‘Suspend enforcement’: Georgia lawmaker wants to loosen gun control laws amid coronavirus outbreak
The Left is right to call for the release of prisoners. The Right is correct to call for loosening gun laws.
“We need to suspend enforcement, especially during the state of emergency, when so many individuals need to be able to defend themselves and their families and their loved ones and their property,” said Republican state Rep. Matt Gurtler, according
to GBP Radio.
Under the current public health emergency declared in Georgia, Republican Gov. Brian Kemp can override state laws. Gurtler wants Kemp to suspend enforcement of certain gun restrictions in the state.
Under current state law, Georgia residents need a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
