"Creepy" Casey falls flat

Dear Georgia Gun Owner, “What’s his problem?!?  Gives me the creeps!” That’s what one Georgia Gun Owners member yelled to me across the Augusta Convention Center floor during Casey Cagle’s speech Saturday afternoon. Noticeably rattled by thousands of calls/texts/Facebook messages from GGO supporters insisting he come out in favor of Constitutional Carry, Cagle stumbled through the Second Amendment portion of his speech. Convention sources report to me that Cagle’s team

Casey Cagle is HIDING

Dear Georgia Gun Owners, For years, Casey Cagle has dipped, dodged and wiggled out of saying where he stands on Constitutional Carry. We can’t let him get away with it any longer. Now that Cagle is running for Governor, it’s vital gun owners get him on the record on the issue, while he’s out looking for votes. We can’t afford another Republican Governor who plays games with our Second Amendment

Slap in the face to gun owners

Georgia gun owner, Late yesterday, Governor Deal signed the weakest so-called “campus carry” bill in the country into law. The bill leaves in place thousands of buildings, housing units, classrooms, offices, and other places as “gun free zones.” Governor Deal openly bragged in the media and in his press release about the concessions and “compromise” he got from Republicans to weaken and water down the bill. This bill is a

Race for Governor Begins!

Dear Georgia Gun Owner,  The race for the next Governor of Georgia has begun! Late last week, Secretary of State Brian Kemp announced that he’s running for Governor on the Republican ticket. The next day, I came face-to-face with Kemp at the Cobb GOP Breakfast and asked him where he stands on Constitutional Carry (video below). In short, Kemp would not say where he stands on Constitutional Carry. For the

Revealed: Georgia Republicans Vote with Bloomberg

Dear Georgia Gun Owner, Yesterday, on the floor of the State Senate, four Georgia Republican Senators sided with anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg. By casting their vote against HB 280, they are now on public record as voting for gun control. Because the establishment gun lobby will not mention their names publicly for fear of offending legislators at the Capitol, we have no such concerns. The four anti-gun Senators are: State

Casey Cagle Blocks Constitutional Carry Vote

Dear Georgia Gun Owner, Lt. Governor Casey Cagle doesn’t want gun owners to know where legislators stand on Constitutional Carry. Using a legislative procedure called “engrossing,” Cagle blocked all amendments to three gun bills that were heard in the Georgia State Senate today. Lead Constitutional Carry bill sponsor, State Senator Josh McKoon, prepared a Constitutional Carry amendment to offer, but was not allowed to offer it because of Cagle’s blocking

Video Update: Dirty Dealings at the Capitol

Dear Georgia Gun Owner, Just two days left in this year’s meeting of the Georgia General Assembly. GGO Executive Director Patrick Parsons has all the behind-the-scenes details about what’s really going on at the Capitol in Atlanta. Lt. Governor Casey Cagle and the establishment gun lobby are doing everything in their power to cut a very dirty deal. Click here to watch the video, then forward on to your political

Dirty Deal Boxed Them In

Dear Georgia Gun Owner, By seeking to “compromise” your Second Amendment rights at the Capitol in Atlanta, the establishment gun lobby has boxed themselves in. With just four legislative days left in this General Assembly, they’ve put your gun rights up for “negotiation,” and the gun-grabbers have the upper hand. You see, Patrick, after Governor Nathan Deal vetoed the weak, watered down “campus carry” bill last year, the establishment gun

Another Constitutional Carry Resolution Passes

Dear Georgia Gun Owner, Another GOP county party in Georgia has passed a resolution urging the General Assembly to Pass Constitutional Carry! Last night, thanks to the efforts of GGO members and supporters in Gilmer County, our Constitutional Carry resolution passed unanimously. GGO member Margaret Williamson sent me the following note about why she pushed for the passage of the resolution: I am a naturalized U.S. citizen who was attracted

Constitutional Carry Resolution Passes

Dear Georgia Gun Owners, I want to extend a HUGE thanks to the scores of Georgia Gun Owners members who mobilized this weekend at the Cobb County GOP Convention. Not only did they help vote out the establishment Chairwoman of the party, they passed unanimously a resolution urging the General Assembly to pass Constitutional Carry legislation for Georgia. This is the largest GOP county convention in the state! Since the
