On Thursday, South Dakota became the 14th state in the U.S. to allow legally eligible residents to carry concealed handguns without permits.

South Dakota's new Republican governor, Kristi Noem signed the bill into state law on Thursday.

This is an important development in Georgia because new Republican Georgia Governor Brian Kemp ran on a campaign of bringing 'Constitutional Carry' legislation (or legislation allowing legally eligible residents to carry concealed handguns without permits) to Georgia if elected.

With a population of only 869,666 residents in 2017, South Dakota may be an increasingly deep-red trending state that may have only about one-twelfth (or about just a little over 8%) of the population of Georgia (10.43 million residents), which is a deep-red that state that appears to be trending extremely heavily towards purple and possibly blue status in the not-too-distant future.

But the development of a deep-red GOP-dominated state like South Dakota eliminating the requirement for concealed carry permits could put renewed and increased pressure on new Republican Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Georgia Republicans from conservatives and Second Amendment advocates to pass 'Constitutional Carry' legislation into Georgia state law as soon as possible while the GOP still controls the Governor's Mansion and both chambers of the Georgia Legislature.

Stay tuned...

A bill for that has been introduced already in Georgia, but, looks like it won't go anywhere this year as it has little support. There is still some more clean up in off-limits places that has to be done first before we go after permit less carry.

Here is my question. Say you have a permit that is coming up for renewal within the next year. Should you go through all the hassle or just wait until the law changes?

Kind of weird watching Atlanta from TV @ work as part of my job in Texas this superbowl. Nice light effects from the stadium this half time show.

Renew. That bill will not even get out of committee this year.

Some behind-the-scenes footage of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence and the production crew on the set of "Bad Boys 3" which apparently is being shot and produced in Atlanta. The first two movies of the "Bad Boys" were set and shot in Miami.
