Gun safety activist Lucy McBath wins House seat in Georgia

Georgia Democrat challenger Lucy McBath defeated Republican Rep. Karen Handel to be elected to Congress. Handel conceded the race early Thursday morning. McBath, a political newcomer, was thrust into the national spotlight in 2012, when her 17-year-old son, Jordan Davis, was shot dead at a Florida gas station. McBath later became a spokesperson for gun safety group Moms Demand Action.

Can she give a definition of "assault rifle"? If not, the "gun safety" conversation is over.

"Gun Safety"? So shes an advocate for keeping your finger off the trigger until ready to fire, against muzzle sweeping, and double checking that the weapon is cleared? I mean, I'm all for gun safety, but I dont know if we need laws for best practices. Maybe she was a bootcamp range warden or something.

Georgia is chock full of redneck and country folk who like to hunt. I also understand that northern and eastern part of the state has a wild pig problems. If you take their guns away they wont only be unhappy but people will have to pay tax dollars to kill off a lot off hogs eating up crops and that will infuriate people.
