It is always a good day when my National Rifle Association’s magazine “American Rifleman” arrives in the mail. I still do a traditional magazine with my membership to one of the best organizations that you can be in, a member of the NRA. I never get tired of reading them and going through them cover to cover the moment they arrive. At this point in my life the articles about guns and new gun reviews are interesting, but I find the legislative information much more compelling. The NRA does a good job of governing politics and legal challenges to the 2nd Amendment, especially at election time, which this particular issue was all about. And sure enough, the NRA knew I was an Ohio resident and they had a nice little score card so that voters in Ohio would know who was good with the NRA and who wasn’t and of course my eye caught George Lang’s name quickly as I was reading. Of course, George Lang is a person I talk about a lot, he’s not only running for the 4th Senate Seat in Ohio, but he’s a really good guy whom I’ve known for a long time. His rival, Kathy Wyenandt is a former school levy supporter for the Lakota school system, and we all know what a mess that situation is in. By looking at that report card you can tell a lot about the upcoming election, and as they always do, the NRA captures that information for potential voters to make decisions with, and they do their part to keep our republic alive and running.
It doesn’t surprise me that George Lang has an A from the NRA. He has been a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment for as long as I’ve known him, which is now going into its second decade. I can attest to his enthusiasm for the rule of law and how he understands that guns are the central elements of a free society. He and I meet often to go shooting just to relax and get away from the pressures of daily life, and he is a great shooter. He works with some of my big guns like a true pro, including my Smith & Wesson .500 magnum and my .50 caliber Desert Eagle which is my carry gun. He works with them as if they were just little .22 pistols which is always refreshing to me. Sometimes other people show up for our shooting excursions, but a lot of the time its just George Lang who comes and displays a real love for a great American pastime, a little time on the range and some friendly conversation always with a top class emphasis. He and I have done that kind of thing for years, but especially during the Covid-19 drama of 2020 when the pressure was greatest for society to collapse altogether did he really show what kind of person he was by never buckling and staying close to the American spirit by continuing to come to the range to shoot some of the big guns and relish in the elements of those meetings. I can say that George Lang is top class because I’ve seen him often especially when things in the world were less than optimal, and his leadership is as stable as his hands can shoot straight—literally.
If there was ever clearer evidence at what kind of America Republicans want and how Democrats envision their point of view, that NRA scorecard tells the story. Generally speaking, Republicans do well on the NRA report card, and Democrats are terrible. Not all Democrats do bad however, there are a few on the list that have Bs, but generally speaking, most Democrats get an F, specifically Kathy Wyenandt who is running against George Lang for the 4 District Senate Seat. Now I know her too a bit, not nearly as well as George, but I’ve come to know her over the last several years as the school levy issues at Lakota have been off the front burner. She’s a nice person, engaging, speaks well, but its quickly obvious that she has a lot to learn in life. Her most obvious political attribute is that she helped win the 2013 Lakota levy after three times in trying and it was the first one that I wasn’t the vocal spokesman talking to the media. Area Republicans got caught playing an early version of the “WOKE” game on that one and Sheriff Jones stepped in that year to support the levy which Lakota made a deal with him to hire resource officers, and the levy won by less than 1% of a margin. Hardly a big convincing victory, but that is the kind of political experience Kathy is bringing to her campaign, and among Ohio Democrats, they consider her to be one of their best. So they are in a pretty miserable situation.
The NRA scorecard tells the story pretty well if you understand what you are looking at. Such as in Kathy’s case, she has an F with the NRA, but she is “pro education” with her work at Lakota as her calling card. Well, in 2020 people learned what being “pro education” has always meant, which I’ve been talking about for longer than I’ve known George—it means pro Black Lives Matters, it means a socialist takeover of our education curriculum, it means that government schools take over the teaching responsibilities over parents—it means all those things and more. For context, look at all the trouble Lakota has had lately in joining the Black Lives Matters terrorist efforts by going after a conservative school board member purely because he refused to bend the knee to radical Marxist terrorists. Kathy Wyenandt fought to pass that 2013 levy in a so-called effort to save kids, but the money ended up giving raises to teachers in the Marxist oriented labor union that eventually paved the way for a full endorsement of Black Lives Matters propaganda. As you look up and down that scorecard from the NRA it makes you wonder about Democrats like Kathy, why so many of them have an F. What kind of America do they want?
Of course I have spelled out the kind of America that Democrats want, and they don’t want people owning guns who could stop them in destroying our nation, and turning loose terrorist groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matters on us defenseless. That’s why they get an F with the NRA, and why generally Republicans who want to defend American values get an A. And why anybody would want to vote for their own destruction is perplexing, but there are some who still support Democrats these days even if the best of them are like Kathy Wyenandt, who doesn’t look like a foot, but is paving the way for all the wrong things in America, filling our schools with socialists and fighting to get guns out of our society so that the Democrats can take over everything and destroy the American way of life. They put lipstick on a pig and try to sell it as bacon on a Saturday morning but they don’t explain to anybody about the slaughterhouse in between. But George Lang gets it, he understands guns and is a true supporter, and the NRA understands who is against American values and who is for them and it is for that reason that I cherish each and everyone of the NRA magazines that come to me throughout the year. Each of them are real treasures that I never tire of, especially as the election of 2020 gives us all an opportunity to take back our country so far without guns, but at the election booth.
