Anti-gun politicians are bound and determined to try and take ground in November. I can’t say that I blame them. They know damn good and well that GOP lawmakers have absolutely no reason to appease them and earn the ire of their pro-gun supporters. The only hope they have is to remove those lawmakers from office and put their people in place.
One such attempt is taking place in my native Georgia, where Democrat Lucy McBath is seeking to unseat Rep. Karen Handle.
Oh, and the Huffington Post wants to write all about how she just might do it, too.
Lucy McBath’s name is intimately tied to the issue of guns. The Democratic candidate for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District was first thrust into the national spotlight in 2012, when her black 17-year-old son, Jordan Davis, was shot dead at a Florida gas station by a white man complaining about loud music. McBath’s tragic loss became the fuel for years of advocacy for gun safety. And after the Parkland, Florida, school shooting in February, she set her sights on Congress.
