Georgia lawmakers passed new gun legislation this week. It will be made law when and if the governor signs the bill. There has been a lot of debate over whether it is Constitutional or not. Conservatives and liberals alike have found things they don’t like about the bill.
Some people call it the “guns anywhere bill” but that is not what it does exactly. It sets up parameters where one can carry firearms into nightclubs, bars, classrooms, unsecure government buildings, airports and some churches. Churches have to decide to “opt –in” before guns will be allowed on their premises. It allows guns to be carried into TSA checkpoints provided the owner has a valid carry permit without the owner receiving any penalty.
The bill also legalized silencers but only for hunting purposes but it kept the ban on carrying guns on college campuses.
I want to know, what do you think of this new law? Does this infringe on our Constitutional right to bear arms? Do our property rights have precedence over the right to bear arms? Do you think the TSA will go along with the Georgia law? Did the law go too far or did it not go far enough? How do you feel about legalizing silencers? How do you feel about making it legal for drunks to carry while drunk? Should churches be able to refuse carries on their property? Do you have a problem with guns in classrooms? Do have any other problems or comments about this law?
