    Georgia's 2 new Democrat Senators, Warnock and Osoff, will vote for gun control bills, and there is no amount of letter writing we can do to stop it.

    This bill will pass the Senate, and Biden will sign it into law. It is a done deal.

    The only way to stop this one is if it gets overturned in the Supreme Court.

    Don't mean to sound pessimistic, it is just the reality of having all three branches of government controlled by Democrats.

    So you are saying we shouldn't bother contacting our congressmen and senators, letting them know we are unhappy with they way they are representing us?

    That is defeatist and one reason why we are in this situation in the first place.

    You fight and keep fighting. If they knock us down, we get up and stay on the attack. Don't ever roll over and let them win. Maybe we will lose a battle here and there, but remind them that we won't give up!

    It doesn't matter if your rep is a great guy and usually votes 2nd. If they don't stand up every time, let them know you are not happy!

    Even if your congressmen is a bleeding heart liberal, let them know you are not happy. Don't let them beat you down. There are people in Cali and NY still fighting. They don't just give up and say it's a done deal.

    Be an anti-SJW. Be a squeaky wheel like they are.

    We can't afford to just give up ground. We will never get it back!

    So can you identify the 10 Republican senators that will go along with busting the filibuster? Unless that happens, it is not a done deal.

    If the filibuster survives:

    The Democrats have been threatening for a decade. Gun control appears to be the lever. Then after the filibuster is gone the Democrats can pass their election "reform" and pack the SOTUS too.

    Senate rules are set by a simple majority, the filibuster doesn't apply to Senate rules. That how the Senate rule requiring 60 votes for judges was overturned. First by the Democrats under Harry Reid for all judges except SCOTUS. Then McConnell did it for SCOTUS judges.

    If Joe Manchin folds its over for the filibuster.....

    The filibuster can be overturned issue-by-issue. Gun laws would probably be the last for which this would happen.

    I’m not saying not to fight, but writing letters to the 2 GA Democrat senators will do absolutely no good.

    If you are in a state where the senators might vote against then do, but GA’s Osoff and Warnock are as anti gun as Pelosi and Schumer.

    You could try reminding them that they work for the voters of Georgia, not for Chuck Schumer...

    That is not how they see it. They are activists. Their views are not really majority view of most GA voters, they don't really represent most Georgians.
