via CNN

Today Georgia said: Screw it!

...and will allow guns in airports, school zones, places of worship, and other awesome places to have guns.

What’s best about this list is that Georgia just keeps adding new and even more objectionable places to the list to distract from the previous places that made no sense to have a gun. Seriously Georgia, airports?!? Whatevs...

Despite this very huge step forward for freedum, the victory is not complete! Whiny limp-wristed Liebrul gun-grabbers succeeded in restricting freedum in a select few places like the Governor's workplace:

Quote:
Some critics have said it was hypocritical to allow guns in so many places but not the state Capitol. Deal addressed that perception in a question from reporters, saying the Capitol fell under a wider statewide provision that affects many government buildings, and it’s “a uniform carved-out area all across our state.”


So congratulations are in order to the newly more freer people of Georgia. No longer will the state’s responsible iron lovers have to be saddled with leaving their guns in their hot cars without water or fresh air, just because they want to get wasted or help with their kid’s show and tell or wander around heavily guarded transportation hubs talking about how the government is oppressive, because...what could possibly go wrong with this awesome plan?

And I wonder what Jesus would say about weapons being brought into his House of worship-in defiance of "Thou shalt not kill".

And if these Teathuglicans remember that even when Jesus was being arrested, he rebuked Simon Peter for cutting the ear off of the Roman soldier, healed it and told us to love our enemies as we love ourselves. But I suppose that they are only cherry picking out of the Bible-just as they do with the US Constitution. rolleyes

IMO these policies are grossly misguided

Otoh
I also think it is fine
If the people of Georgia choose to live this way

Maybe it will turn out well
Or maybe not so so good

Either way it provides a real world experimental benchmark as an alternative to purely hypothetical discussions about the impact of gun policy

I am looking forward to the day that a Georgia "militia" group decides that it won't abide by Georgia law and gets into an armed confrontation with Georgia State Troopers over, say, possession of firearms in the Capitol rotunda. I'm sure they'll get support from their bretheren in Nevada.

The malicians will pro'lly get into a tussle over some Georgian BLM lands first. wink Apparently, Texass is the next BLM brooding ground. The freedum to use women as human-shields is spreading. Hmm

What Georgia’s expansive new pro-gun law does
Niraj Chokshi
The Washington Post
April 23, 2014

Quote:
Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) signed into law Wednesday a pro-gun package that groups on both sides of the gun control debate describe as exceptional.

The National Rifle Association calls it ”the most comprehensive pro-gun bill in state history.” Americans for Responsible Solutions, the gun control group founded by shooting victim and former congresswoman Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.), calls it ”the most extreme gun bill in America.”

I'm expecting a much simpler trajectory.
Someone's going to probably toss an M-80 into some backwoods bar and the war will start.
