    I sent GSSA's President an email and this is what I received. I thought some of you in his district might be interested.

    Mr. Stone,
    The email that you sent to me is being forwarded to Bob Thornton for him to respond to your inquiries. He is the Vice President of GSSA. He and Steve Hardin were involved in this issue. I'm involved in a race for Congress to replace Congressman Charlie Norwood who passed away in February. There will be a special election on June 19th here in the 10th Congressional District. My total focus has been on the election. I'm eager to go to Washington to fight for returning to Constitutional government as James Madison meant for it to be. I started being active politically by lobbying in Washington for hunters' rights and Second Amendment rights as a VP for Safari Club International. I believe any law that interferes with a citizens God given right to own or use a firearm in a legal manner to be un-Constitutional. I'm eager to work ardently to remove those Federal gun control laws that are now on the books and fight against any new ones. Any help you and your organization can give me is greatly needed. Thank you.

    He'd get my vote if I were in his district.

    likewise. We need a new Political Party, the Constitutionalists. (tongue in cheek)

    I voted for him in June, and want to remind anyone in the 10th that the runoff is next Tuesday.

    Looks like it's a pretty sure thing although Whitehead hasn't conceded yet.

    He won the initial count, but there were still some overseas absentee ballots to be counted, but it doesn't appear there are enough ballots to overcome Broun's lead.
