The legislation will allow guns in places of worship, sporting events, bars, and yes, schools. Clearly they’ve learned nothing since Newtown, or since any of the approximately 50 school shootings—more than three a month—in the last 17 months. Of course those attacks happened because those schools were “gun-free zones.” We can’t go blaming the easy access to guns for any yahoo with a Ted Cruz tattoo, which is clearly why we’re seeing the same epidemic of school shootings in, say, the Netherlands or Australia.
This bucket of warm spit is a perfect example of the “logic” of leftist gun grabbers. Georgia is crazy for allowing law abiding citizens to carry legally wherever they would like to do so, as is provided for in the Second Amendment to the US Constitution.
Why do leftists consider this idea crazy? Well, because banning guns in certain places prevents them from being used for criminal purposes. Like at Newtown, where stolen guns were not used illegally to commit mass murder in a location where gun possession was specifically banned. Oh, wait….
Or maybe like in Colorado, where twice crazies committed mass murders with firearms in places where firearms were banned.
Or, as sane people like to call gun-free zones: “Free fire zones.”
