Obviously, Georgia’s felony gun ban did not stop these two armed robbers from bringing�guns into the campus parking lot.� Such bans stop only the law abiding.

    This is becoming an all to often occurrence. How many people will it take to make the general public aware that there is now the knowledge within the criminal community that colleges, schools, country clubs, state parks and any where that affluent people gather is a target rich environment. It is not just the affluent, it is anywhere that is not within the stereotypical crime area. You know, the safe neighborhoods. Well they are not safe anymore. I recently found out through a reliable school administrator that there are 5 separate incidences of young thug gang banger wannabes making it inside West Side High School in Macon, GA with firearms.Yep they got guns inside the gun free zone. Apparently the criminals don’t care about the law. Wow, what an epiphany. I do belive that is why they are criminals in the first place.
    Why hasn’t there been a news story about that? Is it because all 5 were black? Incidentally they were. But the thuggery and race are not the issue. The issue is that the so called gun free zone only works to prevent the law abiding student from being armed. The so called rent a cops aka campus security are lame, weak and weak minded. They bully the students, take away cell phones on a regular basis and leave the students completely defenseless. At least with a cell phone they can call 911. If the teacher cannot stop the kid from chatting on the phone take it from him or her, but RETURN it after class.

    Doesn’t anyone outside of the gun culture realize what is happening?
    Maybe if they suffer through a home invasion or lose a loved one to an armed repeat felon then it will sink in.

    I had an incident recently where I suspected a person was in my home. I chambered one of 14 rds of .45 and announced to the house that I was armed, I do not shoot to wound and they had best just lay down and pray they live. I also pre-dialed 911 and then cleared my house room to room just like my uncle taught me. Had there been an intruder, and he was not in compliance with my clear directive, I would have had a bio hazard on my hands.

    In short, I will not hesitate, I will not miss, and I will not stop.

    Fight back, God built into each and every one of us.
