Now what REALLY buffaloes me is why any man who used to be in law enforcement would want to make it possible for every Tom, Dick, Desmond, Naomi, Diamond, and Ruby to be packing a weapon in concealed carry. But our Very Own State Senator did exactly that and he did it in spite of the current President of Police Officers Association telling him that they were against it. What the….? And he was a Deputy for Muscogee County for how many years??
The logic here just is backwards. The cops didn’t want it. The public didn’t want it.
But Brainless Kemp did and the GOP did. So that’s what we got.
Now law enforcement in Georgia has to assume that they are in danger from EVERYBODY they see. From toddlers to grannies, Blacks, Whites, Latinos, AA, Native Americans, Doctors, lawyers, nurses, morticians, grocers, people walking their dogs, just shopping for groceries-everybody is a threat to a cop now. That’s just wrong. People are going to get killed because these cops are scared and they have every right to be. Even if they see a ‘good guy’ with a gun, there’s not going to be a flashing arrow over their head saying “Good Guy here”. They see a gun, they shoot to kill and ask questions later.
This law is dangerous in the extreme. Our Senator needs to be held accountable for his part in leaving Georgians in such a dangerous position. Shame on him. He knows better.
I’m running for the State Senate District 29 and I promise that I will look out for Georgians to keep such dangers from your lives. You need us to help keep you safe, not expose you to deadly dangers. Vote for me on Nov. 8. And donate right now to my campaign before you go. Just click on the brown button to do that. You can make it monthly donation which would really be a tremendous help. I believe in grassroots support and you help make it possible. Do it now while you are thinking about it.
