Georgia Governor Nathan Deal, today signed into law an unprecedented expansion of gun carry rights for persons with concealed carry permits.
The new law gives licensed gun owners the right to carry concealed into bars and many other areas previously banned by old law. Churches are also on the list of places permit holders can bring their guns, if allowed by the individual church.
The bill is set to take effect on July 1, 2014. The bill also permits hunters to use silencers and clears the way for schools to allow staff members to carry weapons on campus.
“This law gives added protections to those who have played by the rules – and who can protect themselves and others from those who don’t play by the rules,” Deal said in a statement.
Of course the anti-Second Amendment crowd along with the gun control lobby have their panties in a wad over this. Twitter lit up with the expected uneducated and asinine comments today after the news broke. Here are just a couple examples:
After speaking with a couple of Griffin cops today they both said they support the new gun bill saying that law abiding citizens with proper training and licenses would make criminals think twice before walking into a business knowing that there would be a high likelihood of someone being armed.
Gun control folks like to bring up all the school shootings. I bet you had no idea that at least three shootings in high schools were stopped by civilians with guns. Not law enforcement but armed citizens. The media is hesitant to report these actions by legally armed citizens because it doesn’t help their gun control agendas. One of the incidents involved a high school vice-principal learned there was a student in the school hallways with a gun. The principal ran to his car which was parked off campus. He got his gun from the car and ran back to the school where he confronted the armed student. Threat stopped. Lives saved.
The gun control crowd cannot defend facts about gun control. Just this past Easter weekend in Chicago, 45 people were shot including five children on a playground after Easter services ended. Chicago has the strongest gun control laws in the United States.
It’s a fact, stricter gun control means more violent crime and death. This is a fact that cannot be disputed.
What about those 20 defenseless Sandy Hook Elementary School children that were piled in a classroom and massacred by a loan teenager? The 6 adults that were also shot dead? How many of those little kids and adults would be alive today had just one teacher had the legal right to have a gun in their possession in the classroom? Perhaps all would be alive today.
Today the state of Georgia has put criminals on notice. Violent armed criminals are now more likely to be confronted by a legally armed citizen in a store, restaurant, church or even at the Hartsfield Atlanta International airport if they attempt to use a weapon during the commission of a crime.
Licensed gun owners are the most law abiding citizens in our nation. This is another fact that you can research for yourself.
My wife and I both have concealed carry permits and I applaud Governor Nathan Deal for supporting our Second Amended rights and allowing us to further protect ourselves, family and loved ones with our legally concealed guns. -JRoycroft

Jason Carter is the grandson of former President Jimmy Carter, the guy, who along with his family, embarrassed the state of Georgia. Jimmy Carter, the man who never met a dictator he didn’t like.
Now we have another Carter boy that wants a crack at the Governors mansion here in Georgia. God help us if that should happen.
I personally couldn’t care less about the license plate. Some folks around here think it’s offensive and raaaaacist. That would be the same people that voted for a Fascist to be their dear Ruler.
I believe the citizens of Georgia should be more concerned about the possibility of having an Obama plantation worker sitting in our governors mansion than whether we can have a redneck license plate on our 4×4′s. -JRoycroft

When you begin seeing gang graffiti in your community it’s your responsibility as a concerned citizen to report it and get rid of it as soon as possible. Especially considering the number of shootings we’ve all heard of lately.
I took a short drive around my city of Newnan yesterday in search of gang related activity. I found the first indications at the entrance to one of the welfare housing projects off of MLK Jr Dr.
This photo shows dated graffiti on a bridge under pass which looks like it could be several months or years old. Why this has remained here is beyond my understanding. I can identify at least one known gang on this wall. Why do the officials in my city continue to ignore the gang activity here? Why do they let this sort of garbage remain when they should be proactive in removing it as soon as it appears?
If the city officials, NAACP, church leaders and citizens here are really serious about attacking the culture of violence in Newnan, might I suggest they take some initiative and begin cleaning up this sort of graffiti as soon as it gets painted.
This is not art. This is an indication of a clear and present danger to our city, and our officials need to become educated to the cold hard truth of what is going on after dark. I know our law enforcement officials are very active investigating these things but I do not understand why the rest of the Newnan officials allow this graffiti to exist for so long. My best guess, and I’m right, is that because it isn’t in their immediate view or on their side of town then whats the problem? Right? The problem is that you are allowing these thugs to broadcast their existence and claim turf. You are allowing free advertising of criminal activity and coded gang messages.
Here is some great advice from Robert Walkers website, “Gangs Or Us”:
Read – Read the graffiti to determine the gang(s) involved. If you are unable to interpret what is observed, find someone who can. Frequently, a great deal of intelligence can be gathered, such as the nicknames or monikers of gang members, warnings, threats to other gangs, availability of drugs, pending gang wars, and more.
