Don’t get upset, folks. It only stands to reason that a nation that only pays lip service to Christ and Christian values would need guns in schools, shopping malls, movie theaters and the like. And maybe, more extensive stand your ground laws will give bangers and drug cartels the necessary tools to legally eliminate their rivals and not tie up our courts with meaningless murder cases. Of course there are going to be those spoilsport genuine “Holy Ghost Prophets” who are going to be trying to shout folks down saying, “I told you so,” and quoting Proverbs 14:12 and Matthew 26:52. Then again, a proud nation will tell you how THEIR god, guns and guts made America great, but those pesky folks again would be quoting GOD as He spoke through his prophet in Proverbs 16:18. But, we suppose it won’t faze folks because after all, “Most of us just say that Bible stuff and following it only when it’s convenient for us to get our way!” Right?

The National Rifle Association, which lobbied for the bill, calls it “the most comprehensive pro-gun” bill in recent state history, and described the vote at the Capitol on Thursday as “a historic victory for the Second Amendment.”

Editorial: In Georgia, Carry a Gun, Just Not in the CapitolMARCH 25, 2014
More than a year after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut elicited a burst of gun-control legislation, the Georgia bill shows just how far the counterreaction has spread as lawmakers, mainly in Republican-controlled states in the South and West, pass laws allowing weapons in all corners of society while strengthening so-called Stand Your Ground laws.
