Don't see any need to have weapons (guns) around
public transportion or restaurants. I have gun permit and own guns and I am against much of the gun control issues, but this is not the wild west any more and really can't understand allowing guns to be around public transportation and such!
Why would anyone (even with carry permit) want to have or need to have a gun around public places like that. Don't make much sense to me.

Apparently you now nothing of your history with that mindless "Wild West" comment. Tell me how many schoolshootings occred in the "Wild West"? How many Market(Mall) shootings? Were home invasions and "Ride By" shootings common place then? Obviously you take no time to reason out a opinion and just Knee Jerk spew your leftist pap at the first chance available.

So Georgia joined the 34 other Redneck States that have similar laws. Guess that make Rednecks a majority and you a gerbil packing minority

Ga has 58% of its high school kids that graduate, now these days we all know that it’s tough to get a near decent job with a high school diploma. Now take the 42% with no high school diploma, half will be girls who will all have at least one child out of wedlock and be living on welfare with free housing, free food and free medical. The boy friends that live with the mothers illegally in the public housing have no income of their own so must do some thing to earn a living and that my friends is called crime. Now who has the money that these fine young bucks will need, why its’ you Mr. Anti Gun and guess where they will take the money from you, outside restaurants and in parks and they will have guns. You had better pack heat and know how to use it, because with the way this country is going you will be the easy target, remember as in all things the youngsters will take the path of least resistance.

I agree, those sub-class scum and uneducated filth are nothing more than peices of excrement that are not worth the air they breath, They had a chance at school but did not take it, if they are so stupid so as not to realsie how important school was then they need removed.

They breed more illiterate bound, junkie, state dependants. wake up tax payers, we are one gas riot away from anarchy in this country

I would like to agree that guns don't kill people, people kill people, but if that were true, the US wouldn't have the highest death rate by gun in the WORLD.

That was such an intellectual comment that added to the debate at hand, I just dont know HOW this site would operate without such mind stimulating comments based in fact as yours!

Do you feel safe riding on MARTA at night, alone?

How do you get from your vehicle to a restaurant without walking across a parking lot? Will it be well lit? Will there be any security between the two? Maybe you feel safe. Good for you. But why would you deny me the right to protect myself in those situations?

Do you have any proof of that statement. Otherwise it is merely an opinion, just like parts of the anatomy, everyone has one, some are more relevant than others.

your the kind of person that worries me. Your reasoning makes no sense. You try to come a cross as an intellectual, whereas in reality your just an empty headed redneck bantering on foolishness. You, for sure, dont need to own any firearms.

If the state deems you competent to carry a concealed weapon and you are an honest person, all of the little technicalities keep you from carrying.
If you go from point a to B and have to use public transportation, then what is the use of the permit?

The presumption that there are uneducated and criminally inclined sub-cultures in America is well documented, however, race has absoluetly nothing to do with this conversation. There are only two basic types of people in this world, those who would stick a knife in your back for $20 and those would not.
