GCO is a pro-gun group with a dangerous agenda . . .

So starts the editorial by Maureen Downey on the AJC editorial page today.  The editorial frankly admits that children have died in local parks to criminal violence in spite of local gun bans, but she calls on local governments not only to continue their useless bans in violation of state law, but to fight GCO with litigation.  GCO wonders whether she will pick up their legal expenses for fighting a clear state preemption law.  GCO also wonders whether she would urge local governments to fight against other civil rights.

    I’m a law abiding, background checked, productive member of society.

    Whether or not I have a gun on me when I go to the park (or anywhere else) is nobody’s business but mine and will never be an issue and never even be revealed to anyone at all unless I (or my familiy) become the victim of a criminal assault.

    When will they get that it’s not me that needs to be regulated and controlled by disarmament laws…and that the people who are a threat don’t respond to disarmament laws?

    It is a shame that Ms. Downey and others like her are so focused on attempting to remove the law-abiding citizens’ right to self-defense. We all know that criminals will not obey any so-called “gun free zone” and that establishing such zones simply causes the law-abiding citizen to be disarmed. Essentially they are disarmament zones that create a target rich environment for the criminal. Case in point, most of our nation’s most violent crimes occured in these disarmament zones: Virginia Tech, Columbine, Lubby Texas and other massacres are all examples of this point.

    When will people realize that disarming the most law-abiding segment of society does nothing but create additional areas for criminals to safely ply their trade in violence?
