All Eyes On GA Senate Race: Democrat Candidate Jon Ossoff Says He Wants To Ban “Semi Automatic Rifles” and “High Capacity” Magazines

Atlanta, GA — The eyes of millions of gun owners across the country are glued to the two runoff races in Georgia scheduled for January 5th.  The two runoff races will determine whether or not the Republican party keeps a majority in the United States Senate.

Meanwhile, the Democrat in one of those runoff races, candidate Jon Ossoff (D-GA) is still vigorously campaigning for gun control.  On this website, he promises to ban on the sale of semi-automatic rifles and “high capacity” magazines.

Gun Owners Beware

On his campaign website Ossoff proudly says, “I support a ban on the sale of semi-automatic rifles (“assault weapons”) and high-capacity magazines to the general public.”

These “assault weapons” would include AR-15s, AK-47s, and variants of both platforms.  It would also included literally millions of other commonly-owned semi-automatic rifles — some of the most popular firearms in America.

According to Breitbart News, the “low end” estimate of privately-owned AR-15s in the United States is 18 million.  That doesn’t begin to count the AK-47s and the staggering number of other semi-automatic rifles in America’s homes.

In addition to his logistical nightmare, Ossoff wants to go after what he calls ‘high capacity’ magazines, as well.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation estimates that there are an estimated 79.2 million privately owned 30-round rifle magazines in America.

But for most of these anti-gun leftists, they consider any magazine with that holds more than 10 rounds to be a ‘high capacity magazine.’

If  readers go with that number, there are at least 088.6 million privately owned rifle magazines in America that meet that qualification.

And that’s before we talk about the many tens of millions of pistol magazines that hold 11 rounds or more.

As though those two points weren’t radical enough, Ossoff is also promising to pass a Red Flag law, wants universal background checks for gun purchases, and will “close the gun show loophole,” among other controls.

The Stakes Couldn’t Be Higher

Jon Ossoff will face his Republican opponent Senator David Perdue on January 5th.  Perdue is a solid Second Amendment supporter — and certainly not an anti-gun, radical leftist like Ossoff.

The stakes couldn’t be higher, as the Ossoff/Perdue showdown is one of two runoff races that will determine the status of the Senate.

Will control of the Senate remain in Republicans hands or will it falls to the anti-gun Democrats?

While President Trump is embattled in the contest over the presidential election, this election is Georgia is just as critical — especially if Trump loses in court.
