’s 40th District has the nation’s highest share (80%) of Latinos among its eligible voter population. Texas is home to the next four highest districts, where at least seven-in-ten eligible voters in each are Latino: the 34th District (79%), 16th District (77%), 15th District (73%) and the 28th District (71%).

In 26 congressional districts, Latinos represent at least half of all eligible voters. Most are in California (11 districts) and Texas (eight districts). Florida (25th, 26th and 27th districts), Arizona (3rd and 7th districts), New York (15th District) and Illinois (4th District) also are home to congressional districts that meet this threshold.

5 Only about half of the nation’s 60 million Hispanics are eligible to vote – the smallest share of any racial or ethnic group. While the Hispanic population has grown rapidly in recent decades, many are not eligible voters. More than other racial or ethnic groups, many Hispanics are young (18.6 million are under 18 years old) or non-citizen adults (11.3 million, more than half of whom are unauthorized immigrants).

Hispanics will be one of the key constituents that will play a huge role in American politics from here on out. Despite all the media hype about them being a reliable bloc vote because of the GOP’s  supposedly tough stances on immigration restriction, many Hispanics do in fact support tighter controls on immigration. Additionally, in certain crucial swing states such as Florida, Hispanics are beginning to head on over to the Republican side.

Trump’s national populism, not Hispandering, is key in making sure that Democrats don’t turn the Hispanic vote into a dominate segment of its coalition. All things considered, Hispanics will play a pivotal role in leading Donald Trump  to victory on November 3.
