If You Cling To God With One Hand, And Your Gun With The Other, Better Have Someone Else Available To Pour.

One of the most memorable lines of the last Presidential campaign was that Republicans were bitter people clinging to God and guns.

Maybe we’re bitter because we can’t figure out where our alcohol is supposed to fit in this equation.

We can’t summon the strength to allow local voters to decide if community standards tolerate alcohol sold on Sunday.

Yet, with SB 308 nearing passage in the House, we’ll soon have the option to be, as Ron White would say, drunk in Pub-lik, with our trusty firearm strapped to our side.

So, alcohol at home on Sunday = bad.

Alcohol plus firearm at bar on Sunday = YOU CAN HAVE MY GUN WHEN YOU PRY IT FROM MY COLD DRUNK HANDS!

I’ve really got to lower my expectations of logic from legislative actions during an election year.

    You got the line wrong. It wasn’t Republicans that Obama was talking about. It was the small town folks who were left behind when the mills closed down and left town.

    I love you man that was great. I wish I could be there tommorow night I would buy you many beers for that post. That has got to be the funniest sad but true post I have read all year. I nominate it for the sarcastic true post of the year.

    Specifically, who said that “Republicans were bitter people clinging to God and guns”?

    Please enlighten us, because I did not hear that during the campaign.

    I have no intention of getting into a debate on carrying in bars, etc, but I do want to speak on one issue that SB308 addresses.

    The current carry law prohibits carry at “public gatherings”; however, there is no definition either from the legislature or the courts of just what is a public gathering. With this being the case, how is the citizen supposed to be within the law, and how is the peace officer supposed to fairly enforce the law.

      I totally agree. There was the chance to clear this up but it wasn’t done. Another vague area for some officers is whether a citizen can wear an ankle hoster. Poll ten officers and 2 will say yes, 6 will say no, and 2 will say don’t know. Ask ten prosecutors and 8 will say they would throw the case out. Several local prosecutors send first time gun carry violations to a gun safety class, then dismiss or lower the charges.

  5. I am an NRA certified instructor as well as a GA POST general & firearms instructor. The NRA basic pistol course is pure and simple a safety and target shooting course. It does not address carry laws at all.

    Carry outside of the home isn’t even addressed by NRA courses until the Personal Protection Outside of the Home Course, and the NRA requires that a peace officer or attorney teach the legal portion, and the “public gathering” term can’t be defined by any of us.

    Ankle carry was at one time illegal in GA, but that was changed a couple of years ago.
