DOWN GEORGIA WAY
“For anti-gun politicians, activists and their billionaire allies like Michael Bloomberg who want to use the actions of a madman to restrict our Second Amendment rights in Georgia, we have one simple message: Don’t even think about it,” says Patrick Parsons, executive director of Georgia Gun Owners, a nonprofit in Kennesaw, the same town where a gunman wounded six people at a FedEx facility last week.
“While our first thoughts are to send out prayers to the victims and their families, the all-too predictable calls for gun control from gun-grabbers is nothing less than despicable,” he says, taking particular issue with “Gun Free Zone” signs.
“No criminal, thug or madman is afraid of a plastic ‘Gun Free Zone’ sign. While we believe private property owners should be able to decide for themselves whether they allow firearms on their property, those who ban them publicly do so at the peril of their employees and their place of business,” Mr. Parsons says.
The group is now calling on the Georgia General Assembly to eliminate all “Gun Free Zones” in Georgia, and for private businesses with anti-gun policies to eliminate them “at once.”
