First Sonny made the flag people mad. Now this. I think everyone should know who killed our chance for a little relief this year and remember on election day. Quoted from the "Political Insider" in the AJC Check your piece at the door, partner. It doesn't look like the housewives are that desperate Published on: 02/21/05 Both sides are telling us that Gov. Sonny Perdue has slapped a lid on the Legislature's efforts to ease restrictions on concealed weapons, so that hidden sidearms can be carried â€” by permitted owners â€” into many restaurants and some bars. No explanation was given, but we can hazard a guess. With the exception of a very few bills intended for the Republican base, this session's low-volume agenda has been devoted to: A) reinforcing GOP ties with a business community that will be funding the '06 contests; or B) convincing suburban women â€” now a key swing vote in Georgia â€” that they need not fear the excesses of GOP rule. Apparently, the concealed weapon issue didn't go over well with either "A" or "B." Restaurateurs had nightmares over liability issues that come when 9mm semi-automatics mix with surly waiters and dirty spoons. And women somehow found no comfort in the possibility that the gentleman in the next booth at Applebee's could offer cover fire in a pinch. Maybe next year.
