Choosing The Right Shooting Range Georgia GA

Outdoor Shooting Lanes When choosing a range in Georgia to go to it is always good to talk to someone has been there before, some considerations is whether the range only accommodates handguns, and/or rifles, or a mix of the two. If you're a new handgun shooter you may not want to be in the lane next to someone shooting a .308 rifle.

Depending on the type of range in Georgia that you have chosen you will be using anything from paper type Silhouette targets, Bull's-eye style targets or steel targets which could be stationary or moving and or interactive.

Typically the vast majority of indoor ranges in Georgia are designed primarily for handgun shooting, although there are some new newer ranges that have lanes set aside in another portion of the building for the larger caliber rifles.

Georgia, The Georgia State Constitution States: “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, but the General Assembly shall have power to prescribe the manner in which arms may be borne.”

While Georgia is generally considered to be a "shall issue" state, the actual Georgia firearms permit statute requires the permit applicant to obtain approval of the local county probate court judge, who can deny issuance based solely on a determination that the applicant "is not of good moral character". Georgia recognizes permits from any other state which recognizes Georgia's permit. Georgia reciprocates in recognizing firearms licenses with the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

Georgia state Rep. Charles Gregory is considered as "One of the Most Zealously Pro-Gun Legislators in America" after he filed four bills in the Georgia state legislature.  Charles Gregory is the representative-elect of a district that includes Kennesaw, Ga., which is "home to a still-current 30-year old ordinance that mandates every head-of-household who isn't mentally ill or a felon own and maintain a gun and ammo (with exemptions for conscientious objectors)."

Gregory, a Republican "who campaigned heavily on the Second Amendment and limited government power, filed four gun bills at the Capitol that would sweep away any restrictions on carrying firearms in Georgia -- including on college campuses and in churches. "House Bills 26, 27, 28 and 29 would declare that 'evil resides in the heart of the individual, not in material objects,' and would also bar the governor from suspending gun sales during an emergency." The package of bills "would end all restrictions on where concealed weapons can be carried. Those restrictions include churches, bars and most government buildings. College students are allowed to keep guns locked in car trunks but cannot carry them into classrooms or dormitories."

Although not all of the bills passed, yet what is important is that here is an elected official that is not afraid to stand up against the tidal wave of anti-gun liberals, and is standing up for the citizens of Georgia and the all our rights under the 2nd amendment. US Precision Defense applauds Georgia State Rep. Charles Gregory.

Georgia, The most pro-gun city in the United States is arguably Kennesaw Georgia, it is a city where gun ownership is mandatory. It’s not the “Wild West” like some people predicted when it passed a mandatory gun ownership law. “The city of Kennesaw was selected by Family Circle magazine as one of the nation's ‘10 best towns for families.’

The award was aimed at identifying the best communities nationally that combine big-city opportunities with suburban charm, a blend of affordable housing, good jobs, top-rated public schools, wide-open spaces, and less stress. The city’s website states that Kennesaw “has the lowest crime rate in Cobb County,” one of the most populace counties in Georgia. In fact, from 1982 through 2009, Kennesaw had been nearly murder free with one murder occurring in 2007.

There were three murders in 2010 committed by the same man in what is described as a “school safety zone,” an area extending 1,000 feet from any school, including adult colleges and technical schools. This means that even though Kennesaw has the most liberal gun laws in the United States, employees at the facility where the murders were committed could not have a gun on the premises. Of course, criminals don’t care about laws; that’s why they’re criminals.

A quote from a newspaper article in Georgia: “Unfortunately experience with actual ‘school safety zones’ in Georgia has proven that the ‘school safety zone’ law approach does not stop violent armed crime, as it disarms only the potential victims of an attack.  Criminals seeking to rob, rape, and murder ignore the ‘school safety zone’ as merely one more law they are breaking.”

In 1982, Kennesaw was a city of about 5,000, "a rural population of Southern conservatives, strong Second Amendment advocates," city spokeswoman Pam Davis says. The city enacted the measure in response to a law passed in Morton Grove, Ill., that outlawed gun ownership. The crime rate, not that high to begin with, plummeted after the law was enacted by 89%, compared with a 10% drop statewide, according to published accounts there were 11 burglaries per 1,000 residents before the law, 2.7 after. Despite slight fluctuations, crime "is significantly lower" than similar-sized Georgia cities. Proof that an armed society is a polite society. The numbers says it all, For more on 2nd amendment rights visit our members section of our website, US Precision Defense.
