Ossoff caught in a lie about support for 2nd Amendment

Jon Ossoff has been caught changing his tune in an effort to appeal to audiences outside the metro-Atlanta airwaves. From the AJC:

But outside the city’s expensive TV market, a different sort of messaging is going on. Witness this ad that aired in Savannah and other mid-sized cities this month. Says Ossoff:

“Nothing’s more important than keeping Georgians safe. I’ll fight for Georgia’s military bases. I’ll defend our Second Amendment. And police officers put their lives on the line to protect us. Of course I don’t support defunding the police.”

Ossoff brandishes an “F” rating from the National Rifle Association, but has the endorsement of Everytown for Gun Safety. Advocating for gun rights has not been front-and-center in his campaign.

“This has become too typical of lying liberal Jon Ossoff, as he is now trying to cover up his radical anti-Second Amendment record from Georgians,” said NRSC spokesperson Paige Lindgren. “His false claims and lies about protecting the Second Amendment are an effort to pander to one audience in part of the state while appeasing his base in another.”
