    the metro Atlanta area, and yes, the drivers are unforgiving and just plain dangerous (I cut my teeth in NYC and Boston traffic), and I meant what I said about somebody now with a firearm taking a pot shot due to road rage is even better odds.  

    No thank you.  I love life and my, family too.  Heck, maybe some nutbag with a firearm thinking they were Dirty Harry would shoot you just for looking at them "wrong way".

    Uh.....No.  GA is not on my top travel lists unless it's driving through to get to somewhere else.  

    I feel bad for those that live in a state where the insane have taken over the asylum, but then again, I too live in one as well just north of GA - North Carolina.  That is why it's imperative to get the looney politicians out of office and get better representation with a more ethical and moral agenda coupled with a common sense approach to legislation that benefits all.  We're trying and hoping the best here in NC as well as our Tar Heel Taliban have passed some pretty wacky lax restrictions and firearm laws in this state too regarding where they can carry concealed and such.

    I do understand your concerns, and the concerns of those that want firearms banned entirely, but I'm afraid it won't happen as that Genie has left the bottle decades ago.  It's time for better and tougher laws and a 50 state standard for firearm ownership, and heavy penalties for going around the system.  Add to that, get rid the "Stand Your Ground" BS as it has been demonstrated to be a failure and morally disgusting.

    By the way, I am licensed to carry concealed, but rarely if ever do I and I catch crap from my more 'firearm' friendly" gang about that.  But it's cool as they know I have strong opinions about the subject that kind of do not match theirs, or the NRA's.

      I did say there should be regulation and the founders  I believe could not imagine the weaponry we have so if they were drawing up the gun rights today.. much would be changed and no assault rifles or semi authomatic.   Think hunting and yes Shotguns are used to hunt but the founders also did not have a supermarket on every corner .
      They ate what they killed and raised their animals.  They also didn't have a militarized police form.. ( another bad thing).   A constitution today would not resemble the original I suspect.
