Georgia – -(Ammoland.com)- Within minutes of news breaking on a morning of a shooting on Tuesday April 29, 2014, at a FedEx facility in Kennesaw, Georgia, anti-gunners were already banging the drums for gun control.
While our first thoughts here at Georgia Gun Owners 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.
“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.
Any politician in this state who chooses to push gun control legislatively will be met with fierce political resistance — and exposed publicly — by the tens of thousands of members and supporters of Georgia Gun Owners around the state,” said Patrick Parsons, Georgia Gun Owners Executive Director
While details continue to emerge, one picture should remain seared in the minds of those in the media and across the country — the “Gun Free Zone” signs posted right on the front of the FedEx building.
“No criminal, thug or madman is afraid of a plastic ‘Gun Free Zone' sign. No posted sign or law will stop someone from doing harm to another.
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.
We call 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. How many more have to be injured or die before we let law-abiding Georgians have the right to defend themselves at all times?” said Parsons.
