Why Gov. Nathan Deal’s ridiculous gun law could turn Atlanta into the next ‘Chiraq’

Georgia’s Governor Nathan Deal proves what happens when an irrational being is allowed to be the head of an entire state.

On April 23, Deal passed a law that could make Georgia a land where guns will be plentiful and gun violence could become commonplace.

The pro-gun law, which passed the House and the Senate, allows licensed gun owners to carry a gun in bars, government buildings, churches, and on public school grounds.

The bill will also expand the controversial “Stand Your Ground” law which was debated during the Trayvon Martin murder in Florida. Now a person can kill using a banned firearm if they claim self-defense. Also, firearms dealers no longer need to maintain records of sales; fingerprinting requirements for licenses is no longer needed.

The insane ideology of most gun supporters is that having more guns will solve the problem of crime. In fact, it’s the opposite. For instance, the U.K. has strict gun laws which makes it highly unlikely that an individual will die from a violent crime. According to the Institute for Economics and Peace, guns are used in 1 in 13 homicides in the U.K. On the other hand, guns are used in 2 out of 3 homicides in the U.S.

If the U.S. adopted similar laws, 12,000 deaths would be prevented each year.

However, Deal and the gun advocates in Georgia have a shortsighted view of what this law could mean for the citizens of the state in the future.

Georgia cities could eventually become more deadly grounds than the violent landscape of Chicago. The city is now known as “Chiraq.”  During Easter weekend in Chicago, 45 people were shot and six were children.

But in the South, some backwards politicians believe that more guns is the answer to preventing crime.

    This is the most bullshit article if ever I’ve read one. Wouldn’t you like to “stand your ground” if someone was after you or your family? George Zimmerman ABUSED this law thus making it unattractive to others because of his acquittal. Do you think the people in Chicago have permits to carry on school grounds, church, etc? NO BECAUSE THEY BUY THEM OFF THE STREET. They are law-breaking criminals. Don’t be so quick to come to a conclusion about Deal’s decision. Truth be told, I am a Black woman that works late at night and attend a major university. If anything were to happen where a gunman approached my campus or my car while working, I would like the opportunity to defend my life. The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution has been so for hundreds of years. It’s not going anywhere, so just stop it.

    the problem is if you legalize guns so citizens can be safe sometime citizens are the most craziest fools .. who will kill someone just over a neighbor dispute ,the other problem is a lot of people will kill someone and claim self defense cause the person is in your house etc …. and the biggest problem is guns will end up in the hands of criminals even more because they know someone has a gun they will steal it expecially crackheads who are the reason for 20% of the guns being on the streets . if crimianla know that guns are sold freely like that they will have a feild day seeking out gun owners who dont lock up their gun …. or killing a person who tried to defend themself against the crimianlas not to mention all the kids who will die from playing with guns .. . people are very careless with guns they act like a gun is the same as a television set …. and just let it lay around not realizing the danger if in the wrong hands … recently a boy killed his sister in their home if the parents had locked the gun it would not have happen period
