I am curious as to the laws surrounding bearing arms in Atlanta/Georgia. It is one thing to research but another to hear from the locals. I am a huge supporter of good citizens bearing arms and the rights that come with them. After reading all of the information about crime in all maybe people should bear arms and secure themselves! The more people armed (the legal way) the less crimes are committed because of the perception and uncertainty of not knowing if someone is armed or not. I recall reading about this in article a few years ago.

Anyway, what do you all think about bearing arms and do you think it would help some feel more safe. BTW: it was common for people to have guns in America's earlier years.

I don't know about everyone carrying guns.

I personally wouldn't feel safe carrying a gun because I'm likely to have pms some day and shoot someone just because they were getting on my nerves. Then I'd go to jail. That doesn't sound too safe to me.

If you want to have a discussion on the merits of bearing arms and if people feel safer with them you need to have it in "other topics" forum. This forum is for local topics only. You are welcome to discuss the local laws pertaining to gun ownership but keep it at that.
