I’M JUST SAYING
The Governor of the state of Georgia Nathan Deal signed a wide-ranging gun bill into law today.
House Bill 60, or the Safe Carry Protection Act of 2014 specifies where Georgia residents can carry weapons. Included are provisions that allow residents who have concealed carry permits to take guns into some bars, churches, school zones, government buildings and certain parts of airports.
Calling it “a great day to reaffirm our liberties,” Deal said the law allows residents to protect their families and expands the list of places where they can legally carry firearms, while allowing certain property owners, namely churches and bars, to make judgments on whether they want worshipers and patrons carrying guns.
Wednesday’s signing came at an open-air picnic area along a creek in Ellijay, in northern Georgia. It opened with a prayer, the singing of the national anthem and a recital of the Pledge of Allegiance.
A dramatic gospel story describes Jesus acting with uncharacteristic aggression and driving out people who were selling things in the Temple. This story is often titled “Jesus Cleanses the Temple.” I wonder how Scripture would report Jesus dealing with church members carrying fire arms into the house of worship.
