Georgia joins the gun-a-thon obsession - guns everywhere becoming a dangerous fashion trend

It's cynical and certainly not funny, but it seems to me the ownership of guns in America has now reached
the obsession level of a fashion craze. It won't be long before models with pencil thin figures will wear tiny handguns in their cleavage. Gun manufacturers will soon be crafting these deadly fashion accessories in designer colors. Men will wear their fashion weapons like an extension of their phallus designs.

In George, the Southern fashionistas might  even be pre-ordering their custom made weapon designs as I write this blog.

Unfortunately, Georgia doesn't want to be accused of being the last southern state to sign on to guns on demand obsession, so the Governor signed a law allowing all  guns all the time, even if the weapons are accidentally carried into an airport.

Of course, Georgia is the state where born again Christians believe fervently in pro-life and anti abortion politics. Being pro-life doesn't seem to matter when it comes to guns. Of course, protecting babies in utero is noble and moral. Yet, if an expectant mother happens to be shot by a gun in Georgia, it might not be quite such a terrible crime as accessing an abortion, even if the mother's decision happens to be driven by crises circumstance - like rape.  

I'm even surprised guns aren't sold at home retail parties.

Meanwhile, the National Rifle Association controls all politicians who might stand in opposition to unlimited access to guns. In other words, anyone who dares to speak sensibly about gun ownership is simply defeated at the ballot box. This is corruption by one special interest group that's abusing the Second Amendment rights provided by the US Constitution, upheld by the US Supreme Court. (Former US Supreme Court Justice Stevens is speaking about the Court's recent decisions to lift regulation about gun ownership. Stevens says the Second Amendment, written in 1787, was intended to protect militias, not to support gun ownership of deadly assault weapons for private use.)

With Georgia's Governor Deal's signature, the state joins the gun-a-thon fashion obsession. Huffington Post reports:

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) signed a sweeping gun rights bill on Wednesday.  House Bill 60, also known as The Safe Carry Protection Act, will allow licensed gun owners to carry their firearms into public places, including bars, nightclubs, schools, churches and government buildings.

“People who follow the rules can protect themselves and their families from people who don’t follow the rules,” Deal said, according to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution. “The Second Amendment should never be an afterthought. It should reside at the forefronts of our minds.”

The National Rifle Association has praised the bill as "the most comprehensive pro-gun reform legislation introduced in recent state history" and called it a “historic victory for the second amendment.” Americans for Responsible Solutions, a gun control organization started by former Rep. Gabrille Giffords (D-Ariz.), fought todefeat the bill, calling it "the most extreme gun bill in America."

Colin Goddard, a survivor of the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting who now works with the advocacy group Everytown For Gun Safety, called the bill "unprecedented."

“The Stand Your Ground expansion is truly a new type of Stand Your Ground as we know it,” Goddard said of the measure, which some critics dubbed the "guns everywhere" bill. “To expand it in such a way to remove all carrying or possession offenses is really unprecedented.”

I wonder if Georgia's Governor would throw live influenza virus on the streets of Atlanta? Perhaps Governor Neal needs to understand how guns kill people just like germs, viruses and cancer.

Shame on the justices of the US Supreme Court! Their Second Amendment rulings protect gun owners rights over the innocent lives of victims of uncontrolled violence, caused by access to guns.
These victims of gun violence includes police officers and Congresswoman Giffords, of Arizona.

But, right now, the obsession with gun ownership has gone vogue.
Owning a gun is as fashionable as hip clothing or designer shoes.

Consequently, thousands more innocent people will preventably die as a result of this unexplainably deadly trend.
