Not too long ago I found myself in a discussion on social media site, with a person who was making some claims about Stun Guns that were not accurate. What this person said, was that you must have a concealed weapons permit for your stun gun or you couldn’t carry it. The information that she was providing was not accurate and when I tried to correct the statement, I was met with hostility and name calling.
It always amazes me how people feel that they are experts about something when they don’ t take the time to really understand what they are talking about. In this case she was receiving her information from her Law-enforcement friends, so I understand why she thought she was correct.
I have blogged about this topic before on Stun Gun legalities most recently about the Supreme court ruling in March. It is very important to know what the laws in your state or city are and I am providing a link that will give you all of the laws and restrictions for your information.
In today’s day and age, it is very easy to google for any information and when I did it before I posted this blog. An article popped up about Georgia Colleges now allowing students to carry Stun Guns on Campus.
For the first time, students at Georgia’s public colleges and universities will be allowed to legally carry stun guns, starting Friday.
State Rep. Buzz Brockway, R-Lawrenceville, sponsored the bill and told Channel 2’s Lori Geary this is all about safety.
“During the session, I was getting calls, especially from students at Georgia State, because there were three robberies in the library while we were in session, so there were a lot of students who contacted me to say, ‘Hey can I have one now?'” Brockway said.
Brockway said most campus policies prohibited the electroshock weapons on campus but this state law will trump those policies.
Earlier this year, Gov. Deal vetoed the campus carry bill, which would have allowed licensed gun owners to bring their weapons onto campus, excluding dorms, fraternity and sorority houses and sporting events.
Georgia HB 792 allows anyone 18 years or older or currently enrolled in a Georgia public college to carry a stun gun anywhere on campus for full article
Protecting yourself is your right and it is protected under the constitution. Make sure you are taking the time to really know what you can and cannot do. And if you are traveling to a different place. Check on the laws.