Report -Educators, parents and other concerned citizens should report found graffiti to the appropriate law enforcement agency. Law enforcement or corrections personnel should report the existence of graffiti to the departments gang intelligence unit.
Record – Use a still or video camera to record the graffiti for possible later use. If graffiti continues to appear after removal, the photographic record may serve as a history of the efforts made to combat the problem.
Remove – Remove ALL graffiti as soon as possible after it is discovered. When removing graffiti, paint the entire wall, post, sign, etc. on which the graffiti is found. Studies have shown that “spot” painting to blot out the graffiti is not as effective for the permanent discouragement of graffiti as is covering the entire subject area.
Listen up. Nothing good comes out of welfare housing when you pack generations of moochers together. This is exactly what breeds the culture of predatory violence in cities across America. Believe it or not, there are probably a few very good people living there that just don’t have the ability or motivation to leave. They may not even understand how to leave or even become a part of normal society. It just takes one person, an honest to God role model to lift the spirits of another and possibly open their eyes that there is a future outside those red brick walls.
Just an ounce of light shed into their depressing lives is all it takes to get them thinking positively about their futures. They have been raised into that life and know nothing else. But of course most folks really don’t give a damn. Hell, it’s just a bunch of welfare people so why should I care what goes on there? I have a job, a house, a family, a gym membership and a pass to the Newnan Country Club so don’t bother me with the crap from the moocher side of town. It’s not my problem!
Hey guess what people, it is your problem, and you need to care about those folks living inside those red brick walls because what goes on there is a disease that migrates out and eventually makes a beautiful city like Newnan turn into another Atlanta or Detroit. It all starts with officials and citizens ignoring the signs painted right under their noses. And when you allow the thugs in the hood to advertise their violent presence on public property it makes you an accessory to the problem.
Hey, I’m just a nobody guy with a blog, writing about stuff that bothers me or affects my life. So really, nobody in Newnan cares much about my politically incorrect opinions. I live here now, and I do care about whats happening all around me. I care about my new home and the good folks that live here. I even care about the hand full of good people that somehow found themselves caught up living in a generation of moochers.
There’s a lot of truth in the saying that you become your environment. Welfare housing is a perfect example.
Trust me on this. I spent 5 long years working the the shift from hell inside some of Atlanta’s most dangerous housing projects. Grady Homes, Hollywood Court, Bankhead Court and Bowen Homes. You folks from Atlanta know what I’m talking about. My hours were from 6:00 pm till 3:00 am and I saw more of what goes on inside those depressing red brick buildings than you could ever imagine. You have no idea how bad those places can be. It’s much worse than you think.
These places were so dangerous we could only walk in teams of 4 men when we left our vacant apartment. When we were not out on a patrol we were hunkered down inside one of the vacant apartments that we used for detaining criminals until the Atlanta Police could haul them away for us. The police didn’t even patrol inside these places. It was left entirely up to our paramilitary enforcement unit.
I saw little children selling crack on street corners at 2:00 am for the thug dealers hiding inside the apartments. I saw little toddlers wandering around in the middle of the night with with dirty diapers or none at all with no parent giving a damn where they were. I’ve been the first responder to the senseless murder of a young 19 year old man who we found slumped inside his vehicle, foam coming from his dead lips after being shot, while children played in the parking lot next to his lifeless body in broad daylight. Residents wandering around laughing like it was nothing. Too many times I’ve entered an apartment where flies filled the windows and the unforgettable stench of a lifeless body lay inside rotting on the floor.
I’ve fought hand to hand with young thug dealers after chasing them down from selling their poison to outsiders, usually young white adults driving by looking for a quick score.
There was one time on a rainy night in the Hollywood Court apartments when we heard the sounds of a car crashing through the iron gate that circled the housing area. When we responded on foot to the scene of the crash we found the car thieves climbing out and running away. Almost instantaneously people came from inside their apartments and began stealing everything they could from inside the vehicle. I remember wondering just where the hell did all those people come from. It was 3:00 in the morning! Those people were in a frenzy around that car like piranha on a fresh peace of meat.
This is the mentality of the culture of violence I keep referring to. They do not care about anyone or anything but themselves. They are a deadly bunch of predators that lay in wait for an opportunity rob, steal and murder. When you have that many of them together they can quickly develop a mob mentality. This is how riots start. They feed off one another.
So you good folks here in Newnan need to be proactive in identifying the early stages of a developing violent culture. Especially those that live near the areas where low income housing and rental communities are located. Like it or not, you need to face reality and know that these places are breeding grounds for criminal activity. They may not hold a candle to what went on in Atlanta, but the criminal element still exists inside every one of those government housing projects.
Clean up that disgusting graffiti. What do you think goes through a persons mind when they drive down MLK and happen to look over and see gang graffiti at the entrance to an apartment complex? Newnan is better than that. -JRoycroft
