Can we get Wayne Hill back inb office. What when he left we had a 30 million surplus as a cushion.

How is Cobb County doing the raises and budget cuts as their tax base is down as well. Maybe Charlotte should get her Nash over there to see what is up.

Maybe is is all the poor land deals we have paid for the Gwinnett Braves Stadium, the trash lawsuits and the other mismanagment that has taken place.

This is the only government fee that I enjoy paying every five years,

I just can not wait to get renew my permit in 2016 and get the new card

A government that is afraid of an armed society is a government to be afraid of!!

It sounds like Dana does not trust its sales staff to verify buyers. So now I just find a law enforcement officer that gets his discount to buy the rifle for me and he make a profit and the gun is now into other peoples hands and no trace on the second or third sale.

I should not use the law enforcement officer in the wrong context, Dana sells to anyone that works in the armed guard business. Dunbar, Loomis, Alied , and all those other companies that are known to have bad hires.

Congrats to her, all she needed was a larger magazine so he would not be in the hospital bed but lying in the morgue on a cold slab.

If this happened more often then some of these dirt bags will think twice before committing crimes.

A quick copy of the tag line in today's paper:

LOGANVILLE — Authorities say a Loganville woman shot an intruder five times and the man was arrested after he tried fleeing the scene.

here is the link for easy going:

Loganville woman hiding with children shoots intruder by Associated Press

All I can say is she should have had a larger capacity magazine so he would not be hospitalized but lying in the morgue instead.

I hope you do not consider the GDP as a biased paper for printing this!

Now, would you not expect the world's busiest airport to lead in gun confiscations?

This is a statistical number game and has nothing to do with the effectiveness of the TSA in Atlanta. The airports that need to worry are the ones who carry many less passengers and are in the top ten.

Jan: Parents have run over their children with cars, friends kill friend who are passengers in cars. I guess the licensing for drivers does not work so what make s you think gun licenses will work?

Jan so can you explain how you have come about your capacity for clips?

Anyone who shoots a pistol (competition) can drop and reload in less than two seconds, I would advise you to watch some competitions. Same goes for a rifle if you are competent.

Banning guns is going to work as well as prohibition!


Don 1 year, 7 months ago on Nearly 50 guns stolen in smash-and-grab

Jan I guess you are much wiser than the US Supreme Court on the 2nd amendment. I ask you to read their rulings in the last four years when this was presented.

Here is a link to some Australia crime stats.

So a gun store was robbed due to the fact that the fire code requires easy exit from a building, that is fine during operating hours but when a store is closed anyone in there should have the opportunity to burn to death.

So is this theft any worse than the "Fast and Furious" debacle by the Obama administration? Oh, that is right we will never know how many guns they sold illegally to Mexicans since Holder will not testify. I am willing to bet it was more than 100!!

Jan I do like your pix (rock), maybe you should go crawl and hide under it.

You may want to look at this article on the effects of the gun ban in Australia.

Great more violent crimes there.

As far as your drug comment you do not need to know who and where drugs are being sold just read the paper and look at the busts going on and the drug abuse in this country.

By the way i have turned in dealers and received rewards for doing so once the case was prosecuted.

Just another fact on something we need to get the government involved in. So in 2011 561 children under the age of 12 were killed by guns yet 349 deaths occurred the same year for falling furniture and televisions. So under this logic should be ban flat screen tv's and high furniture such as dressers? Maybe Obama needs to get Biden to head up a committee for this as well.

Maybe we need to talk more about gun safety in schools, learn how to respect a gun and what it has the capability of doing rather than try not to talk about them. When something becomes "taboo" kids become intrigued with these things and want to experiment with them. I think pot is one of the best examples of this and I do not condone using it. same goes for alcohol for teens I think.
