A new conceal/carry law went into effect today in Georgia...
The new state law, which Bearden(R-Villa Rica) sponsored, permits licensed gun owners to carry concealed firearms in parks, on public transportation and in restaurants that serve liquor.
I predict, contrary to bed-wetting, liberal hysterics about guns, violent crime will plummet as as result of this legislation. When the criminals don't know who has a gun and who doesn't, they tend to select carefully their victims. Good for Georgia.
Aside: this guy Bearden was planning on taking his weapon to the Atlanta airport to pick up a relative in order to test the TSA's ban on firearms in airports. Wisely, TSA said he'd be arrested the second he steps foot on airport property. Carrying a gun around your neighborhood is one thing but where security is provided, they should have the right to ban them if there is a compelling reason to do so...psychiatric facilities, airports, and police stations are three places that come to mind.
