Incoming freshman state House Republican Charles Gregory (GA-Kennesaw) is the first lawmaker since the Newtown shootings to propose an expansion of gun rights in Georgia. Another lawmaker living in denial. This comes as Sen. Scott Brown became the first Republican to publicly back an assault weapons ban.
State Rep.-elect Charles Gregory, who campaigned heavily on the Second Amendment and limited government power, filed four gun bills this week at the Capitol that would sweep away any restrictions on carrying firearms in Georgia — including on college campuses and in churches.
House Bills 26, 27, 28 and 29 would declare that “evil resides in the heart of the individual, not in material objects,” and would also bar the governor from suspending gun sales during an emergency.
It’s a splashy public entrance for Gregory in advance of the next legislative session, which starts Jan. 14. The bills, however, have not been vetted by leadership and are likely to go nowhere on their own. A spokesman for House Speaker David Ralston, R-Blue Ridge, said it would be inappropriate to comment on the issue while victims were still being buried in Newtown, Conn. Source
I am sure if any of Charles Gregory’s young kids were murdered by someone with an assault rifle, God forbid, he would sing another tune. Absolutely hypocritical.
