FORSYTH, GA- The high stakes Senate runoff race in Georgia is right around the corner, and it is all hands on deck.
On Monday, Sen.-elect Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) was out campaigning as part of a tour to promote voting for Republicans in the upcoming election. Lummis spoke with Breitbart News about how she sees Democrats threatening fundamental rights like the Second Amendment.
It’s so cute how Democrats think we’re just going to take this lying down…

Lummis, after appearing at Meadows Gun Club alongside Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), Rep.-elect Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), and other Republican leaders as part of Club for Growth Action’s statewide “Save America” bus tour, spoke with Breitbart News about Democrat plans to tax guns as a means of penalizing those who own them, Breitbart reported.
“They will tax guns,”
“They will tax every weapon as high as they can every year as a way to punish those of us who are gun owners.”
When speaking about incumbent Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA), Lummis described them as the country’s “last line of defense” due to the fact that at least one of them must win their race on January 5th, in order for Republicans to retain the senate majority.
“Literally our Bill of Rights is going to be under fire without Loeffler and Perdue,”

It is reported that the gun control policy President-elect Joe Biden has put forward includes registering all existing AR-15s and other guns Democrats deem “assault weapons” under the National Firearms Act. In addition, there is a provision that Americans must sell back or register their “high-capacity” magazines.
Breitbart News asked Lummis, a longtime lawmaker who grew up on her family’s ranch in Wyoming, what an ideal gun policy looks like from her perspective.
“It looks like the Second Amendment.”
“Really we don’t need more than the Second Amendment,”
She went on to say:
“It protects our rights to own guns. It protects our rights to defend our property. It protects, in my case, as a rancher, my right to protect my livestock from predators.
It is a tool that many of us use to enjoy harvesting wildlife for our winter food. It is a basic fundamental right that protects other rights. It protects us from the invasion of foreign governments, when you have a citizenry that knows how to use guns, knows when to use guns, and is prepared to protect and defend our nation.”
Lummis concluded that:
“the United States Senate in Republican hands is the last line of defense against crippling legislation”
If neither of the Republicans are able to secure a win, that would mean that the Senate would be split 50-50, leaving the deciding vote to Vice-President Joe Biden, and Kamala Harris, should President Trump’s lawsuits fall through.
Banks commented on this, saying:
“I’ve served with these radical Democrats the last four years in Congress. What they want to do to our country is dangerous,”
Cawthorn, who will be the youngest sitting member of Congress once he is sworn in, said:
“If we lose the Senate, then western North Carolina values will not be represented. They will take away our most basic rights. … They want to take away our right to be able to defend ourselves.”
It is expected that the voter turnout for the run off races should be high. Early in-person voting in Georgia began at some locations on Monday, December 14h, while absentee ballot requests have so far topped one million, according to the secretary of state’s office.

Heroes in two Texas church shootings send urgent warning to America, say Biden gun control policy “insane”
October 28, 2020
TEXAS – Two Texas heroes who stopped church shooters have an important message for law-abiding gun owners: without their firearms, they could not have stopped the killers, and Joe Biden is coming for those guns.
Jack Wilson and Stephen Willeford, who used their guns to stop church shooters in two separate instances in Texas, collaborated with the NRA to share a 5-minute, pointed video on the threat Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden poses to the ability of Americans to defend themselves lawfully.
In December 2019, Wilson was attending a service at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, TX. Wilson, volunteer head of security at the church, is also a firearms instructor and former reserve deputy for the local sheriff.
Within six seconds of an intruder opening fire upon innocent congregants, Wilson ended the threat with one well-placed shot to the head.

