    An editorial from Doomberg Businessweek, uh, I mean Bloomberg Businessweek news regarding Georgia;s “guns everwhere” law:
    http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-03-25/how-to-understand-georgias-guns-everywhere-law-four-blunt-points?campaign_id=yhoo

    The last paragraph:
    A couple of thoughts here. Is there any doubt of the liberal media bias? This story was not "labeled" as an editorial, but that's exactly what it is. An editorial calling itself news.

    And just as the title says, are these idiots finally getting the hint? We've been saying for quite a long time to enforce the laws already on the books, not enact new ones.

    Oh and some of the comments below the story are priceless and give hope.

    At least they are starting to get the point and realize that the majority doesn't share their views.

    What do you mean? I do not understand the "head fake" term?

    Except the premise the article is based on, that our violent crime rate is "more lethal" is bunk/BS/hogwash/horsepucky.

    Even the U.N. (you know, those folks that want your guns) sourced data shows we are nowhere near the top in murder as a result of violent crime.

    The Bloomies have lost, or are losing their battle on EVERY front except in the population centers of the N.E.
    And they are about to have a fight on their hands even there, where things have the potential to get REAL UGLY real fast. And they know it.
    So, for the moment they have decided to settle for background checks, as defacto registration schemes.
    Yes, it's a head fake, IMO.

    You need to have a clue in order to take a hint... They're clueless, therefore it's HIGHLY doubtful they're taking any sort of hint.
