    Your gun rights may be hanging in the balance, depending on the
    outcome of elections in Minnesota and Georgia.

    The Democrats currently control 58 seats in the Senate. If they get
    to 60 (the number needed to overcome a filibuster), it will be nearly
    impossible to stop the gun control agenda of incoming President
    Barack Obama.

    The Minnesota Senate race between radical anti-gunner Al Franken and
    pro-gun Sen. Norm Coleman is coming down to the provisional and
    absentee ballots. Sen. Coleman's lead of fewer than 200 votes is
    slipping away, while Franken and his legal team are busily trying to
    steal the election.

    With the growing possibility of Democrats getting to 59 Senate seats,
    all eyes are now focused on Georgia.

    Pro-gun Senator Saxby Chambliss is in a tight December 2nd run-off

    Saxby is "A" rated by Gun Owners of America. His opponent, Jim
    Martin, refused to respond to the Gun Owners of America candidate
    survey, but he has an anti-gun record from his days in the Georgia
    State House.

    No wonder that Sen. Charles Schumer, the anti-gun extremist from New
    York, is so excited about this race. Schumer, who heads the
    Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, is pouring tons of money
    into Martin's campaign.

    But the stakes are much higher than just getting another anti-gun
    Senator. If Democrats can get to the magic number of 60, the minority
    Senators will lose their ability to stop any gun control legislation
    that is anointed by the leadership. Therefore, a world of
    possibilities opens up for anti-gun Senators like Dianne Feinstein,
    Chuck Schumer, **** Durbin and Frank Lautenberg.

    President-elect Obama and the Senate leadership know what is at stake
    in Georgia. That's why they’re descending on the state by the
    thousands and pouring in millions of dollars.

    Pro-gunners need to do the same. If Saxby loses this seat, there
    will be dire ramifications for years to come. Without the ability to
    stop the anti-gun leadership, we could see:

    * The reauthorization of the Clinton gun ban;
    * Legislation to close down gun shows;
    * A ban on .50 caliber rifles;
    * Massive expansions of the NICS background check system;
    * More and more gun stores put out of business;
    * Ratification of an anti-gun UN treaty;
    * Lock-up-your-safety requirements like personalized handguns, and

    Gun owners, sportsmen and anyone concerned about the erosion of
    liberty in this country should engage in this battle in Georgia.

    If you live in or near Georgia and can volunteer to make calls, knock
    on doors, etc, please call or e-mail the Chambliss campaign right
    away. Go to for contact information.

    Saxby also needs the financial resources to reach as many voters as
    possible in the final days before the election. Please go to

    This race is extremely close. Senator Saxby Chambliss has stood with
    gun owners in the U.S. Congress. It's time for us to stand with Saxby
    now. Please visit to help Sen. Chambliss win
    this election.

    The Georgia race turned out to be a lot closer than it should have been. He'll win the runoff on Dec 2.
    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.
