Georgia's new gun laws

"Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed into law today what supporters call a historic victory for the Second Amendment.

The new law, called the “Safe Carry Protection Act”, vastly expands where guns will be allowed in the state.

As of July 1st, licensed gun owners in Georgia and visitors from 28 other states will be allowed to bring a gun into a bar without restrictions and carry a firearm into some government buildings. Under the law, school districts will be able to decide whether they want some employees to carry a firearm, and religious leaders can decide whether to allow licensed gun owners to carry guns into their church, synagogue or mosque.

Deal said the following about the bill:"

The thing is, this new law probably isn't going to make any difference at all in Georgia. Just like banning all firearms wouldn't make any difference in Chicago, or requiring that everyone between the ages of birth and death carry an AK-47 at all times wouldn't make a difference in Texas.

Now if they passed a law requiring that all zygotes in Texas be armed at all times, that would probably cut down on both the abortion rate and the pregnancy rate. "You want me to shove WHAT up WHERE?!!?"
