Sunday’s Atlanta Journal Constitution reports an amazing surge in the number of firearms license applications for 2008. 121,219 people applied for firearms licenses in 2008, and, since these licenses are good for 5 years, this represents a growing constituency that will be difficult for legislators to ignore. It is exremely difficult to trample on the rights of more than half a million Georgians. The growing number of people exercising their right to bear arms bodes well or the future of civil liberties in Georgia. There is a quote from GCO in the article.
