What’s going on: Georgia’s Republican governor on Wednesday signed legislation enacted by the GOP-controlled state legislature that expands gun rights in that state by allowing qualified gun owners to carry concealed firearms: (1) in restaurants that serve alcohol, (2) aboard public transportation, and (3) in public parks. The NRA says the new GOP state law “represents the most comprehensive pro-gun reform measure to be enacted in nearly 20 years.”
Winners: Public safety in Georgia. Gun owners. Gun manufacturers. Gun rights activists. Republicans.
Losers: Criminals in and around Georgia. Left-wing Democrats. The liberal media. Left-wing academics.
