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."Outside groups" are calling this the "Guns Everywhere" bill. Neal Boortz had a good line on the radio, saying that this bill "lets a permitted citizen carry a concealed firearm anywhere a non-permitted thug or gang banger carries a concealed firearm today."
“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.”
I must confess that I didn't think that Hiz Honor would sign the bill. So the Governor thinks his reelection chances are improved by throwing Moms Demand Action under the bus. This is an interesting data point into what the Establishment thinks that 2014 is shaping up to be.
Markadelphia hardest hit.
Interestingly, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker seems not to fear the Republican voters:
Because we can trust that this wouldn't ever be politicized to seize people's guns.Wisconsin’s governor Scott Walker passed three new laws, addressing domestic violence. The laws include a mandate that police track the incidents where no arrests are made when dealing with a domestic-disturbance call.The laws also make it very clear that there will be a process for seizing an “abuser’s” guns.
“This is one more big step toward trying to make sure that for every gun you take away, it’s that much better for (a victim, their) family and friends and loved ones who care about that person,” Walker said.
