If you’re planning your family’s summer vacation, or your company’s next meeting, then you’ll want to avoid the area of the country that is conveniently labeled on maps as “GEORGIA”.

The Republican governor of Georgia has signed the “Guns Everywhere” law.

Gov. Nathan Deal signed legislation today that would vastly expand where Georgians can legally carry firearms, a proposal that has drawn heaps of praise and scorn from outside groups.

‘People who follow the rules can protect themselves and their families from people who don’t follow the rules,” said Deal, adding: “The Second Amendment should never be an afterthought. It should reside at the forefronts of our minds.’

House Bill 60, which passed in the final hours of this year’s legislative session, allows Georgians to legally carry firearms in a wide range of new places, including schools, bars, churches and government buildings. A recent analysis also said it could let felons use the state’s “stand your ground” rules to claim self-defense if they feel threatened. click here for full story at ajc.com

You’ll want to avoid even changing planes in Atlanta. The Guns Everywhere law now permits people to carry guns in airports. That’s right. You can’t take your gun onto a plane. (Yet.) But if you’re caught going through security at ATL with a gun in your bag or your waistband you’ll be stopped. And sent on your way. With your gun. That’s right. Because NRA.

 


The End (so far)
