GERARD R. TUTTLE, CUMMING
It’s time for us to take back our Legislature
Jay Bookman’s column on the new gun law in Georgia exposes the insanity in our midst. Why are we doing this to ourselves? Our elected officials have let us down and succumbed to the demands of fanatics hellbent on imposing their flawed vision on the entire state. Most Georgians should be appalled at the extent to which we have slipped into a Wild West “gunoracy.” Are we really this far into anarchy? The only way out is to remove these self-centered villains who have been elected, and replace them with reasonable community-driven people who aren’t at the beck and call of the NRA or any other fringe group. Georgia is being taken over by extremists, and it’s time we the people did something about it.
