From the state that won't legalize medical marijuana....
Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) signed legislation into effect on Wednesday paving the way for registered gun owners to carry their weapons into churches, schools, libraries and bars, USA Today reported.What is it with baggers and "Tyranny"?
“Today I will sign a gun bill that heralds self-defense, personal liberties and public safety,” Deal said at a press conference announcing the signing of House Bill 60. “While we still guard against tyranny, America today cherishes this right, so that people who follow the rules can protect themselves and their families from those who don’t follow the rules.”
Being a bagger, Deal lied to critics and the press:
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Deal responded to criticism of the bill by emphasizing that it covered “people who have their fingerprints taken, their backgrounds checked and they have been licensed to carry a weapon.”Sounds pretty good, right?
He's a lying scumbag:
But according to the Washington Post, the nonpartisan state Senate Research Office found that HB 60 runs counter to Deal’s assurances, because it removes the fingerprinting requirement for new gun licensees, and also abolished a state requirement that gun merchants maintain records of their sales and purchases.So, now, Georgia is MORE DANGEROUS than it was just yesterday.
It also expands the state’s “stand your ground” law to allow firearm owners to invoke the statute if they shoot and kill someone in self-defense, even if their gun is not registered.
I am not in support of 'gun bans' BUT I am in rabid support of strict regulations on where they can be carried and particularly how they are stored and kept out of the reach of children and theft: This, however, is nuts. This is going to create more problems.
Everyday I drive to work, I have to deal with 5 or 6 4 way stops.
A lot of people seem extremely challenged by these simple things. Every time I sit at one and see people unsure of when to go, cutting in line or some other dumbass move, I think of guns and I think of stand your ground laws.
If these bozos cannot even handle a friggin 4-way stop, how in the hell are they supposed to manage a gun?
Anybody know where I can get a Kevlar burqua for my wife? Something stretchy?
