Barr Out in Georgia Congressional Race
Rep. Bob Barr, one of the Second Amendment's staunchest supporters in Washington, has been defeated in the Republican primary for Georgia's 7th District. The hotly-contested race pitted 4-term Congressman Barr against 5-term Congressman John Linder. The two veteran conservatives were thrown together in a race brought about by redistricting spearheaded by liberal Democrats, who had previously been unable to defeat Rep. Barr by conventional means. An accidental discharge of an antique firearm at a recent Barr fundraiser was used as a wedge in attack ads by the Linder campaign to turn moderates against Barr. Although Linder has a solidly-conservative voting record, Barr was enthusiastically supported by the NRA, and as a House leader in the impeachment of the former occupant of the White House (as well as a longtime supporter of the Second Amendment and anti-abortion initiatives), Barr was one of the most-hated foes of liberals.
Gunblast.com honors Rep. Barr and congratulates John Linder on his primary victory. We wish Rep. Linder well in the November general election.
We would like to thank Bob Barr for his outstanding service to our country. We wish him well in his future endeavors, and I am sure we have not heard the last from Bob Barr. The liberals won't be rid of him that easily!
In better election news from the state of Georgia, 5-term Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney was defeated in the Democrat primary by upstart former State Court judge Denise Majette. The rabidly anti-gun McKinney, whose views are so far removed from reality that even fellow liberals called her "Looney", was hurt by Republican cross-over voters and by revelations of pro-terrorist Palestinian fund-raising efforts resulting in a pro-Palestinian voting record in Congress.
