    Capitol troopers get assault rifles

    The Georgia State Patrol said it has not received a specific threat but believe the rifles are needed to launch a quick response.

    GSP Col. Mark McDonough told Channel 2’s Diana Davis the program has become a necessary part of law enforcement.

    “I know folks like to think about Utopia, but that's the world we live in. It’s a mean, ugly world out there,” he said.

    McDonough told Davis mass shootings at Columbine, Tucson and at a Colorado movie theater are proof it is a different world. He said the pistol side arms state troopers currently carry are not enough.

    Plus whatever fascist bullshit the republicans pull in Wisconsin and Michigan usually shows up here eventually, being an ugly, republican-controlled state.

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
