New York desperately needs legislation like the Safe Carry Protection Act signed into law last month in Georgia.  It dramatically increased the legal ability of people to defend themselves in publicly accessible places.  It repealed the ban on carrying in most government buildings, bars, airports (excluding terminals), etc.  It allows school districts to authorize personnel to carry in schools.

The only down side is that it stops short of extending the Bill of Rights onto college campuses.  Of course, this leaves us the opportunity to one-up them.  (I know it will never be signed by Emperor Cuomo and we will not have a veto proof majority in either legislative house — let alone both — anytime soon, but we can still strive for greatness and take what gains we can get.)
