Georgia's Common Sense Lawful Carry Act, signed by the governor Tuesday, protects lawfully carrying citizens from unknowingly becoming criminals by clarifying where they can and cannot carry their weapons. Recent federal gun restriction proposals by Rep. Hank Johnson (D Ga.) and Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D N.J.), barring weapons from airport property, would only trap law abiding citizens into becoming criminals. Neither gentleman has thought through the implications of their proposals nor do they have the power to encroach on Georgia's right to work for its citizens. We have a representative government; a government that is elected by the people to work for the people. Many federal officials in Washington have forgotten this, and the recent federal proposals against the Lawful Carry Act are the perfect example.
