Default ELLIJAY, Ga. — It's legal for licensed gun owners in Georgia to pack heat in bars, sc

Its a shame that you need another law to reaffirm something the constitution already grants you the right to do. I am sure the hoplophobes will piss bitch and moan about how it will be like the wild west(the west was not wild as people like to claim it is)

Ga. governor signs 'guns everywhere' into law

ELLIJAY, Ga. — It's legal for licensed gun owners in Georgia to pack heat in bars, schools, churches and some government buildings.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal, a Republican, on Wednesday signed the state's "Safe Carry Protection Act," which critics dubbed the "guns everywhere bill," in north Georgia, on the edge of the Chattahoochee National Forest and Cohutta Wilderness area.

"Our state has some of the best protections for gun owners in the United States. And today we strengthen those rights protected by our nation's most revered founding document," Deal said in signing the bill.

The new law, which goes into effect July 1, allows licensed gun owners in Georgia and visitors from 28 other states to bring a gun into a bar without restrictions and carry a firearm into some government buildings that don't have security measures. It also allows school districts to decide whether they want some employees to carry a firearm and religious leaders to decide whether to allow licensed gun owners to tote to their church, synagogue or mosque.

Since Jan. 1, 6 states have eased gun laws, 6 states have strengthened them and 4 states have both eased and strengthened firearm laws, according to Laura Cutilletta, senior staff attorney at the San Francisco-based Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

Folks should be able to protect themselves against the fruit loops that seem to like easy pickings at places others congregate.

I legally carry in bars here in Ohio as well. I'm not a drinker, but I sure enjoy bar food once in awhile. I avoid gun free businesses, because they are the liberal's way of creating slaughter zones for the whack jobs. Without mentally disturbed shooters, a$$ wipe politicians like Pelosi, Boxer, Reid Wasserman-$hitz and their ilk wouldn't have anything to use to try and disarm America so the government has total control. They abhor the FBI stats that violent crime has been going down as gun ownership increases.

Perfect timing for me. I haven't frequented bars in many a year.
I thought people were a bit looney back then, whoa if we'd only known how good we had it.

You can have my seat in a gun free business, and take your chances. As for me and mine, we don't leave home without our friends, Smith & Wesson. We don't go to theaters because all of them around here are gun free zones.

Just guessing but you're probably not a drunk either.

It really is not any of your business anyway, until you see a drunk shooting up a place. Then I can see you being justified in blowing his ass away.
