Has UGA been given a heads up on Gov’s Campus Carry Intentions?

While Georgia, including the 80% that thought Campus Carry was a bad idea (even before the Day Care issue was raised), waits breathlessly to see whether Governor Deal will veto the Campus Carry bill, others are planning for passage.

Or have they been given a heads up by the Governor’s Office that he’ll sign it into law? Check out this screenshot below from the Orientation section of the Class of 2020 part of the UGA website. It’s on what incoming freshmen should do to get ready for school. #5 is interesting…

Too small to read? Here’s #5 blown up.

Good advice? Discuss below.

I bought mine. The horror is even worse for me. I’ve heard “Fire at Will” numerous times. I usually skip my classes nowadays.

#6…”Georgia law now allows firearms on campus…” You may wish to remember that before you come on campus to rob, rape and commit crimes! ‘Nuff said!

In fairness it may have been advised by lawyers via future liability issues.

College students have always been defenseless shooting targets for robbers, thieves, rapist, thugs, gangs and Islamists. If the Campus Carry bill is signed by Deal, then at least some of them will be able to fight back to defend themselves and others. How is allowing someone to exercise their basic human right to self defense a bad thing?

I agree. As evidenced by your comment.

Those tabs – ALL those tabs – are making me twitchy. It’s like the tab equivalent of the 76,842 unread emails that taunt me from my mom’s iPhone screen.

Is anyone else old enough to remember when we had…wait for it…. shooting clubs…at out high schools?!?
And we have wuss professors quitting because of this new law? Un-freaking-believable! Don’t let the door hit you on your wussie little backside on the way out!

I will be applying for a campus gun store. In the interest of MAD we will even offer the Glock 18 machine pistol. They aren’t practical worth a damn but are beyond cool. For the coeds our bullet resistant wear will include the Kate Beckinsale line of skin hugging leather. Augmentable for any, um, augmentations but fair warning, the Glocks are a must to accessorize the ensemble. In the back we will have a firing range with a choice of targets like professors and opposing football coaches. ATF isn’t allowing grenade launchers yet but we may be able to work… Read more »

Call me old fashioned but I think pulling a trigger is pretty “wussie”. If you can’t fight with your brain then the least you could do is fight with your hands. Every school shooter from Columbine to Newtown were bullied and picked on cause they weren’t strong enough to “defend” themselves against their aggressors.

Only when they found their cowardly guns did they feel false strength. I guess that works for some people. But they still remain cowards.

You’re missing the whole point, Jack. The Campus Carry law is designed for innocent students to be able defend themselves again the Columbines, Va Techs and other criminals who may prey on unarmed students.

Hey Noway2016:

I would have enjoyed a shooting club at school, of course we did not have shootings as a regular news staple then, either.

Maybe we could agree that those people who work at schools ought not have to be armed, trained, and ready to use deadly force as a condition of employment.

I would descend to name calling, as you do, but that would be an affront to knuckle-draggers and window-lickers, everywhere.

You don’t like name calling, bridge? Did you not imply in your first comment that folks who supported the law were stupid? If not, what was the meaning in your comment?

I’ve never heard the term “window licker.” What is that?

The story reminds me of a co-worker that asked my boss to return “Mr. L. Fants” call @ (404) 624-5600, or the radio station that convinced its listeners that the city water department needed all the residents to flush their toilet at noon to free the stuck alligator out of the sewer line. UGA supplicants are not alone – The Technique in decades past always manage to snare a few unwary Tech students on this date. Enjoy all the April Fool’s shenanigans. By the way, the phone number is for the Atlanta zoo and it gets plenty of returned calls… Read more »

Actually Noway2016, my comment was sufficiently ambiguous to where one could take it either way. You chose correctly – I oppose the law. It takes a very long bridge to connect my comment to calling supporters stupid. But let’s not quibble – The law is stupid, dangerous, and unnecessary, at best. Plus, this law is pol election year pandering. God, Guns, Gayz, Get It? Same show, different URL. I suspect the Governor will VETO Campus Carry as a potential public menace. Noway16 I don’t doubt for a moment that we could easily chat, agree on many, many important matters –… Read more »

“In virtually every workplace, except where carrying a weapon is a job requirement, they are not allowed…” Not Allowed? By whom? At the most it may be PRIVATE company POLICY only, it certainly is not law. So, if one was of a mind, he could carry a weapon (into work at say, Macy’s…) get fired, then sue the s**t out of Macy’s for firing him. I’d actually like to see that litigated. That pesky ‘ol 2nd Amendment thingy… The reason for this legislation being proposed is that kids at Tech, as an example, are getting robbed and assaulted frequently. Maybe… Read more »

Looks like UGA will finally give students trigger warnings.

Dude, you’re 1,000% wrong here. Macy’s absolutely can set policies to prevent their employees from carrying guns. As a reminder to all of those out there, the 2nd Amendment applies to government and firearms only. Just like the 1st Amendment.

Noway, I expected more out of you.

Mike, please read again. I said that private entities had employment policies that forbade guns in their workplace. I just said it would be interesting to see that challenged in court by a woman , for example, who legally carries a gun in her purse during the course of her everyday life.

Good public policy has never been based on anecdotal evidence or solely on the personal experiences of a lawmaker. Noway suggests his personal experiences as good justification for law, which is typical for political party types and ideologues. The rest of us will just have to hope that traditional, evidence based, empirical data and common sense will prevail. Again, clean up Home Park and securing the academic workplace are far better solutions than allowing guns on campus, by right, IMHO. Noway, you sound like an interesting fellow, why were you subject to kidnapping, not once, but twice in your life???… Read more »

I was stationed in Colombia training the protective detail of the former Colombian prez. The FARC didn’t take too kindly to that. We caught them surveilling me twice. They never made an attempt. It was comical, though, to walk around Bogota with a 9 mm in a fanny pack with everyone knowing it was there
Oh, and deal will sign it!

So you are comparing your military service to an academic workplace? While I am appreciative for your military service, my initial comment stands: “In virtually every workplace, except where carrying a weapon is a job requirement, they are not allowed.”

Finally, after his courageous veto this week, Gov, Deal may be disinclined to further rumple Party rulings. Nevert the less, he may show further fortitude in denying Campus Carry.
