    One senator, Isakson, retired from serious health issues. The Gov appointed a temporary replacement. A special election next mon. IIRC, another takes place in two more years because that is when Isakson's original term was up.

    Lindsey Graham's seat is safe, he isn't going anywhere.

    McSally is in a tight race, which is kind of a surprise after her recent loss. I think she's going to pull it off.

    Tuberville is going to beat Jones like a red-headed stepchild in Gump's home state.

    I think Colorado is closer than most people think and I think Gardner might actually keep his seat, maybe. Hickenlooper brought gun control to Colorado, hopefully, gun-owning independents remember that...

    Texas, I have little hope left.

    Georgia will go red, again. Take it to the bank.

    Kansas has a seat up for grabs but we haven't elected a Democrat senator since 1932 (I think that's the longest streak in the country) so I'm not too worried.

    Best of luck to all of the others. There may be some tight races.

    That’s because his campaign thinks they can cheat enough to win. Pray they’re wrong.

    Colorado will be close. Hickenlooper. gun control as well as his recent conviction for ethics violations and refusing to show up to the hearings. He isn't attending planned debates. He was always a lacky for the liberal agenda even if he knew it was wrong.

    If independents are paying attention Gardner will be retained.

    Mass LEGAL immigration has done severe damage to Texas and Arizona. Illegal immigration is just the icing on the cake for democrats.

    if the Republicans lose seats after this Democrat Shiat show, it’s time to fire the GOP and put a new party in to speak for conservatives.

    If the Dems take control we'll be arguing about pellet guns on GT

    "Scotland and Northern Ireland have licensing laws, but in England and Wales you do not need a licence to own most air guns.

    The power limit is set at a muzzle energy of 12ft.lb for air rifles and 6ft.lb for air pistols.

    Since 2004 it has also been illegal to sell, acquire or transfer an air weapon that uses a self-contained gas cartridge, and existing owners had to apply for licences.

    All other air guns are legal to own and shoot.

    Owners have to be at least 14 years old, although you cannot buy one until you are 18.

    You can shoot on private land if you have permission, but it is illegal to shoot within 15m of a road if it would cause nuisance or danger.

    And pellets must not leave the land where you have permission to shoot.

    Under 14s must be supervised by an adult over 21."

    If after what we've seen the last few years, we surrender our weapons, then we get what we deserve.
