Today, ahead of Brian Kemp signing his “criminal carry” bill into law, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that seven Georgia mayors penned a letter to Kemp urging him to take into consideration the concerns of local Georgia leaders, law enforcement and the 70% of Georgians who believe that this legislation will make their communities less safe and their streets more dangerous.
The letter was signed by Mayor Kevin Brown of Buena Vista, Mayor Joyce Denson of Toomsboro, Mayor John Ernst of Brookhaven, Mayor Kelly Girtz of Athens-Clarke County, Mayor Bobby Jenkins of Cuthbert, Mayor Van Johnson of Savannah, and Mayor Vince Williams of Union City.
