Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) is calling for a repeal of campus carry and limits plus restrictions on public carry.

Abrams says campus carry needs to be repealed because “no parent should have to worry about guns in their child’s dorm room,” yet at the same time she says she stands for “responsible gun ownership.”

Nevermind that the people legally carrying firearms for self-defense on Georgia campuses are licensed concealed carry permit holders–and permit holders are among the most law-abiding of law-abiding citizens.  They are responsible to say the least. Yet Abrams wants them disarmed while on public campuses.

She tweeted:

She is also pushing restrictions on concealed carry off-campus. She tweeted, “No one believes every person should have access or that every place should be open to carry. I know the importance of gun safety – and that the right to bear arms does not conflict with common-sense gun laws.”

To date, Abrams has not defined what she means “common-sense gun laws” nor as she outlined which such laws she supports.
