New Georgia Gun Law Goes Well Beyond The Second Amendment

On Wednesday, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed into law an NRA-approved gun bill that allows residents with concealed carry permits to take their savage hardware into government buildings, bars, churches, even school zones.

Georgia law allows guns in some schools, bars, churches – CNN.com — “The Second Amendment should never be an afterthought. It should be at the forefront of our minds,” Deal said while touting his NRA endorsement for governor and “A” rating during his 17 years in Congress.

The governor said the law “will protect the constitutional rights of Georgians who have gone through a background check to legally obtain a Georgia Weapons Carry License.”

So this is entirely a Second Amendment issue, right? Well that’s what we are led to believe when people like Governor Deal say the new law “will protect the constitutional rights of Georgians.” But wait, if the Second Amendment already guarantees these rights, as any gun-toting, card-carrying NRA member will tell you, then why the need for a new law? I’ll tell you why, because the Second Amendment does not specify that you can carry a concealed weapon anywhere you please. These assholes know it, so that’s why they passed this law. But they need the average American to believe the law simply reaffirms rights already protected by the Second Amendment. This law does no such thing.
