Looks like Georgia may face the same problems Virginia is facing.

I don't think Governor Kemp would ever support a bill that challenges our 2A rights.

Seriously folks, unless we permanently boot the UN out of the US. Quit electing anti America people to represent us, this will be coming to every last state.

This bill will never see the light of day. The 4 sponsors are all VERY liberal democrats and it is in the Judiciary Committee and will most likely get killed there. Governor Kemp ran on protecting our 2A rights and even had commercials with him holding guns and more guns in the background.

Yep, that's what too many folks thought here in Virginia a year ago. Now look at the fine mess Va gun owners are in. Bloomberg is now free to spend his millions in your state.

I am not saying we get complacent at all, I just don't think this is going to make it through at this time. We all need to wake up and realize this is serious.

Well you guys have been freely inviting hollyweird to move to Ga for something like 10+ years and Bloomberg has already stated Ga is next on his list.
Fight em hard.

The voting patterns are changing due to the shift in demographics. The numbers of people who votes these yahoos into office are gaining on us.

I think all of us need to be aware of what's going on & who's trying to get elected in our state.

That's sadly true, but when they (Hollyweird) threatened to leave and take their business elsewhere if our Governor wouldn't back down on supporting "The Heartbeat Bill" he basically said leave then, Georgia's a sanctuary state for babies so piss-off. Chic-fil-A owns Pinewood Studios now and Kemp held his ground when it came down to money and politics. He's set a precedence for his convictions.

I wish the California tech companies would leave my state to prove a point. Gentrification can raise an economy quick, but hurt in the long run.

I keep saying, the liberal nut job gun grabbers know these bills have no chance of passing. These proposed bills are designed to get good law abiding people to boast online about what they'll do when someone comes to get their guns. The things these people boast about will be used sometime in the future for evidence in "red flag" cases.

DON'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT WHAT YOU MIGHT DO, OR MIGHT NOT DO IF SOMEONE COMES TO GET YOUR GUNS.

One of my friends is a Georgia House floor leader and we talked yesterday, He is aware of SB281 even though it is in the senate and he said there was no chance it would pass. Ga Republicans came very close to losing the Governor's seat this last time, people that care about 2A and other conservative issues need to be more active at the polls.

.

That's a great point! The left likes to agitate then use our response as ammunition against us. Don't give them anything to use against us. Our gun safes should be like our bank account, private! This country could learn a lesson from Hitler. Once the citizens had no self defense he was able to do exactly what he wanted to do! The United States citizen has gotten weak over time and I honestly believe a majority will now down and hand over their guns if it came to it. It's sad but true. If everyone still had grit this country wouldn't be where it's at today. Hopefully Virginia Patriots will stand up and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH and get that governor out of office before he pushes his liberal agenda down their throats. Set a precedent that we are not going to take any more and that the Constitution is still valid and strong. Peaceful of course, unless their side breaks that peace first! I'm not surprised that California passed gun control so easily. New York is another that didn't surprise me. Now they are trying in southern states!! I didn't expect it to go over easily down here.

. We are very active. Unfortunately there's less of us now as the left appeals to the younger generation with all this "free stuff" talk. I'm from a strong conservative family, but my nephew's and nieces are going left and at the voting age. What appeals to them? I have no clue! Perhaps the free college education? Universal health insurance? Idk. It's being pushed and taught in school how great socialism is. History books are being re written from our time. The civil war, the revolutionary war is not being taught. The kids these days don't know what America had to do to be America. They don't know the value of the Constitution! I made sure my kids knew. They didn't learn in school. But I had them study it at home. When they asked about it at school, they were told "we don't teach that anymore because we aren't sure of the accuracy". ***.

This sort of crap is coming to every state in the Union sooner or later. Let's use Wyoming as an example. It's just about the most conservative, pro-gun state there is... but there are a whopping 500,000 residents living there. Now imagine if somebody lets Amazon build a new distribution center there, or Hollywood comes to town. All it would take is a measly half-million California or east coast transplants to move in and fill those jobs and suddenly it's a blue state. We are being outnumbered slowly but surely, as the leftists leave their ***thole high-tax states and infest neighboring states instead. And then the doors are wide open for people from third-world countries to move here and take all the jobs (not just low-wage, but high-wage like IT as well) for a small fraction of the pay folks like you or I would make. And of course they bring their entire families here with them as well.

50 years from now we will no longer recognize this country... that is pretty much assured.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

It's a shame. Decent, hard working, misinformed people vote for liberal, and anti gun politicians. (either because of what they see on the news, or simply because they're....not very smart). This turns the places they live into crime ridden cesspools. These people move to conservative areas, vote for liberals, and turn these areas into crime ridden cesspools.

I share your concerns about the next 50 years. Both of my Grandsons are good, smart, hard working conservative teenagers but I fear for their futures.

There are two primary reasons for the defeat of Conservatives in the past few decades. The Marxist Communists took over the education systems and the Media. That is where the battles need to be fought to protect our country from being taken over by there Marxist propaganda.
