“Cagle has single-handedly fought pro-Second Amendment legislation in the State Senate over his tenure.” – Jessica Szilagyi, All On Georgia
Georgia – -(Ammoland.com)- For weeks, Casey Cagle has attacked conservative businessman Brian Kemp with television ads funded by the special interests.
Wanna know why? Because Cagle is hiding something.
On the campaign trail, Georgia's Lt. Governor Casey Cagle claims to be a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment but his record under the Gold Dome is nothing short of alarming.
Here's a quick summary:
- In 2013, SB188, better known as Campus Carry, was introduced for the second time but Cagle refused to allow the Senate a floor vote.
- In 2014, Cagle supported efforts to implement training requirements for gun owners during a Conference Committee on House Bill 65. Thankfully, he was unsuccessful.
- In 2016, Casey Cagle told a group of pastors that Campus Carry was not “responsible” and he “does not agree with this and other legislation being pushed upon our state.”
- In 2017, the legislature finally passed Campus Carry but Cagle allowed his College and Career Academies to remain on the exemption list. He said it was a “thoughtful compromise.”
That same year, Cagle also sent the “Georgia Constitutional Carry Act” (SB177) to die in committee and blocked three pro-gun amendments in the Senate in 2017.
When it comes to protecting, promoting, and advancing our 2nd Amendment Rights, Lt. Governor Casey Cagle is “content” with where we are. As governor, he won't fight for our values. He simply has “no appetite for that.”
