Welcome back to the David Dorer Show! This week my panelists and I discuss recent proposed legislation in the Georgia General Assembly.
My panelists this week include John Buckner (@JGigBuckner), an attorney with the Democratic Party of Georgia, T-Bone (@tboneafterkdark), a Middle-Georgia criminal defense attorney, and Anderson Lipscomb (@alipscomb25), a legislative strategist with the ACLU.

Here’s some additional reading on the issues we cover, so you can stay informed:
First, the General Assembly passed a demand for a Constitutional Convention to amend the Federal Constitution and call for a balanced budget and term limits for Federal congressional representatives, commonly referred to as the “Liberty Amendments.”
Second, The Georgia House passed a bill permitting the carrying of a concealed handgun at churches, schools, bars, and other public places.
Third, a bill that died in the House, but is still quite alive in the Georgia Senate, permitting the discrimination of private business owners against patrons on the basis of religious objections that is being used as a basis to deny services to homosexuals.
Fourth, we discuss the wide expansion of private probation for Georgia’s convicted criminal defendants.
And finally, we review the liberal authority of the EPD director to cut off South-Georgia farmers’ rights to the Flint River.
