    Knives are arms protected by the Second Amendment. In American history, knives have been banned as often, perhaps more so, than firearms have.The concealed carry of knives have been banned, along with firearms. The possession and carry of knives have been regularily banned and forbidden by the states. In Montana, Constitutional carry for knives was achieved on 21 April, 2017.Montana law treated knives with a blade of more than 4 inches the same as firearms in their concealed carry statute. It is legal to carry concealed weapons in most of Montana, without a permit, except inside city limits.  The...

    Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed the Georgia Campus Carry legislation, HB 280, on Thursday this week, May 4th, 2017.May 4th was the last day that Governor Deal had to sign or veto the bill. The NRA Annual Meeting was in Atlanta this year. Perhaps the stellar performance of NRA Meeting attendees helped Governor Deal in his decision. Crime tends to drop when 80,000 NRA members show up in town. The meeting was widely publicized.From the office of Governor Deal at Georgia.gov: Gov. Nathan Deal today signed HB 280, which permits weapons carry license holders to carry firearms in specific...

    I drove to the NRA Meeting in Atlanta yesterday, the 26th of April, 2017.  I had been visiting family in Dallas, Texas, so it was only 800 miles. On the way, I reflected on the last time I was in Atlanta for more than a flight change. It was over 40 years ago, when I was in the Army. What happened then was not important. But what has happened in the last 40 years has been phenomenal for Second Amendment Supporters. In 1974, the Gun Control Act of 1968 was only six years old. It had not been improved...
  • REPORT: Democrat Darling in Georgia House Special Election Runs Company That Funds Human Smuggling

    Democrat Congressional Candidate and Georgia darling, Jon Ossoff paid human smugglers operating across Europe approximately $2,000. Everyday we learn more and more about this young Democrat who was foisted onto Georgians by outside money. We also just reported that Ossoff didn’t vote in the 2012 election. He claims he couldn’t vote because he was abroad. Yeah ok, makes sense! Someone who was involved in human smuggling shouldn’t be able to run for office, but since he’s a Democrat, this will probably get swept under the rug.

That bill was vetoed by Governor Deal.HB 292 has a couple of differences. Church carry is not addressed in the 2017 bill, and knife reform has been added as an amendment. Here are some of the features of HB 292, from georgiacarry.org: Will allow for a person moving into GA who has a valid firearms license or permit to carry on that permit for 90 days or upon person attaining a GWL;Allow for...

    Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed pushed back Saturday on President-elect Donald Trump’s assessment of civil rights leader and U.S. Rep. John Lewis’ district. In a series of tweets, Reed said: “John Lewis is an American hero & a national treasure. Period. Full stop. “That PEOTUS Trump would attack Congressman Lewis on MLK Day weekend for “all talk…no action” when he bled to actually “Make America Great” is why far less than half the country supports him at the dawn of his presidency.” Trump said Lewis’s district was “in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested)” in an early...

    There is something unhealthy about a city administration that lists destroying valuable property as one of its highest priorities. That is the case with Savannah, Georgia. According to WTOC, Savannah, Georgia has a great many important issues on their plate. After considerable effort, they whittled down their list to their six highest priorities. Bold added.  From wtoc.com: The city has had a lot of issues, but city council members managed to narrow them down to a list of just six items. This list includes addressing the on-going blight issues, dramatic increases to commercial property taxes, improving transparency with the...

    AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- Augusta's famous Haunted Pillar on the corner of Broad Street and Fifth Street has a legend for being cursed. But the site is much less eerie after a car crash brings the 10-foot tower crumbling down Sunday morning. The popular tourist attraction, known for its urban legend and long history near Downtown Augusta, is actually being credited for possibly saving a life. "It didn't really kick in until I talked to the officer," says an awestruck Cory Tyler. "After that, I realized it was the Haunted Pillar." A haunting piece of Augusta history is not looking...

A correspondent says that the site raised $130 before it was closed.  At the Sheriff Department site, Sheriff Ted Jackson states his support for the...
