Welcome to ‘Carry Liberty’, a blog that will attempt to clarify gun laws, rights, and ownership. I have grown increasingly tired of misinformation, hyperbole, and direct lies being reported by a lazy and biased media, by anti-gun activist organizations, and taken as fact by a largely uninformed public.I will present facts on gun laws in the State of Georgia, a comparative look at laws in other states as well as on the Federal level. I will also look at the racial and politicized history of gun control.
Please keep in mind that I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on T.V. All of the information here is presented to the best of my ability to research the ever changing gun laws and political landscape. I will, if upon further research, or if I am notified of one, correct any errors or mistakes. I do not intend to cause debate on the need of gun ownership or on the validity of the carrying of firearms, but I do believe in self protection, preservation, and determination. In short, I believe in personal liberty.
Below is a short list of future articles that I will present as time allows and not necessarily in the order of listing.

The (Racial) History of Gun Laws – The Secret Behind Early Gun Control Laws
