Constitutional Carry Passed for Georgia Politicians Because Their Life is More Valuable Than Yours

Kennesaw, Georgia --(Ammoland.com)- George Orwell’s Animal Farm reveals how politicians use the power of their office to grant special privileges to themselves.

“All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.”

A buddy of mine over in South Carolina sent me an email reminding me of one of Animal Farm’s lessons.

He heard that Georgia State Senators voted to give themselves “Constitutional Carry” last week — and left gun owners in Georgia to be processed and restricted like cattle just because you and I want to defend ourselves and our families.

That is wrong. The Republicans in the State Senate are wrong…and the gun lobbyists that concocted such a scheme should be ashamed for selling out Georgia gun owners.

If you believe that ALL Georgians deserve “Constitutional Carry,” please speak up.

Heavily-funded, anti-gun forces around the country, and establishment gun lobbies, have joined together to oppose such freedom for gun owners.

Soon after Republicans in the State Senate in Atlanta voted to give themselves “Constitutional Carry,” a member of Georgia Gun Owners contacted me with some disturbing information.

He indicated that his State Senator relayed to him that certain “deals” were being negotiated behind closed doors between the House and the Senate.

You could imagine how disgusted this member of Georgia Gun Owners was.

He asked: “Are they back to their old tricks in Atlanta? Are they playing politics with our rights again? The same old backroom deals?”

You and I know the answers to those questions. Politicians have one motivation: reelection.

Our elected officials need to know that the gun owners of Georgia are just as important as politicians.

Our safety and security should not be relegated to “second class” just because we haven’t won an election.

Afterall, you and I both know that most of us don’t have metal detectors and armed guards standing watch when we go to work everyday.

Don’t let today end without contacting your elected officials in Atlanta. Let them know that you support restoration of “Constitutional Carry” in Georgia.

Yours in liberty,

Patrick Parsons

      So has anybody from GGO been down at the gold dome lobbying on this issue? Just curious….

    2. Did anyone from Georgia Carry lobby against this bill, or did they stand by and let it pass?

      Nice way to bypass the question I asked. I didn’t mention Georgia Carry at all….

      What I am interested in however is an organization (Georgia Gun Owners) which has to my knowledge, not done anything about gun rights either pro or con in Georgia other than pontificate about how things “should” be and ask for money.

      Since you brought up Georgia Carry however, they have at least lobbied for, and succeeded in getting laws changed. Heck of an investment for $15 a year.

      Georgia Gun Owners has accomplished what, exactly?

      Anybody can set up a website and whine about what the law should be, could be, and ask for money. But so far I have seen and heard of Georgia Gun Owners doing exactly … well, zip, zero, nada, nothing concerning getting any meaningful CHANGE passed.

      So excuse me if I refrain from jumping on the bandwagon. I’ll stick with folks who have a track record of actually getting things done instead of asking me for money but showing me no visible results of what my donation would be supporting other than a slick website, a non-existent petition, and no lobbying effort.

      It would be great if in the future, you could place a link directly to the bill in question. I am researching and would have found this helpful. Thanks for all your hard work!

      TO: Georgia Gun Owners Org.

      Since many people dont believe you have taken any active action to lobby the legislators in Georgia, would you please email me copies of any letters you may have sent to them prior to the votes being cast.
      I would like to clear up this question.
      Thanks.
