Fact Check: Responding to the NRA’s hysterical (and false) attacks on business
The NRA says SB 43 is good … NRA members not so sure!
What the NRA says is one thing … NOW read what NRA members say! And members of the Georgia Sports Shooting Association – the official NRA state affiliate – say!
· If you start regulating what people can and cannot do on his own private property, you’re playing quite the dangerous game with definitions, the law, and what remains of your Constitutional Rights. Tread lightly.
Gun owners, above all people, should cherish and fight for individual rights. Especially the rights of people to do what they want with their own property. Regardless if it is open to the public or not, it is still their property and they should be allowed to make the rules.
· Gotta agree. It seems to me that a person’s right to self-defense/right to bear arms doesn’t trump a person’s private property rights. It also seems to me that a person’s rights as a private property owner don’t trump a person’s right to bear arms.
· If you are a business owner, you are a property owner. If your employer does not want you leaving weapons in your automobile that is parked on his property then either don’t do it, or find another job.
Your right to carry does NOT trump another’s property rights. Period.
· The “law’ you crave is premised on every leftist concept about curtailing private property rights since the New Deal … My property, my terms — you don’t like it, don’t come to my house, my business, my apartment building, whatever. It is a big world.
