What’s with Democrats and their inability to admit losing an election? No no– I’m not talking about Hillary Clinton. I’m talking about Stacey Abrams. Remember her? She’s Georgia’s failed gubernatorial candidate. We’re talking about the woman who co-sponsored a bill that would have allowed authorities to take “assault weapons” from gun owners in the state of Georgia. Remember how she responded to that question?
At the time, Jake Tapper asked, “When you were a state lawmaker in 2016, you co-sponsored a bill that would have allowed Georgia state authorities to take away so-called assault weapons from current gun owners. Most similar bans would grandfather in existing weapons of that sort, semiautomatic rifles that are called assault weapons. So, is that your current position, that law-abiding gun owners in Georgia should have to give up those weapons, if authorities deem it necessary?”
Her response? She was just trying to start a conversation!
“In the state of Georgia, you introduce legislation to start conversations,” Abrams replied. “I am happy to work with the legislature to figure out how we make an assault weapons ban work.”
You really dodged a bullet there, Georgia.
Anyway, that’s Stacey Abrams. Just so you know, she’s under the impression that she won her election, even though she lost.
“We had this little election back in 2018,” she said during a speech at the National Action Network. “And despite the final tally and the inauguration and the situation we find ourselves in, I do have very affirmative statement to make: We won.”

“On November 6, I said from the podium that we were going to not declare anything until every vote is counted, and on November 16, I decided to acknowledge the states of the election but I refused to concede,” Abrams said. “Because here’s the thing concession means to say something is right and true and proper.”
“I’m a good lawyer, and I understand that the law of the land said that Brian Kemp became governor that day and I acknowledge that, but you can’t trick me into saying it was right,” she added. “You can’t shame me into pretending what happened should have happened.”
