NRA Celebrates Another Bloody Victory: ‘Unprecedented’ Georgia Bill Expanding Gun Rights to Be Signed Into Law

by: John Prager


Georgia just got  lot more dangerous! On Wednesday, Governor Nathan Deal signed legislation that the NRA’s lobbying tentacle described as “the most comprehensive pro-gun reform legislation introduced in recent state history.” In other words, it is a terrible idea.


The bill makes a number of changes to state law and greatly expands the locations in which licensed, “responsible gun owners” may carry their Second Amendment Sticks–including bars and certain government buildings–because we all know how well that works out in practice. Religious leaders are also permitted to decide if a person with a license to carry may bring a gun into a place of worship. Even school districts are permitted to allow some employees to carry firearms.


But it makes people safer, right?


The “Guns Everywhere Bill” removes security measures from weapons carrying licenses, as well, by eliminating the fingerprinting requirement. It also prohibits the state from maintaining  database of people who are licensed to carry, and repeals licensing requirements for firearms dealers.


The legislation also allows convicted felons to claim a “stand your ground” defense after using their boomsticks in “self-defense,” even though they are not allowed to carry or own guns to begin with. Feel safer yet, Georgia?


Colin Goddard, a survivor of the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting said he’s alarmed by the  provision allowing felons to claim SYG. “The stand your ground expansion is truly a new type of stand your ground as we know it,” Goddard said. “To expand it in such a way to remove all carrying or possession offenses is really unprecedented.”


It’s a great day for criminals in Georgia! Their lives just got a whole lot easier.
