Brian Kemp’s new “criminal carry” law, which makes it easier for criminals to carry loaded, concealed guns without a permit and its background check, is frustrating law enforcement officers who work to keep Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport safe. FOX 5 Atlanta reports that the dangerous new law is preventing law enforcement officers from detaining individuals found to have a firearm in carry-on luggage, confiscating weapons, or issuing fines.
Kemp’s extreme “criminal carry” law has caused concerns from law enforcement officers and mayors across the state, and is opposed by 70% of Georgians. States that have passed similar laws have seen increases in violent crime.
