    Poll On Whether to Permit Constitutional Carry In Georgia

    A poll run by the famous Kennesaw, Georgia folks. Hit it if you desire.
    As expected,'we' are ahead by a bunch.

    I hit it.

    When AZ was going thru this, it was going to be for AZ residents only. But somewhere along the process, they changed the wording and now Constitutional Carry is available to anyone 21 or over and not prohibited from owning a gun.

    That even includes you JD....lol

    Hopefully GA will follow suit.

    Sounds good!
    If total government control equals safety, why are prisons so dangerous?

    Glad I make the cut!

    My wife has relatives in Sierra Vista and Tucson. I always OC there and in New Mexico. We lost OC in Florida in 1987 and are still trying to get it back.

    What I really like about this proposal is GA will still issue CCW's for those that want to travel out of state.

    We have one of America's most pro-gun Governors,Rick Scott. We have overwhelming GOP majorities in the Florida House and Senate.

    Any yet we have yet to get OC back (lost it in 1987), much less Constitutional Carry. Also there is a laundry list of OL locations to wit:

    Places off-limits when carrying:
    1. any place of nuisance as defined in s. 823.05
    2. any police, sheriff, or highway patrol station
    3. any detention facility, prison, or jail; any courthouse
    4. any courtroom*
    5. any polling place
    6. any meeting of the governing body of a county, public school district, municipality, or special district
    7. any meeting of the Legislature or a committee thereof
    8. any school, college, or professional athletic event not related to firearms
    9. any school administration building
    10. any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption*
    11. any elementary or secondary school facility
    12. any area technical center
    13. any college or university facility*
    14. inside the passenger terminal and sterile area of any airport*
    15. any place where the carrying of firearms is prohibited by federal law

    So we have so far to go. So many Republicans in the big Urban centres of Miami-Ft.Lauderdale-Orlando-Tampa-St.Pete have no spine.
    I despair sometimes. Finally statewide preemption,in effect since 1987, has some teeth, now that politicians are facing stiff fines if they attempt local gun control.

    Lots more to do and eventually Dems will start to come back. The big wheel always keeps on turning.

    "12. any area technical center"

    What's that supposed to mean?
    "Gun control is not about public safety, crime reduction, or 'the children.' Gun control is about power. The people have it, and the government would rather they didn't." (An internet poster, not myself.)

    Since if falls between K-12 schools and universities, probably means technical schools. They must think of them more highly in FL, so they're promoted to centers.
    The only common sense gun regulations were written about 227 years ago.

    Ban gangs, not guns!
