Georgia learns from Florida…

19 Feb

Gee, I feel safer all ready.

Georgia’s House of Representatives voted Tuesday to let licensed gun owners carry their weapons in more places, sending the bill to the Senate where changes are likely.

Licensed gun owners would be allowed to carry guns into churches, bars and nonsecure government buildings under legislation approved in the state House on Tuesday. House Bill 875, sponsored by Rep. Rick Jasperse, R-Jasper, passed 119-56, largely along party lines. It now goes to the Senate.

I’ve always said that guns and alcohol are the chocolate and peanut butter of violent death.

Notice that back in the carefree 1980s, you could bump into a stranger on the street and dip your chocolate into her peanut butter without being shot.

I’m not religious, but a recent documentary makes a compelling case for the spiritual value of arming yourself before attending church.

Also, if it ever snows more than half an inch again, Georgia residents can — if they feel reasonably in fear of their lives — kill the snow in self defense.

    Bars? Bars? In New Jersey even police officers can’t carry guns into bars, unless they are on duty and not drinking. And what about a church’s constitutional right to provide sanctuary? What if they want to provide sanctuary from violence? Fuckin’ A.
