  • Georgians could be seeing more lenient gun laws in the future

    COLUMBUS, GA - A new bill introduced this legislative session aims at amping up your second amendment rights. "I can potentially defend myself and my wife in more places, which I like. I like having the ability to pretty much carry wherever I want just in case," Phillip Huckaby, an instructor at Shooters of Columbus, says. If House Bill 981 passes, it would allow Georgians to carry concealed weapons in places like bars, public schools, college campuses and government buildings. "Gun laws are pretty lenient right now, and with this new legislation they want to make even more areas available...
  • Bill proposes massive overhaul to Georgia gun laws

    Georgians would be allowed to carry concealed weapons in bars, public schools, most government buildings, college campuses and other locations under a sweeping gun bill filed in the House. In addition to banishing many current restrictions, House Bill 981 would prevent police or the National Guard from disarming people during states of emergency, and it would allow citizens to sue if that occurred. Rep. Sean Jerguson, R-Woodstock, one of the bill's co-sponsors, said Thursday that it strikes a balance between the Second Amendment, which guarantees the right to bear arms, and personal property rights. For instance, any church or business,...

    Yesterday, Senate Bill 350 passed unanimously in the state Senate Judiciary Committee, along with an amendment submitted by bill sponsor and state Senator Don Balfour (R-9) that would require law enforcement agencies to begin the process of returning seized firearms within thirty days of a court’s final judgment. SB 350, along with the supported amendment, would mandate municipal, county and state police authorities return all seized firearms, not currently being held as evidence in a criminal investigation, to the lawful owner if able. If the lawful owner is not found or unable to take possession of the firearm, SB 350...

    State Rep. Jason Spencer introduced legislation that will allow residents to carry a concealed firearm without first having to get a permit from the government. Rep. Spencer told Georgia Gun Owners that, “Law-abiding citizens should not have to be fingerprinted and cataloged like common criminals just to be able to defend themselves, their family and their property.” Indeed, violent thugs will not show up at the police station or sheriff’s office to apply for a permit. Yet, law-abiding gun owners are forced to apply for a permit, pay fees that can total more than $100, submit fingerprints, and then wait...

    An administrative law judge in Georgia who held hearings on citizens’ complaints that Barack Obama isn’t eligible to be president and so shouldn’t be on the 2012 presidential ballot in the state failed to follow U.S. Supreme Court precedent, according to one of the attorneys representing clients bringing the complaints. Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp today adopted without elaboration the recommendation from Judge Michael Malihi, who concluded without evidence from Obama that he was born in Hawaii, which makes him native born, which is the same as the “natural born” required by the Constitution of presidents. Appeals of the...

    Georgia's Secretary of State has ruled that President Barack Obama is eligible to be listed on the March Democratic primary ballot. Brian Kemp on Tuesday rejected a challenge that said Obama does not meet the State of Georgia's eligibility requirements. The challenge argued that Obama, whose birth certificate states that he was born in Hawaii in 1961, is not a "natural born citizen." A state judge rejected that challenge last week, and Kemp on Tuesday upheld the judge's decision.

    President Obama's name should appear on Georgia's 2012 presidential ballot, in the official opinion of Judge Michael Malihi of Georgia's Office of State Administrative Hearings (OSAH), issued on February 3. Judge Malihi's decision is the result of hearings held January 26 on three separate actions brought by several Georgia residents. Under Georgia law, Secretary of State Brian Kemp had referred the challenges, filed last November, to the OSAH for a recommendation. Ordinarily, the Court would enter a default order against the party that fails to participate in any stage of a proceeding...Nonetheless, despite the Defendant's failure to appear, Plaintiffs asked...
  • Bill on Returning Stolen Firearms To Be Heard Monday(GA)

    Atlanta Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 4 February, 2012 | Ed Stone
    The Senate Judiciary Committee is hearing a bill Monday that would require the police to return stolen firearms to their rightful owner once they are no longer needed for "evidentiary purposes." SB 350 would also require the police to auction off contraband firearms every six months rather than destroy them, and would prohibit agency employees from bidding on the firearms or profiting from their sale. Before auctioning any firearms, however, the police in custody of the weapon would be required to use their "best efforts" to locate the rightful owner. This bill appears to be a genuine effort to make...

