Days After Democrat Warnock Pushes Gun Control – His Private Security Bill Shows He’s Spent Over $169K

When Joe Biden won the presidential election, many Conservatives were worried that the new administration would clamp down on certain freedoms.

Some were most concerned about the Democrat push to add more restrictions to the Second Amendment. Those who support the Constitution routinely remind us that 2A “shall not be infringed.”

But certain Democrat leaders like Sen. Raphael Warnock continue to push for more gun control — despite the fact that he evidently uses the protection of guns.

Like many public leaders, Warnock’s campaign used a private security force during his run, which most Americans obviously can’t afford.

And this service likely doesn’t just use tasers and pepper spray.

At the same time, Warnock has a history of standing up against 2A, and he has routinely supported legislation that would gimp the Second Amendment in one way or another.

Except now, it seems the Democrat leader has no problem paying a lot of money to be protected by the same weapons he continues to deride.

From Fox News:

Sen. Raphael Warnock has been calling for gun control in recent weeks, despite his campaign spending over $100,000 on ‘security services’ from a private security firm as recently as February.

Filings released by the Federal Election Commission show Warnock’s campaign paid $60,956 to Executive Protection Agencies, a private security detail located in Atlanta.

The campaign also shelled out another $76,000 for protection services between October and November of 2020. This brings the total spent to around $169,000.

And again, we’re probably talking about armed individuals protecting Warnock and his entourage.

Back in 2014, this particular Democrat slammed the “Stand Your Ground” laws, which allow gun owners to protect themselves with deadly force. Warnock interpreted this as follows:

No, it’s not a ‘Stand Your Ground’ law. It’s a shoot-first law. Shoot first, ask questions later.

He also railed against the Safe Carry Protection Act during some of his sermons, according to the Washington Free Beacon. So basically, he’s been against 2A in some way for years.

But like many other public figures who push for more gun control, they’re often protected by the very things they appear to hate.

It’s difficult not to use the word “hypocrisy” in these instances, isn’t it?

One could argue people like Warnock don’t want guns to disappear entirely, but they apparently want to make it as difficult as possible for a regular civilian to own and carry a firearm.

And to many staunch Republicans and Conservatives, this qualifies as a direct assault on the Constitution.

Key Takeaways:

  • Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock has a long history of pushing for more gun control.
  • But records show that his campaign spent $169,000 on protection services between fall 2020 and this year.
  • To many who support the Constitution, this comes across as hypocritical.
