Georgia’s Democrat gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams, who burned the state’s flag in her youth, once voted to confiscate guns.
She says she did it just to “start a conversation.”
Will anyone believe that reason?
And “start a conversation” about what, exactly? Actually banning guns.

From The Hill:
A decades-old news article about Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) burning the state flag, which at the time included the Confederate battle flag, resurfaced on Monday.
Abrams stood on the steps of the Georgia Capitol in 1992 and burned the Georgia state flag which was viewed as a symbol of white supremacy due to its Confederate design, The New York Times reported.
She was a freshman at Spelman College in Atlanta at the time and now her role in the protest is being reexamined as she faces a close race with her Republican opponent, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp.
The June 14, 1992 protest was documented in the local section of the Atlanta Journal and Constitution newspaper the following day.
