    Fayette County, GA Considering Gun Ban!

    http://www.georgiacarry.org/cms/2007...ted-ordinance/

    On Thursday, May 10, 2007, at 7:00 p.m., the Fayette County Parks and Recreation Commission is requesting that the Board of Commissioners in Fayette County adopt an ordinance that would prohibit the possession of firearms in Fayette County parks. The text of the proposal follows:

    Sec. 14-2 Weapons
    It shall be unlawful for any person to use or possess in any Fayette County park, historic site, or recreation area any firearms, bows and arrows, spring guns, air rifles, slingshots, or any other device which discharges projectiles by any means, unless the device is unloaded and stored so as not to be readily accessible or unless such use has been approved by the Fayette County Board of Commissioners.
    This proposed gun ban is expressly preempted by state law, which would permit only “reasonably limiting or prohibiting the discharge of firearms.”

    GCO urges its members to show up and be heard in opposition to this gun ban ordinance on Thursday evening when the gun ban will be considered. The location and other information relating to the Board of Commissioners is here.

    Oh, I thought you meant a la Morton Grove, or the antithesis of Kennesaw.

    I thought you meant "banned from possession/ownership in the county."

    Well, this isn't good either, but it's not what I initially thought you meant.

    Looks like the leaders in this county haven't learned the lesson amply available from thousands of locations around the country.

    Heck, all they have to do is look to Kennesaw to see that LOTS of guns does NOT mean any more crime.

    Why is this even being considered, knowing that the Georgia Legislature has pre-empted fireams legislation to itself?

    Do these morons not know that, or do they think they can disregard a general law?

    Wait, don't answer that..........

    I mentioned in another thread that legislators who pass what they MUST KNOW are illegal laws should be charged criminally for it.

    If they know that the state law preempts them, and they go ahead and do this anyway -- you know, just to see how long and how far they get away with it -- they should go to jail for malfeasance and official corruption.

    If true, then don't worry about it. Fight it, sure. Be vocal and get your lawmakers heads out of the sand. But, don't ever, under any circumstances, go unarmed into these victim death zones. It's not in your best interest, and the power of the State of Georgia is behind you.

    Victory for GCO!!!

    http://www.georgiacarry.org/cms/cate...ty-preemption/

    Proposed Ordinance Removed from Fayette Agenda

    GCO recieved the following email from Fayette County Commissioner Maxwell, and I provide it here after obtaining his permission:

    Subject: Fayette County Weapons Ordinance

    Ed & John,

    The County Administrator has emailed me and indicated that the “weapons” ordinance has been taken off the Agenda for tomorrow. I believe that the Chairman will simply state that, “The item has been removed from the Agenda.” I do not anticipate any discussion (but you never know). I have personally spoken with two other Commissioners that are against the proposed ordinance (I am opposed as well) so I see no way that the ordinance would pass. The Commission probably does need to address vandalism and fireworks. If this thing heats up I will get you involved, hopefully before it makes the papers this time. I do want to say thank you for your diligent monitoring of our Second Amendment.

    Eric
    Thanks to those who contacted their Fayette County Commissioners in opposition to the proposed gun ban ordinance.
