On June 23, 2020, the Charleston City Council unanimously voted on a resolution authorizing the removal of the statue and monument dedicated to John C. Calhoun, a 19th century South Carolina politician and one of the greatest statesmen in American history.
Per the resolution, the statue and monument will be relocated to a museum or academic institution at a later date.
“When I was approached with the idea of moving the statue from Marion Square, I was very concerned, because I know people on both sides are very passionate,” Council member Kevin Shealy stated. “But I believe the statue can be relocated to a place where it can be safely displayed for those who choose to visit it, and I believe we should move it there. I just believe it’s the best solution and the best compromise.”
City leaders voted for the resolution in response to multiple days of protests in front of the statue, which is located in Charleston’s Marion Square. Agitators ended up vandalizing the monument after Charleston mayor John Tecklenburg announced his decision to move forward with this resolution on June 18. This incident led to 9 arrests of individuals who were charged with property destruction.
“For those of you who did harm to our city, you’ve accomplished nothing here, other than adding to your criminal record” Shealy declared in a speech. “This has nothing to do with you. You’re not the reason for my decision tonight. … I’m going to support relocating the Calhoun statue, because it’s a wedge that’s splitting us apart. I support this … for hundreds of Black leaders who’ve made our city better every day. … My hope and prayer is that everyone will come together in Charleston. That’s why I’m making this decision.”
Calhoun served as a Congressman, Senator, Secretary of War, Secretary of State, and Vice President throughout his political career. He was a staunch defender of preserving states’ rights and an advocate of nullification of unconstitutional laws passed at the federal level.
Jon Ossoff’s Endorsement by Giffords Proves He is an Anti-Gun Stooge
Georgia Voters Who Care About the Second Amendment Should Reject Both Democrat Candidates
Now that former Vice President Joe Biden is the presumptive president-elect, conservatives are busy re-grouping.
Although the presidential election appears to be sorted out, electors still have to cast their ballots on December 14. On top of that, there’s still unsettled business in Georgia.
While a 50-50 split by no means guarantees that gun control will be passed at will, this puts Democrats one step closer towards implementing their anti-gun fantasies.
The case for Perdue is pretty simple. He’s a solid immigration patriot and a staunch Second Amendment supporter. He can be counted on to keep the Left in check.
Ossoff is currently endorsed by Giffords, one of the fastest growing civilian disarmament lobbies in America. This organization was founded by former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and has been increasingly active in promoting anti-Second Amendment politicians over the last few years.
Giffords’ endorsement of Ossoff makes sense. According to Ossoff’s platform, he plans on prohibiting the sales of semiautomatic rifles and “high capacity” magazines. Not to mention, he wants to check off every other item on the gun grabber checkbox by supporting red flag confiscation orders, universal background checks, tighten the so-called “gun show loophole”, and implement licensing for semiautomatic rifles and handguns that millions of Americans already own.
Ossoff’s anti-gun endorsement list is quite diverse. AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News called attention to the fact that “Ossoff is also endorsed by the Mike Bloomberg-founded gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety. He is also endorsed by Everytown’s subsidiary gun control group, Moms Demand Action.”
When Gabby Giffords’ organization gave Ossoff their endorsement, they were very explicit about the intention behind endorsing Ossoff, revealing that they are “working to unseat an NRA-backed incumbent.”
An Ossoff victory, along with Raphael Warnock winning his race against Kelly Loeffler, would be big victories for Gun Control Inc. The anti-gun lobby is hungry and they’ll need a Senate majority in order to expand federal gun control.
January 5, 2021 is the pivotal date that will determine the balance of the U.S. Senate. Georgia voters have clear choices in Perdue and Loeffler. A vote for Ossoff and Warnock is a green light for Second Amendment infringements.
