 LYING LUCY MCBATH CALLS FOR A
“GUN-FREE SOCIETY”

Alpharetta, GA – The two faces of Lucy McBath were revealed when Representative Lucy McBath (D-GA) called for a “gun-free society” after repeatedly telling voters that she supports the Second Amendment. During a press conference held on June 4, 2019, in Washington, DC, McBath said: “I hope you take this charge back to your communities, and stand-up for a gun-free society.”

McBath’s campaign website says the following about the 2nd Amendment:

While I support the 2nd Amendment rights of Georgians, we can still advocate for common sense gun violence prevention to make our communities safer.

In response, former Congressman Karen Handel issued the following statement:

“Lucy McBath says one thing to voters here at home and something else to the media and her out-of-state donors.  She says she supports the Second Amendment – except when she doesn’t.  She lied to us about actually living in Tennessee.  She said she was against outside money funding campaigns — while Michael Bloomberg and other liberal organizations were spending millions to buy the seat for her.  Now, she’s lying to us again.  Lying Lucy cannot be trusted. The people of the 6th district deserve a Representative that they can trust, someone who shares their values. I look forward to taking on ‘Lying Lucy’ and bringing back honest, principled leadership for the people of GA6.”

 

Karen Handel is the former Congressman for Georgia’s 6th District and is running to retake the seat in 2020. Handel became Georgia’s first Republican woman elected to Congress in 2017 and was also Georgia’s first Republican Secretary of State.
