Panic at Patheos: Guns! Guns on Campus!

Now that’s funny.

Gun Crazy Georgia Passes ‘One Book, One Gun Law’
Governor Andrew Canard of Georgia (R) officially “bettered” the campus carry rule for firearms for state institutions of higher learning by signing a law mandating students one gun for every book on his or her person. Students are now allowed to carry firearms on campuses in ten states. HB 280, commonly called the One Book, One Gun Law makes Georgia the most pro-gun state for campus carry. Critics of the law are calling the state Gun Crazy Georgia.

If that’s so “common,” how come it’s the first time I heard it?

Why these idiots are so panicky over firearms on campus in the hands of adults who have undergone background checks to confirm that they are not criminals, crazy, or otherwise prohibited persons beat the hell out of me. Do they think that they’ll suddenly be surrounded by weapons toters?

First, given the anti-gun, left-leaning tendencies of most US college student these days (see Berkeley), I doubt that many of them would bother to get a license and lawful weaponry. And the previous law banning weapons on campus didn’t seem to deter criminals.

Second — and the kicker — these clowns are already surrounded by people with firearms. Georgia has an estimated population of 10,214,860. Georgia also has over 700,000 people with concealed weapons licenses: 6.8% of the population. Roughly 7 in every hundred people.

Why is that only a problem on campus?

That 700,000+ is just the folks who bothered with a carry license. It doesn’t count all the folks with guns at home or at work. If you walk or drive through any neighborhood, I’ll guarantee you’re surrounded by enough guns to arm a military unit.

In rural areas, that’s enough guns to arm a large military unit. It generally isn’t a problem, other than some neighborhoods in cities.

All those guns everywhere… but it’s on campus where these sniveling snowflakes suddenly soil their undies.

Please don’t vote, part 4

6th District vote: Fulton seeks to extend polling hours; DeKalb and Cobb smooth
Exasperated voters arrived at their typical polling locations only to find them empty. The cause? They’re in the 11th, or 5th, or 4th districts, none of which are on the ballot Tuesday.

Note that this is after a press release was issued explaining that this is only for residents of the 6th district.

No word whether Dimwit candidate Ossoff was one of those turned away.

Please don’t vote, Part 3

The Georgia 6th district special election for Price’s vacant House seat just gets better and better and best:

Georgia Dem: No issue I don’t live in district
Democrat Jon Ossoff dismissed concerns Tuesday over the fact that he doesn’t live in the Georgia congressional district in which he’s running for a House seat.

As near as I can make out in Georgia law, to get on the ballot, one must file an affidavit stating that one lives in the district and is eligible to vote in the election in which he intends to run. I don’t see an exception for “grew up in this district”.

Did he lie on the affidavit? Was he improperly allowed on the ballot in knowing violation of the law? Am I missing something?

Shoot, with all this stupidity going on, “Equipment stolen days before special election; Sec. of State: ‘Unacceptable’” is barely worth a comment. Speculation that ranges from “dumbass stole it to pawn,” to “Dems meant to add (probably Bartow County) names to the registry,” to “someone wanted to close a polling station to claim disenfranchisement.” Who the fuck knows?

Why, bless their hearts*

There’s going to be a Black Lives Matter “inspired” protest in “downtown” Saint Marys, Georgia on Saturday, organized by a guy who doesn’t live there, inspired by stuff that didn’t happen there, and supposedly bringing folks from out of state. Yeah, population 17,000 Saint Marys. (And that link is the only online mention of this event I can find.)

We’re talking Georgia, which has at least 700,000 concealed carry licenses. That’s just the ones who want to carry and bothered to get licensed.

Better yet, that’s south Georgia, where you’d be hard-pressed to find a home without a firearm at the ready. Heck, the area supports an NFA dealer despite the small population.

Then there’s the planned route. Those folks won’t take kindly to taunts, slurs, violence, or Molotov cocktails in their residential neighborhoods.

This will be either the politest, calmest, most peaceful BLM protest ever, or the shortest.
