Thread: Brady Center sues Georgia town over gun law

  1. Brady Center sues Georgia town over gun law

    http://www.wyff4.com/news/national/Brady-Center-sues-Georgia-town-over-gun-law/-/9324256/20189624/-/4kruqt/-/index.html?absolute=true

    As much as I despise the Brady Campaign and encourage gun ownership, I can't help but agree here. Requiring people to own and gun or fining them if they don't...they're basically being fined either way. And how do you keep track of who owns a gun and who doesn't? To me this would create a registry...

    It says Nelson, Ga in the article. But I know there's another town that has had the same law for many many years. This town in the article must have just passed the law.

    Isn't it a requirement of the militia to own a gun?

    See I kinda was curious about that as well. Making it a violation of the 2nd amendment is a bit of a stretch, and making it a violation of the 14th amendment to me is also. But at the same time, I haven't seen the exact wording of the law so who knows,

    fining those that do not have a gun in that town is similar to fining people w/o health insurance, no?

    Well we know how the SCOTUS feels about that. Fine away.

    Nobody is going to be fined over this law.

    Unghhhh?!

    Having a hard time understanding why anyone cares about this, much less the Brady Center:
    The law exempts anyone who opposes gun ownership or has certain disabilities, and city leaders say there's no penalty. They also say the law isn't being enforced.
    I suppose it makes a plausible excuse for a lawsuit. Other than that, a total load of bull dung all the way around.
