    Unlike most states, Georgia requires a permit to carry an unconcealed handgun. But now Georgia State Representative Tim Bearden (R – Carroll and Douglas Counties) seeks to change that by introducing HB 615. . . . Arguably then Representative Bearden’s HB 615 is just legislating the Constitutional mandate that free men and women have the right to open carry without any permit. Not only is that already the law in most states, that’s what the North Carolina Supreme Court said in State v. Kerner, 181 N.C. 574 (1921) (striking down state statute requiring permit to open carry handgun as unconstitutional violation of state constitution’s right to bear arms provision).

    You know, with all the Obama stuff going on, I think he has opened the eyes of many through his illogical statements and actions(voting record).

    I almost want to say having Obama as president has caused much good. The same type of good which comes from wars battling evil dictators and communists during wars.
    Gays are prominent members of firearm rights, we do more via the courts, don't like it? Leave.
    Religious bigots against same sex marriage are not different than white supremacists.
    I expel anti-gay people off my teams. Tolerance is key to team cohesion and team building.
