Macon-Bibb officials talk of push back on new gun law

Macon-Bibb County Commissioner Al Tillman hopes someone will mount a legal challenge to block the July 1 implementation of Georgia’s new gun law.

But in the longer term, he wants a concerted effort to scale back the authorization for guns in various public places.

The concern is twofold, he said: expense and safety. In discussing hot-button issues, he’s often heard people talk about what they’d do “if I had my gun.”

“Well, now, folks will have their gun,” said Tillman, himself a gun owner who thinks the new law goes too far in removing oversight.

1. I rather suspect they'll do what our banned poster from Georgia does

 

Nothing...

2. Hey, it's not what they actually do and accomplish for gun control.

 

It's about how many penis and Ted Nugent references they can get in a single thread and what cartoons they can co-opt, instead of coming up with an actual POV in their own words.

The height of gun control success seems to be how many posts can you get hidden by a jury.

The aforementioned banned poster is annoying,

But the one that consistently uses Child Porn references as a metaphor, really creeps me out.

4. Yep, It seems like that

 

It would be nice if the OP would bother to comment at least occasionally.
