    In Georgia, no civil rights are lost as a result of a MCDV conviction (Georgia following the majority of states in believing that misdemeanors should not result in loss of civil rights)​


    Huh? :???:

    Maybe the writer doesn't consider 2A rights as civil rights?

    Maybe since there is a federal law (in 18 U.S.C. 922) against domestic violence offenders having possession of any guns or ammunition, a state law in O.C.G.A. title 16 (crimes) duplicating this is unnecessary.

    The NRA is hard at work negotiating our rights away.

    Trump will also gladly sign away any gun rights that he can.

    I heard Georgia Carry. Org's president, Jerry Henry, on news-talk radio 95.5 this morning, saying how GCO opposes these "red flag" laws. He didn't flatly say that never could such a law be crafted in a way that would pass constitutional muster but from his tone I didn't get the impression that there was any sort of law on this subject that GCO could live with .

    I fail to see how any red flag law would pass even just common sense muster. Are they really going to start locking people up for something they might do in the future? Even if they could protect due process someone could ruin someone's life with a simple phone call and a statement of concern real or not. The accused person would face serious financial and public problems even if found not guilty.

    Our vaunted Bill of Rights began turning into the Bill of Suggestions many years ago.

    So when Trump says he’s hopeful that the NRA won’t be an obstacle to strengthening the nation’s gun laws, you know he’s planning something not good for gun rights.

    Trump couldn't care less about gun rights.

    There better not be background checks required for private party sales. If that garbage passes, I hope the SCOTUS slaps it down.

    They haven't done so for other states that have passed it.

    SCOTUS has already relegated the RTKBA to a second class status by refusing to hear any more petitioners. They are allowing circuit courts like the 9th Circuit to decide the constitutionality of firearms laws. These circuit and appeals courts are the ones erasing the Second Amendment. They are the ones writing the case-law, and those rulings are almost never favorable to our rights.

    That's not entirely correct. Some states already require private party sales to go through NICS or equivalent. When they implement ERPOs the background check requirement is already there.

    These states have implemented red flag laws. (b/g check in blue)

    I meant that SCOTUS hasn't knocked down any background check requirements for private sales.

    This is off topic but when did Jerry Henry become president of GCO?
