I believe the Ferengi and their Rules of Acquisition lay bare the overall intent of Wayne LaPierre’s callous statement about a good guy with a gun stopping a bad guy with a gun.
I think about all the times I didn’t vote because of my religious beliefs, and I get angry. How could I allow a religious construct to keep me from doing something so many Black people gave their lives for?
All that the GOP uses anymore in elections are lies and propaganda to create fear or anger in voters. What are the issues that Herschel Walker is running on? Werewolves vs. vampires? Legalizing Russian Roulette? Making abandoning children a competition in the Guinness Book of World Records (look out Elon, he's coming for you!)?
Georgians have a choice. They can re-elect Warnock, who, during his two years, has accomplished much for the state of Georgia. Or replace him with Walker.

We are at war right now and we just lost a major battle. Those intent on crushing our democracy are energized by their coup over the majority and they're frothing at the mouth to build upon it. This is a time for bold statements and rallying cries, for leadership on what specifically we can do now and what we need to do in November and beyond to win this war. This is the time for action.
