From Gwinnett Daily:

. . . It’s not too late. If they can reach an agreement, the bill could be attached as an amendment to a related measure that would allow motorists to carry their registered guns anywhere they choose inside their cars.
The second bill passed the House early in the session and won the Senate Rules Committee’s approval last month.
So, there’s a legislative avenue available for the guns-at-the-workplace bill.
But that doesn’t mean it’s going to see the light of day this year. Both sides appear determined not to give in on their positions.
Fleming said the chamber won’t sign off on anything that reduces private property rights.
Cox said the NRA has no problem waiting until next year, or even longer, to achieve its ends. . . .

that's why i'm confused. why would the article say registered when registration isn't required?
Probably because the writer knows nothing about GA gun laws.

haha. with the press, is that really a shock?
What is worse is when Assembly people, such as a few in the Judiciary Non-Civil committee have to be told that there is no such thing as registration in Georgia.

Those same people think there is a national registration too. NICS is not a registration.

Frankly it is scary that some of the people that control our laws regarding firearms (some members of the Judicary Non-civil committee in particular) have absolutly no idea what those laws already on the books mean.

that's really sad. makes me believe more and more that these politicians are more worried about getting votes than actually doing anything worth a damn.

With the ridiculous amount of gun laws on the books, both state and federal, is it really hard to believe that they would be confused?

But, I still can't give them a pass. When you take a job it is up to you to make yourself familiar with all aspects of it.

Not just the press, try Atlanta PD, Lenox substation behind Petsmart. When I reported a stolen firearm, uniformed cops asked me if it was registered, followed up with, "Do you have your receipt," and "How do we know it's yours?"

Hm... Just gave you a serial number. I can retrieve the carry case it came with from my house or the ten spare mags I had for it...

They then proceeded to call me twice over the next month to find out if I'd found it yet. Er, no, I'm not in the habit of filing a police report when I can't find my sunglasses either, you idiots.

True, but they should at least make themselves familiar with it before trying to pass another law or making a statement about something like that. That goes for anything, though: research should be done ahead of time.
