The idiots under the Atlanta Gold Dome are considering a new law. And you can tell that these morons we sent to ATL are playing politics with our emotions in an effort to pander for votes. Like that is normal.
This time, they are playing with people's lives.
Under consideration is a law that would allow people to carry concealed weapons into churches, restaurants (with alcohol being served, mind you) & "transportation facilities." As long as they have a concealed weapons permit, guns in the church. (See news article.)
All we need is to have people in a religious debate have instant access to weapons. And if you've ever seen a knock-down-drag-out in church, you know that bloodshed is right around the corner. Imagine how the pastor would feel moderating a contentious budget meeting.
Look, churches have some great folks in 'em. They also attract the most mean-spirited, nut jobs I've ever met. And we want them in a room in a religious frenzy, armed like Rambo? I certainly wouldn't feel safe knowing that some religious whack job has a loaded Glock just waiting to expend a few rounds at the heretic sitting near me.
