A couple of fake boobs, a lab grown vag and men may never (have to) leave the house again.

Bill would allow firefighters to have guns on duty

Peace officers and a whole crowd of other job descriptions, defined in O.C.G.A. § 16-11-130 Exemptions from Code Sections 16-11-126 through 16-11-127.2, are exempt from the license requirement - on or off duty and it's not a CCW, CCP or any derivative thereof. The current license is titled Georgia Weapons Carry License. Don't know how far back it goes but prior to 2010 it was Georgia Firearms License. No mention of concealed in the title of either. Georgia does not differentiate between open and concealed carry. The license is required for either (with exceptions).

2 shot at Florida movie theater, 1 later dies

[quote]Meanwhile today yet another school shooting. I'm open to suggestions. You tell me.[/quote]

Couldn't find a neutral source so I'll use CNN http://www.cnn.com/2014/01/14/justice/new-mexico-school-shooting/?hpt=hp...

[quote]A 12-year-old boy entered his middle school gym, pulled a shotgun out of a bag and opened fire on students waiting for school to begin Tuesday, wounding two of them, said authorities in Roswell, New Mexico.[/quote]

shooting someone - illegal, sounds reasonable, sensible and rational
12 year old with gun - illegal, sounds reasonable, sensible and rational
12 year old with gun at middle school - don't know the current law for NM but fairly certain illegal, sounds reasonable, sensible and rational

What now?

Ban "assault weapons" - totally irrelevant depending upon definition
Ban "high capacity" magazines - totally irrelevant
Universal background checks - totally irrelevant
Mandatory training for those with carry license - totally irrelevant
Limit number firearms purchased in a specified time period - totally irrelevant
Track volume of ammunition purchased - totally irrelevant

@mpd0.59: I don't think (quite sure of it actually) that all active duty cops know all concealed carry ordinances of their own state. What's your point?

I must have missed the part of the story stating that the suspect was a concealed carry permit holder.

State Patrol: 117 car wrecks last month in Athens

But ability to drive must be demonstrated before one can get a license and mandatory, state approved training if 16. There should be no accidents or negligent acts.

Danielsville man caught with stolen gun, meth at Athens mall

If you have a permit and you choose to drive, there are consequences that sometimes you have to face. If you are doing nothing wrong, and someone calls the police since they saw you driving your car, you should be happy to show the ACCPD your permit. They are doing their job.

Why not ban meat?

Only 1/5 as dead if killed by a knife?

Man kicked in groin, taken to hospital

Suppose it's too much to ask that this is the eventual outcome of the story about the man snapping his carrot outside the lady's back door? The husband really caught up with him and kicked him in the jimmy?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
