Your Views: Lawmakers expose Georgians to more danger with gun law

POSTED: May 9, 2014 1:00 a.m.

The recent letters from Michael Parker, Claudia Simpson, Tom Crawford and others have aptly documented the absurdity and danger inherent in the newly gutted gun control law.

One area where more guns enable acts by young terrorists that has received scant attention is the source of guns used by students to annihilate their classmates, teachers and others. Most undoubtedly use their parents’ unsecured arms and some apparently steal their weapons. Never mind the sources; the more guns out there, the easier it is for youths to obtain them.

The NRA is no doubt loudly applauding passage of this bill and almost assuredly influenced its passage and has rewarded the efforts of our leaders. As Mr. Crawford pointed out, the legislature and Gov. Nathan Deal, in all their idiocy, made absolutely certain that they were exempt from these absurd relaxations of our gun control laws with all the expensive metal detectors, patrolling by state troopers and police, etc., in the Capitol.

While they are safe inside their secured dome retreat they, hopefully, go to bars, attend churches, go to schools and gun shows where they will be exposed to the results of their indiscretions just as the rest of us Georgians. Since we neglected to voice our opposition vociferously enough to prevent its approval we need to do so in order to get the law repealed.
