Angered by Georgia’s pending expansion of concealed carry laws within state lines, liberal radio host Mike Malloy said he’d like to invite an NRA board member to come meet him, then shoot the board member and claim “Stand Your Ground” in defense.
The Georgia bill–the Safe Carry Protection Act–has passed the state House and Senate but still awaits the governor’s signature. It would expand concealed carry into schools, bars, churches, and the portions of airports that are outside the security parameter.
According to Newbusters, Malloy’s reaction to the bill’s passage was:
[The] organization founded by Gabrielle Giffords…the former Arizona Congresswoman…who was critically wounded in a mass shooting in 2011, she calls it “the most extreme gun bill in America.” The NRA, which they’re behind this of course, they want guns everywhere….I would like to invite one of the NRA board members, and I’ll be armed, let’s just get this over with, OK? Come on down to Georgia and I’ll be packing heat and you be packing heat or whether you want to or not, I don’t give a damn, it’s up to you. And you come, meet me someplace, and all of sudden, see, we have stand your ground here, and all of a sudden I’m going to feel real…threatened by you! And I will shoot you! If I feel threatened. The law says I can. Ha ha ha ha ha, Ha ha ha ha ha!
