Georgia just further relaxed its gun laws, paving the way to carry firearms in all kinds of places that no reasonably same person would want them to be.
College campuses, churches, bars, even airports.
Fail your first hijacking attempt? Now it’s not illegal to keep on trying!
Thanks to Georgia’s new law, if you attempt to sneak a gun through security (or are such a blatantly irresponsible and dangerous gun owner that you “forgot” it was on you) in the WORLD’S BUSIEST AIRPORT, you can no longer be arrested for it.
At least that’s the law’s intent. I guess we’ll see how it plays out when federal TSA agents find their next gun. I don’t know why, but I have a feeling race and ethnicity might play into the response just a bit.
Combined with the state’s “stand your ground” law, it’s not an exaggeration to say we now have the Pro-Stalker Act of 2014.
College campuses are now no longer the moderately safe places for students with obsessive stalkers to go. At least before this, despite the high rates of assaults against college-age women, a potential attacker could at least be arrested for carrying a gun to her school.
Now? Now, if he’s nervous that she’ll harm him in her defense (and he’s white), he can legally shoot her. Thanks, NRA.
Have you ever been threatened with violence by a random drunk in a bar? Usually they can be restrained until their friends or bouncers calm them down. After all, they’re drunk.
But hey! In the fun new Georgia of today, he’ll probably just kill you. Oh well, can I finish your beer?
Good thing that churchgoers aren’t like that. Passions never flare over religion. And people never seek out a church member on Sunday morning over jealousy or revenge.
Except that they do. Often. It’s no wonder that churchgoers overwhelmingly opposed this bill.
It’s no wonder that most Georgians opposed it, too. What’s hard to fathom is why Georgia legislators thought it was even necessary, much less a good idea.
