Georgia: Constitutional Carry Legislation

Georgia Governor Brain Kemp will announce his support for a Constitutional carry Bill in Georgia. Currently a Weapons License is required to carry a handgun. Of course, our Friends at Moms Demand Action are concerned that dropping the licensing requirement will allow criminals to carry. I wonder if she has watched the news recently.

Shall we go ahead and screech "BLOOD IN THE STREETS" now? Or do we have to wait for MDA to start the chant?

I'm finding this interesting. Seems that in the last few years more states are going and have gone to constitutional carry gun laws. I know Arizona did so a couple of years back but when my CCW permit expired I decided to renew anyway. I travel to several states that have constitutional carry but apparently reserve that right to state residents only. That means if I want to carry, I'd best have a permit from my home state. At least the states I do go to honor my permit.
It might be interesting to see a list of which states with constitutional carry laws allow that for anyone of state residents only?

They're welcome to provide data for when that has EVER happened. Spoiler: it hasn't. The experiment has already been a success in several other states.

It's nice to see Kemp supporting this. It was a campaign promise of his, and there's been some groundwork laid for it over the last decade.

I'm in the Twin Cities, Minnesota and when our legislature was discussing becoming a 'shall issue' CCW state the anti-gun legislators donned a huge blue explosive ordinance vest with the high collar and everything to speak against the bill, because, you know, bullets were going to be flying everywhere if this legislation passed.

Well the legislation passed. This was years ago.

Today we don't exactly have 'blood running in the streets' but we DO have a LOT of shootings and record and near record homicide rates.

But guess what? It's not the CCW folk that are doing the shooting and killing.

I simply cannot fathom how intelligent people believe relaxing laws for law-abiding citizens will suddenly result in a spike in criminal activity.

Intelligent people on both sides know it is not true, but sadly, they both rely on the "useful idiots".