Willeford was at home in Sutherland Springs, TX, in November of 2017 when he heard shots fired at a nearby church. Grabbing his AR-15, Willeford hurried toward the sound of gunfire and drew out the killer, who had massacred 26 people and wounded 20 others. Willeford exchanged gunfire with the killer, who was wearing Class III body armor.
When the killer sped away in a vehicle, Willeford initiated a high speed chase and followed the killer to a field, where police later joined him. With the area secured using multiple AR-15s, the killer, wounded by Willeford, died of a self-inflicted gunshot to the head.
In the NRA video, the two “good guys with guns” called Joe Biden’s gun control plan “insane.”
Jack Wilson and Stephen Willeford both stopped church shootings in Texas with their guns.
That’s right, they’re those good guys with guns they talk about.
Now they’re back with an important message: to blow your mind with how INSANE Joe Biden’s gun control plan is. pic.twitter.com/8ILoId3GBt

The pair took on Biden’s publicly displayed ignorance on the subject of firearms and firearm-related self defense.
Regarding Biden’s recent advice at an ABC News Town Hall that “you shoot [an approaching criminal] in the leg, Wilson pointed out:

“I can make that shot.
“But that day in the church, I didn’t have the opportunity to shoot him in the leg.”
In reference to AR-15’s, or “AR-14”s as Biden called them in a clip on the video, Willeford took on Biden’s claim that Willeford “shouldn’t be carrying” that kind of gun.
“Hey Joe, this is the very AR-15… in my hands that stopped a mass shooter….
“It’s never committed a crime.
“If it was Hunter Biden, and your wife and family sitting in those pews at the church, would you still not want me to have this gun to protect them with?”
The pair also took aim at specifics in Biden’s policies and plans.
For instance, Wilson spoke of Biden’s alleged intent for a $200 tax on every magazine with a capacity higher than 10 rounds. He noted that such a tax would cost a firearms owner with 20 magazines $4000. Multiplied across the country, Wilson said, that would mean billions of dollars in taxes for law-abiding gun owners.
Wilson noted in the NRA video:
“[Biden] wants to make gun ownership only affordable to the elite.”
Wilson also pointed out that Biden’s website states he will ban the sale of so-called “assault weapons,” and noted that Biden is unlikely to stop there, as the Presidential candidate has stated that guns such as the handgun Wilson used should not be allowed in churches. Biden called the presence of guns in such places “irrational.”
Willeford also took on Biden’s plan to ban online firearm sales, pointing out how such transactions are actually accomplished, through a dealer with a Federal Firearms License and with a background check.
Willeford stated that this plan would prevent people from protecting themselves during these days of riots and chaos and would:
“put thousands of people out of business, and keep millions of others from buying firearms.”
In addition, Wilson discussed Biden’s plan to criminalize private transfers.
Indeed, in his plan, Biden says he will close the so-called “gun show and online sales loophole” by requiring background checks for all gun sales with “very limited exceptions, such as gifts between close family members.”
This means, said Wilson, that if a family friend is being stalked and feels that her life is in danger, he would face felony charges if he lent her a firearm for her to protect herself.
The pair, calling Biden’s planned moves “nuts,” include in their conclusion a warning to viewers to be concerned about the “unknown.”
Pointing out Harris as Biden’s running mate, and noting that Biden has promised to make Beto “Hell Yes” O’Rourke, who “supports forcible firearms confiscation,” at the helm of his gun control effort, the two gentlemen state:
“This means that all of this is only the beginning.
“And if you don’t comply, he promises to go door-to-door and take it.”
Indeed, O’Rourke, as a hopeful presidential candidate, promised police-enforced removal of weapons from those who were not willing to participate in his sweeping gun-buyback plan.
Harris, for her part, promised an end run around Congress during her quest for the Democratic presidential nomination, planning to enact gun control via executive action. Like O’Rourke, she also supports mandatory gun buybacks.
As for Biden, he certainly made his position clear in an interview with Anderson Cooper in August 2019. When Cooper asked him about gun owners who believe a Biden administration will come for their guns, Biden responded:
“You’re right if you have an assault weapon.”
Voter: You’ll take our guns.
Biden: You’re full of sh*t.[Earlier…]
Anderson Cooper: What do you say to people who say a Biden administration means they’re gonna come for my guns.
Biden: Bingo! You’re right if you have an assault weapon. pic.twitter.com/4lxeaZI2k7
