Texan Reaction to New Georgia Gun Law
Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed The Safe Carry Protection Act into law Wednesday, allowing people with a gun license to carry guns in many public and some private places.
Some Texans believe the legislation would work well in Texas."The good guys are not going to be able to conquer the bad guys unless they have something to conquer them with," said Scott Keating, who agrees with the law.
The law allows guns in any government building that is open for business and does not have security personnel restricting access of screening visitors. It also allows guns in many areas of airports, just not past the security checkpoint."If there's a lot of guns out there that you don't know about, what's the harm?" said Dave Burdett, owner of Burdett & Sons Outdoor Adventure store. "I don't see any big problem with it because again, nobody's going to have a concealed handgun license unless they have a very clean record and they're pretty solid people and know what they're doing."
The law also allows guns in bars and churches that allow owners to carry."Going into a bar, getting drunk carrying a weapon, I don't particularly care for that, but a designated driver or going to restaurants that are 51 percent--that's no problem with that," said Scott Davis, who agreed with most of the law. "You have your background check to make sure you're not a violent offender. I'd say almost all the CHL owners are responsible owners because they don't want to lose their license or their ability to carry."
By Philip Pullella VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Floribeth Mora Diaz does not care if people think she is crazy. She is convinced - and so is the Vatican - that she owes her life to a miracle cure because she prayed to the late Pope John Paul. "I have experienced the mercy of God in my own life and I am grateful," she told a news conference at the Vatican on Thursday explaining what Church investigators believe was a miracle attributed to John Paul's intercession with God. Pope Francis will elevate John Paul to sainthood in the Roman Catholic Church on Sunday at a ceremony expected to draw more than one million people to the Vatican.
