As we know from the left's responses to recent events, our rights as gun owners are under attack almost more than ever before. So called "Red Flag" laws are an example, where your rights and your guns could be taken away without due process. And, with our state leaning more to the left, he chances of this happening in Georgia are becoming more and more possible. That's where GeorgiaCarry comes in. As the premiere voice for gun rights in Georgia, this group has led the fight against those who would take away our second amendment rights. Yes, the NRA says it fights for your rights, but we all know that most of this fight is done at the state level, and that's where GeorgiaCarry has done the most work of any group. For instance, you may be aware that at one time, it was illegal to carry a weapon in a "public gathering." This was passed in 1870, to prohibit groups of freed slaves, among others, from defending themselves during otherwise peaceful events, including those clearly protected under the First Amendment to the US Constitution. Areas where we could not carry were expanded over the years to include restaurants, bars, school zones, These laws endured over the years, until in 2008, with GeorgiaCarry's urging, the state legislature passed HB89, a sweeping change in where licensed citizens may carry. We can carry in public gatherings, and in restaurants, and on college campuses, now, because of the work of GeorgiaCarry. I post all this to ask - are you a member of GeorgiaCarry? If not, why not? Given the fights we know are coming, I am urging you all to join, for $20 per year, and help us stop the assault on our freedoms.
