    Good eveming fellow shooters,

    Apparently we have several RINOs (Republican in name only) in Georgia including our Govervor. Please contact him and let him know that he will not be re-elected if he vetoes this legislation. This shalll not stand in my Georgia.

    I received the following email fron Georgia Gun Owners moments ago:

    SB 396 Facing Possible Veto



    (Atlanta, April 3) -- Capitol insiders say Gov. Sonny Perdue (R-Bonaire) is plotting with prosecutors and suburban compromisers to appease anti-gunners and the Atlanta newspaper by cutting a secret deal to veto SB 396.



    The newspaper reported Mr. Perdue started asking last year that all pro-gun bills be killed to court votes from a growing bloc of suburban women who are afraid of guns.



    When questioned Friday about the fate of SB 396, an aide to the Governor said, "At this point, we can't say whether or not he will sign the bill."



    Anti-gunners who previously called it "a license to murder" did a bizarre flip-flop after the defeat of the Mumford amendment, claiming the bill was "insignificant election-year grandstanding" not worthy of support.



    Party-switcher Rep. Robert Mumford (R-Conyers), a former district attorney, attempted to amend SB 396 in House committee, but failed when he was the only Republican to vote with the anti-gunners.



    Prosecutors are unhappy with expanded "immunity from prosecution" provisions in SB 396, but they've had to work behind the scenes because many are elected from pro-gun districts.



    Observers say the anti-gun flip-flop is intended to give Mr. Perdue cover to veto the bill on the grounds it doesn't do anything.



    Gun owners argue SB 396 is the most important piece of related legislation to pass in years. It has 3 vital provisions:



    1. you have "no duty to retreat" as the victim of a criminal attack;



    2. gives you immunity from prosecution for using deadly force to prevent somebody great bodily harm or a forcible felony;



    3. bars criminals from suing you for damages if you injure them in self-defense.



    Mr. Perdue may be stalling to gauge public reaction. But he can't stall too long--in 40 days the bill becomes law without his signature.

    --

    Action Items



    1. The Governor won't veto the bill if it costs him more than it's worth. You can help him make the right decision. Contact his office and ask him to sign SB 396 without delay.



    E-Mail: governor@gov.state.ga.us



    Phone: 404-656-1776



    Write: Gov. Sonny Perdue, 203 State Capitol, Atlanta, GA 30334



    2. Forward this e-mail to three (3) friends.



    Pre-written message:

    --

    Dear Gov. Perdue:



    I'm mad about newspaper reports you're chasing the votes of suburban women and asked legislators to kill pro-gun bills.



    It looks like you're no different than Democrats in supporting bad gun control laws we already have.



    At least the General Assembly passed SB 396 to strengthen our right to self-defense. Vetoing it would be a big mistake.



    Please sign SB 396 into law without further delay.



    Sincerely, ___________________________



    Everyone have a great day. Please call the Governor ASAP

    Thanks,
    David Kerr

    I'm not going to vote for him again anyway after what he did to the HOPE and closing so many DMV centers.

    Are those the same "suburban women" who keep our economy "growing" with credit cards and home equity debt and endless plans for expensive home improvement with labor furnished by illegal aliens and our energy-dependency intact with tank-like SUVs to carry around their two perfect children? They're afraid of guns, oh yeah. And I'm afraid of what they've done to America.

    Governor Perdue is a case study on how to alienate your voting base.

    I predict he will get about 40 percent of the vote, at the most, in November.

    Before someone shouts "Misogynist!" let me say this: The soccer mom never wanted to be appeased, given free rein. No one, man or woman, should be permitted to indulge one's dark side. Yeah, we went over, and now that we need the heroic spirit again, it's damn hard to come up with, isn't it?

    Sonny need not worry about the votes of the liberals in Atlanta. They aren't going to vote for him no matter what he does. All he will do is create apathy among the Republican base, who then won't show up to vote.

    Wasn't this the governor that a few years back told women to buy a handgun when there was a serial rapist/killer on the loose there. I think it was in GA. :scrutiny:

    Youre thinking of Florida. It was a highly publicized CCW class for women. Rape epidemic stopped almost overnight.

    No this was not about CCW it was about just buying a gun for self defense. I will see if I can find it on google.. I'm almost sure it was him.

    Not even a Southern Democrat

    Sonny Perdue is not a Republican, he ain't even a Southern Democrat, he's of the Kennedy ilk.

    Here's my e-mail to him:


    Dear Gov. Perdue,

    It appears from current newspaper reports that you're chasing the votes of suburban women by considering vetoing SB 396 and asking legislators to kill pro-gun bills. I voted for you thinking you were a worthy candidate in the mold of former Governor Zell Miller. Apparently, even though you claim to be a Republican, you're a Democrat - not of the southern variety, but one who would fit right in with the Clintons, Feinsteins, Schumers, and Kennedys. I hate to think my family members would be forced to retreat before defending themselves in their own homes, lest they be held liable in court. At least the General Assembly passed SB 396 to strengthen our right to self-defense. In consideration of the basic RIGHT to self defense (particularly in one's own home) please sign SB 396 into law without further delay and prove to me that I didn't make a mistake in voting for you.

    Sincerely,

    No, that was not Sonny, and that did not happen in Georgia.

    It looks like the Governor plans to sign the bill after all:

    This is good news for Georgia and for me as well since I may be relocating there next year.

    I think this was the article of interest:
    SB 396
    Governor to Sign Stand Your Ground Bill
    2006-04-12

    Good work activists! Inside sources reported yesterday that Gov. Sonny Perdue (R-Bonaire) will sign SB 396 in a couple of weeks.

    The Governor apparently received a substantial number of calls and e-mails last week in support of the SB 396 Self-Defense bill.

    As late as Fri., the Governor's office remained non-committal.

    After pressure to sign SB 396 increased earlier this week instead of falling off, the Governor decided to throw in the towel.

    Yesterday's unusual advance announcement of a bill signing was intended to limit fallout from reports Mr.Perdue was cooking up a secret deal on SB 396. It looks like he switched recipes after it got too hot in the kitchen.

    In related developments:

    -Ala. Gov. Bob Riley (R-Ashland) signed SB 283, the Alabama Stand Your Ground bill into law last week.

    -Sen. Casey Cagle (R-Gainesville), pro-gun candidate for Lt. Governor, was one of the many people who joined in the campaign, sending a letter to Gov. Perdue asking him to sign SB 396.
