Billionaire Gun-Grabbers Win in Washington, But Anti-Gunners Defeated in Senate Races
By Harold Hutchison
The mid-term elections held on 4 November were a mixed bag for supporters of the Second Amendment. While major victories included the demotion of anti-gun Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) to Senate Minority Leader, there were also some significant setbacks.
Anti-gun Senators like Mark Udall (D-CO), Kay Hagan (D-NC), and Mark Pryor (D-AR) were turned out by pro-Second Amendment voters in favor of Cory Gardner (pictured), Thom Tillis, and Tom Cotton, respectively. Anti-gun Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) was hed to 42% and faces a runoff in December that she is expected to lose (support NRA-PVF to make sure!). Anti-gun candidates running for Senate seats in Iowa (Bruce Braley), Kentucky (Alison Lundergan Grimes), and Montana (Amanda Curtis) were also defeated by pro-Second Amendment candidates. The news was not all good in the Senate, as gun-grabber Mark Warner (D-VA) lead Ed Gillespie by about 12,000 votes as of Wednesday morning, and anti-gun Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) also held on.
