Georgia dad is suing his daughter’s school over his Second
Amendment right to take a
gun onto campus. Beulah
Elementary School parent Hugh
Myers was told that he would
be placed under arrest if he took a gun on school grounds other than when
picking up or dropping of his daughter. A new Georgia
gun law which took effect
last month permits registered gun owners to carry a gun at schools.
Meyers’ attorney, John Monroe, maintains that the Douglasville dad has every
right to take his legal gun to Beulah Elementary School. The Second Amendment
lawsuit against the school states that the Georgia man often goes onto school
ground to attend his daughter’s educational activities. He wants to exercise
his right to carry a gun to the elementary school in case of a confrontation, as
state law now allows. The attorney said that he believes the Hugh Myers gun
lawsuit is the first of its type in Georgia, but due to the new gun law, he
feels it may not be the last.
Beulah Elementary School principal declined to comment on the gun lawsuit filed
against the school, noting the issue is now an ongoing legal matter. Georgia
Governor Nathan Deal, a Republican, signed the gun bill into law amid
controversy. Gun rights activists gathered with supportive state lawmakers for
the signing and applauded the law as a worthy self-defense and school safety
new Georgia gun law permits individuals with a license to carry a firearm to
take a gun into some government buildings which do not have specific security
guidelines, such as metal detectors and guards. Guns are now allowed inside bars
without restriction by individuals who are not consuming alcohol.
new statute also allows religious leaders to determine whether or not a person
with a gun carry license to take a weapon into a place of worship. School
districts are also free to permit staffers to carry a gun on campus under
Safe Carry Protection Act has been dubbed the “guns everywhere” law by
critics. Second Amendment advocates are quick to note that criminals already
take guns everywhere, and the posting of a “Gun Free Zone” signs simply
makes those inside such a facility nothing more than defenseless targets. The
law applies to Georgia citizens who are licensed to carry and visitors from 28
others states which have firearms reciprocity with the state.
