Ah, the delights of found treasure.
NRA: We want adults to be able to carry pistols at 18!
Also: can we get more laws like this? I’d like it in Texas, please.
RE New Georgia Law:
“Perhaps the most shocking section of the bill is the language allowing guns in bars. Somehow it’s illegal to drive after having one too many beers, but it’s totally fine to handle a firearm. As for churches, there’s some flexibility. The church gets to determine if parishioners are allowed to enter with firearms.”
This sounds very much like the law we have here in the great midwestern abyss Ohio, where it’s now legal to carry in establishments that serve alcohol, but not to drink while carrying. The antis here jumped on the “HERGABLERGABLERG! DRUNKS WITH GUNZ!” But all it really means is you can have dinner at Olive Garden, drink coke instead of wine, and not have to lock your gun in your car. I’m sure the Georgia bill specifically prohibits drinking and carrying. But you’d be surprised how many places have liquor licenses where you wouldn’t normally drink and would like to carry.
Journalistic integrity is dead…
Freekin DENNY’S. They serve wine at dinner. So you can’t have a Moons Over My Hammy at 7 AM.
Is this going to culminate in Mick throwing a huge bachelor party for Omar with the money he makes off of selling incredibly niche cartridges?
Because if so, might I recommend a tiger in that strip? Tigers make EVERYTHING better.
Nah, I’m thinking it’ll result in him making enough to buy the shop himself!
A cool million dollars?
does he have hitlers actual mustache back there, or is this place just HUGE?
My favorite LGS is tiny. 12’? ceilings, stuff stacked and racked and shelved ALL the way to the ceiling, if there are more than 3 customers in at a time, movement is difficult- and there is a basement instead of “that room”. If the proprietor knows you and cares to, he will pull ANYTHING you can think of from the little space time vortex down in that basement… Or the shipping container stock room out back.
Yes, there may be enough collectible stuff in the back room for at least the downpayment.
Is Neapolitan Double Ball going for a good 750K? ‘Cause I don’t predict there being enough oddball (harharhar) ammo to make THAT much.
As a Georgia resident I really don’t get what all the hoopla is over this new bill from the anti crowd. While there are some very nice changes to our carry laws it’s not what I’d call groundbreaking considering many other states also allow carry in these locations, some without a permit.
1.) Allows churches to opt in to weapons carry, reduces the penalty for carrying in a church that hasn’t opted in to a fine and (possible) loss of license for five years. Carry in church is illegal under current law.
2.) Allows military and former military to get a weapons carry license at 18 provided they’ve completed basic training and received an honorable discharge.
3.) Allows carry in Government buildings, excluding courthouses and the state capitol building, that do not have manned security at the entrances.
4.) Allows bar carry, and no mention of not drinking. Current law already allows carry in restaurants that serve alcohol as well as in bars with the owner/managers permission.
5.) Prohibits the governor and others from suspending 2nd amendment rights during a declared state of emergency.
6.) Clarifies the ability to carry in the non-secure area of airports. In other words, the parts before the security checkpoints. This has been allowed for a while now and the new bill simply cleans up the language.
7.) Adds current and former judges to the list of ‘only ones’ who can carry virtually anywhere without a permit.
8.) Requires a permit holder to have their permit on their person at all times when carrying.
> 5.) Prohibits the governor and others from suspending 2nd amendment rights during a declared state of emergency.
That one. That one right there. That is my favorite part of this bill.
I think the government buildings bit is my personal favorite. Though it’s a close call between that and bar carry, I’m not a drinker but do go to a lot of ‘bike nights’ on the motorcycle and those are heavily bar-centric events.
I agree, that’s a goodun.
Yeah, but let’s face it, any ‘state of emergency’ that would make a governor want to suspend the 2nd will just have them invoking ‘Emergency Powers’ and, rather than suspending the 2nd, they’d restrict public carrying to State-overseen activities/organizations that they’ll label ‘militia’ for purposes of making the restriction fit the text of the 2nd.
