@PN. Yes ma'am I read that story also. Having had two sons go thru the rec leagues I can tell you that I have personally observed overly zealous parents display very inappropriate behavior. Not just to the umpire but children on the other teams. Once two "daddies" of opposing teams came to blows revolving around a call made by the umpire. One dad said his son was safe at home plate and the other said 'hell no he wasn't' and from there it escalated to fisticuffs. Police were called. And the kids saw it all.
No telling what would have transpired had one or both of these 'men' had been packing heat.
Yes, Conservatives are married to the NRA. If one ever had any doubt about that fact, none should exist now that a heavily Republican Conservative Georgia legislature and guv-nah has provided the proof by signing into law that allows this outrage.
Let the body count begin.
Although I concur that guns, women, and whiskey are not the best combination this is not going to be as bad as anti-gun advocates project. Good or bad the guns were still being carried to the additional places allowed to include church. With possibly the exception of the bars there will not be a significant increase of gun "use" due to this law. The irony is that legal gun owners willingly accept that there will be a mandatory background check every five years. This is coupled with the check with the national database every time a firearm is purchased. Like it or not gun violence is statistically proven to be committed by unlawful unregistered weapons a majority of the time. There is the less than half of a percent that is perpetrated by legal owners. Of that, 98.5% is considered "justified" Much ado about something that will not live up to the hype.
As I said in an earlier blog, I'll wait five years and see how it all turns out. Personally, I think the law is a bad idea - but then that's how I feel about ObamaCare as well (i.e., the "democratic party dream").
