Another reason I don't call Georgia "my" state

So there are all these things Georgia legislators CAN'T do that would be useful and helpful. Instead, they do this:

Senate OKs concealed guns in eateries, MARTA

Georgians with concealed weapons permits could carry guns on MARTA trains, and into restaurants as long as they don't drink, under a bill that passed the Senate after two rounds of contentious debate Wednesday.

I mean... WTF?

What really ticks me off is that if this action follows those in the past, the pushers of this legislation used "scare tactics" like talking about people being mugged in Downtown Atlanta after going out to eat or messed up on MARTA. Because the city is SCARY so let's get everybody armed.

Ugh.