Because Conceal Carry (or at least carry) is part of the 2A, I think that would be problematic for a governor…
Nope. Nothing in the 2nd says discusses *how* the arms may be borne, nor *where*. You can’t walk onto a US Army base carrying, unless you’re an MP or other law-enforcement personnel on-duty, for example.
OK, I have to ask.
Are you my ex-wife’s dad? Your name leads me to ask.
Me? Not that I know of… and since I’m only 42, I’m not even sure I’m old enough to be.
Ah, no then. You just have the same name.
If you think it has to be groundbreaking for the anti’s to get worked up over, you don’t know anti’s lol.
Here in AZ,
They claimed the streets would flow red with blood when the law abiding could carry concealed with a permit. And crime went down.
They claimed the streets would flow red with blood when the law abiding could carry openly. And crime went down.
They claimed the streets would flow red with blood when the law abiding could carry concealed or unconcealed without a permit. And crime went down.
They claimed the streets would flow red with blood when the law abiding could carry in bars. And nothing happened.
So far every time they claim that the streets will flow with blood, they have been wrong. So when the heck are they going to admit it. NEVER would be my guess. They’re absolutely wrong, but don’t care.
“4.) Allows bar carry, and no mention of not drinking. Current law already allows carry in restaurants that serve alcohol as well as in bars with the owner/managers permission”
So it is an opt-out issue now, as opposed to the opt-in from the previous law?
Correct, bars will be opt out if the bill becomes law. Keep in mind there are relatively few ‘bars’ as defined under the ordinance, any establishment that receives more than 50% of its annual revenue from the sale of food is considered a restaurant and carry has been legal in those places for years.
However a layperson trying to establish if he’s entering a bar or restaurant is currently hit and miss, as individuals we have no easy way of telling, especially ‘on the fly’, exactly what type of establishment we’re going into. Then there’s the question of those restaurants that have separate bar areas, is carry legal in those areas or not under the current law.
In Texas the establishment must post a sign declaring more than 1/2 thier revenue is alcohol so we know immediately. Pretty simple.
CWI is illegal in most states where carry in restaurants is allowed. In Virginia, CUI isn’t defined, but it’s somewhere between one beer and DWI alcohol levels. If you open-carry in a restaurant (VA, technically, doesn’t have “bars”), you can drink in moderation. That’s assuming they’ll serve alcohol to someone who’s visibly wearing a gun. If you’re carrying concealed, consumption is verboten.
That ga law is an awful lot like texas already is. The only exception is TRUE bars. We already can carry in a restaurant that serves alcohol. I believe carrying in bars with a 0.00 BAC standard would be just fine.
I don’t get it re: the supreme court case.
We send 18 year olds to war with full auto m4s, m249s, grenades, and SMAWs but the idea of carrying a handgun at home is preposterous?
I know, guess I should stop using my common sense super power…
Even worse they get to stand watch carrying a 9mm handgun on their hips. Yet… can’t let them touch a handgun when they aren’t on watch… I also find it silly that a soldier isn’t allowed to acquire the same firearms they used in the service. I’m sorry, but if you volunteer to serve in the armed forces, there is absolutely NO reason you shouldn’t be able to defend your home with the same firearms that you would defend the country. Why shouldn’t a marine who was trusted with a Ma Deuce be able to get a new one? Heck even a M16. It’s not like the movies where you can just keep flooding a building with a hail of gunfire…
Then people would join the army just so they could buy a Full auto firearm like a M2 or M16.
Which is probably not a bad thing but those who can’t get in will be pissed.
I agree that this is stupid. True, not every 18 year old is mature. But not every 18 year old can join the military either.
I really wish the Supremes had not passed on this one. I want a large body of rulings supporting the second ammendment in case the court swings back to liberals.
I love how the same people who want separation of church and state want the state to order people not to take guns into church…regardless of if the church may feel otherwise.
In IN, we can carry in bars, and the silly no guns signs have no force of law.
I wish to see for the day when all of the American states will have carry laws similar to georgia and maybe even laxer.