    Judge: Obama eligible to be Georgia candidate A state administrative law judge on Friday flatly rejected challenges seeking to keep President Barack Obama from being a candidate in next month's Georgia primary. In a 10-page order, Judge Michael Malihi dismissed one challenge that contended Obama has maintained a Hawaiian birth certificate that is a computer-generated forgery, has a fraudulent Social Security number and invalid U.S. identification papers. He also turned back another that claimed the president is not a natural born citizen. Last month, Malihi heard testimony and took evidence in a hearing boycotted by Obama's lawyer. With regard to...

  • Van Irion's Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law Submitted

    Nicely done. I hope the Judge has the courage to agree with it. Also William Wagener has uploaded his video of the hearing. It is much better than art2pac video. The sound is good with closeups of the witnesses. It has 6 parts. Mark Hatfield's presentation was cutoff from part 2 but other than that, its better. Hopefully he will upload part 2b to fix that.

  • Obama's Attorney Files Motion To Quash Subpoenas In The Georgia Access Ballot Challenge

    Obama's motion to quash: "The sovereignty of the State of Georgia does not extend beyond the limits of the State. O.C.G.A. § 50-2-20. Since the sovereignty of the State does not extend beyond its territorial limits, an administrative subpoena has no effect. Thus, OSAH rules specify that subpoenas must be served within the State of Georgia. Ga. Comp. R. & Regs. r. 616-1-2-.19(5) (“A subpoena may be served at any place within Georgia….”)." "Plaintiff‟s attorney violates two rules of practice with these subpoenas. First, they must be served within the State of Georgia. Ga. Comp. R. & Regs. r. 616-1-2-.19(5)...

    Barack Obama has outlined a defense strategy for a multitude of state-level challenges to his candidacy on the 2012 presidential ballot in a Georgia case that is scheduled to come before a judge later this month – simply explain that states have nothing to do with the eligibility of presidential candidates. “Presidential electors and Congress, not the state of Georgia, hold the constitutional responsibility for determining the qualifications of presidential candidates,” Obama’s lawyer argues in a motion to quash a subpoena for him to appear at the hearings Jan. 26. “The election of President Obama by the presidential electors, confirmed...

    Update: Dean Haskins at Obama Release Your Records is saying that the Judge is entering a default judgement against Obama because he did not appear. This could mean that Obama might not appear on Georgia’s ballot, although the Obama administration will certainly appeal. Today was an important day in the fight for truth. Despite Obama’s no-show, today’s court proceedings could have a great affect on the eligibility movement as a whole. A blow by blow of the entire court proceeding was made by Craig Andersen of the The National Patriot. His article is found below. We will be updating this...

    An attorney who presented evidence to a Georgia judge last week on Barack Obama’s eligibility for the state’s 2012 presidential ballot believes she now has a right to demand to see his original Hawaii documents. Obama last April released what he said was a copy of his original Hawaii birth documentation, but a number of imaging, document and computer experts contend it is a fraud. The original birth documentation could undermine Obama’s claim to be a “natural-born citizen,” as the Constitution requires. Many of his critics, however, say the birth documentation doesn’t matter, because Obama’s father never was a U.S....

    A Northlake liquor store manager scared away an armed robber Jan. 20 by grabbing his own handgun and firing at the intruder, DeKalb County police said. The robber walked into Northlake Liquor at 3900 Lavista Rd. and pointed a black handgun at the 60-year-old manager between 9:45 p.m. and 10:40 p.m., the police report said. "This is a holdup," the intruder said. The manager reached under the counter, grabbed a 9mm Beretta and fired at the suspect. The suspect ran out of the store empty-handed, heading west past the Wendy's to an unknown location. The suspect was described as a...

    ATLANTA -- A Georgia judge has heard arguments and is considering a complaint that seeks to keep President Barack Obama off the state's ballot. Obama's local attorney Michael Jablonski boycotted Thursday's hearing in Atlanta. Plaintiff's attorneys urged Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi to hold him and the president in contempt. The judge didn't set a timeline for a ruling. About 100 people listened to hours of arguments from the attorneys, who included state Rep. Mark Hatfield, a Waycross Republican. The complaint contends Obama isn't a natural-born U.S. citizen and therefore should not be on the state's ballot. Similar complaints have...
