New Georgia Gun Bill Causes Anti-Gunners to Lose Their Minds
Georgia, like many states, is very close to passing a pro-gun bill that would recognize the right of college students to carry their guns concealed on campus, but it's the reaction of anti-gunners that is simply amazing. They are coming unglued.
HB 859, also called the "Campus Safety Act" would recognize the right of students to keep and bear arms for self-defense and the defense of others on campus. Those students who are 21 and have obtained a concealed carry permit would be able to carry their guns on campus. The strange thing is that they would not be able to carry them in dormitories, buildings used for sporting events, and fraternity and sorority houses.
Why legislation wants to draw lines where rights end is truly beyond me. As one who carries concealed, it is always a strange thing to try to remember where you can and cannot carry your weapon, and since it becomes a part of you, most of the time you actually end up carrying it in places that pretended legislation says you should not carry. That's just a side note.
So how are the anti-gunners responding to this? They are coming up with all sorts of scare tactics and claims, which are simply unfounded.
In February, prior to the House passing the bill and sending it to the Senate, Senator Nan Orrock (D-Atlanta) said that allowing concealed carry on campus for self-defense is an "abomination."
