DUI Golf Carting

Tonight on WSB there was a story on the dangers of DUI Carting. The Lt.(since we got rid of the Capt's) said that 18% of all PTC DUI's were golf cart. He also went on to tell the old story about how dangerous golf carts are and that there have actually been deaths (implying they were DUI related or there have been many). I know of ONE death in all the history of PTC related to a golf cart. It was not DUI related. Are there any numbers of how many DUI cart crashes there have been? You are more likely to be hit by a teenager rounding the corner @ MikyD's & Chix, than being hit by a drunk golfer coming over the bridge @ the Baptist church. For many million miles driven over the 100 miles of paths x Years = you get my point. And how does the PTCPD spend its time and resources?

15% of DUI's in 2012. Well, yes, I would assume the arrest percentage would go up if the PD actually patrols more frequently now. What amount of patrol time is devoted to path patrol in 2012 vs the few years before that?

I agree, bladderq, one death and had nothing to do with DUI.

100 miles of paths? I don't remember 10 new miles being built, do you?

Gun control freaks - let me ask a question

I saw on Drudge that over 70million background checks have been conducted on people buying guns - and that's just since Obama has been President. They said under Bush's 8 years there was 30 million. So, that's 100million people in 13 years buying a gun. I don't think an individual buying multiple guns has multiple background checks, but even discounting that - that's a lot of guns bought in the last 13 years (yes, one is mine/ours).

With a population of 300million, that's about 100million households, so it seems as if we are pretty close to every household having a gun already, So, my question is this - If there are 100million guns out there - plus the millions purchased before 2001, aren't we a bit late to be regulating gun sales and magazine types and things like that? You think anybody who has an AR15 that was legal last year and might be illegal this year is going to turn it in? If anything, a ban on a specific gun simply makes it more valuable.

If all this gun control hysteria is about school shootings, have some of the 100million bring their gun to school and be there as a first responder - and possibly a deterrent. Makes much more sense that a gun-free zone that a crazy shooter picks out because he has no opposition.

Big gun show at Cobb Civic Center this weekend. Get one now before the stupid politicians disarm us or buy up all our ammo. No one in Germany had guns in the 1930's except the military and police, both controlled by the Socialist Democratic Party. Don't believe me? - what do you think the translation of NAZI is?. Look how that worked out.

Many are concerned also about the children killed in urban areas. Illegal guns are rampant in urban areas. (Residents aware of gun- owners who may not be legally registered to own a gun - reporting this 'owner' may give law enforcement a tool since the owner will not be on the registered list.). Gun trafficking needs to be curbed. If 'registration. ' gives law enforcement a tool to search 'gang' residents - go for it! There are too many parents in our country who have lost children to 'guns'. We still have our constitutional 'right' to bear arms. This right protects us from the criminals and hate groups that challenge our peace and freedom.

What 'law enforecement' validates is that gang members (criminals) in our country do not register their weapons (Depending on illegal trafficking in order to obtain their street weapons) This gives law enforcement a tool to approach and arrest. (Maybe) I'm sure you understood that - just using tongue in cheek humor I guess.

Mudcat- just to clarify

if you purchase multiple guns at one time, you only have to do one background check. But if you buy one gun and then come in the next day to buy another, its a seperate background check. Fortunately the FBI instant background check service is free, it just takes a few minutes so its not like it cost more money or something. Some states (like colorado) have initiated a separate state level check in addition to the free FBI one that DOES cost money, but that doesn't exist in Ga. However there is an exception to this here. If you have a concealed carry permit like I do, you are allowed to skip the check by simply showing your CCW permit.

Hitler compared to Obama

The Nazi gun control thing is very real and very true, but I also heard from a friend in LA that he is working on a documentary film that compares Hitler's actions to Obama's. They had big trouble with funding for the obvious reasons, but that has been overcome and the film will be out next year.

I seriously doubt Obama's ability to totally hypnotize a nation as Hitler did, but it is worth thinking about and if needed - stop it. He is ratcheting up the unemployed at a considerable rate, but even they know that when his reign ends and Hilary or Rubio takes over there will be jobs outside of government. That's why term limits are good.

Your gun figures are flawed - most people have 6 or 7 defensive weapons - as do I.

barrack hussein obama hates Americans that are not in lockstep with each and every one of his stupid ideas.

OBAMA called them his enemies. Now he and his minions wonder why no one wants to work with him? C'mon DM. You can do better than that.
You blame congress for everything - what about obama? He's responsible for the division that exists today.

Obama tells Latinos to ‘punish our enemies,’ the GOP

He refered to the private sector as "the enemy". If America is his enemy, what does he expect?

Guns

According to a University of Chicago National Opinion Research Center study in 2011:

The number of U.S. households with guns declined from 50% in 1973 to 32% in 2010.

The number of gun owners has declined by 10%.

Apparently those who own guns are buying more and more guns.

Hey! How about a gun ordinance for Peachtree City?

Or maybe the entire county? Not that any of the crimes listed above would be prevented by a gun ordinance, but it would be good to have one anyway. Have to wait for the new mayor in PTC to provide leadership on this, but maybe Brown can rustle up his followers (and Oddo) and get us a county-wide gun ordinance before that. To be clear, I mean a gun ordinance like Nelson passed last night - one that requires everyone to own a gun, one that makes the thugs who carjack and break into houses think twice and go somewhere else. How about some leadership on that?

I would support such an ordinance. I believe it would fail 4-1 or 3-2, depending at where Don falls on the issue. I have had multiple conversations with citizens, but my demographic (Honorably Discharged Marine and shooting enthusiast) might somewhat skew the way people approach me. They know I am open to such an ordinance, so they approach me on it.

I almost always wear a jacket when representing the city.

Mandatory Gun Laws = Purely Symbolic/Waste of Time

These mandatory gun laws are a waste of time and not enforceable. You can't make anyone own a gun. For example, as was the Kennesaw ordinance, the City of Nelson ordinance, approved unanimously by their City Council, is symbolic because there is no penalty for violating it. And The Nelson ordinance exempts convicted felons, residents with physical and mental disabilities and those who do not believe in owning firearms. So what's the point, George? Those who want to own a gun can do so already and those that don't...well, don't! How about focusing your time and energy on something constructive like jobs, reducing taxes and other things that actually mean something?

Starting in 2014, most people will be required to have health insurance or pay a penalty if they don't. Coverage may include employer-provided insurance, coverage someone buys on their own, or Medicaid. But let's save that discussion for another day and another thread. I'm still waiting on George to produce his legitimate study that "mandatory" gun laws that really are not mandatory causes a drop in crime. :-)

Exactly Spyglass!

You can't quantify it....there is no direct cause and effect relationship between these silly mandatory (or non-mandatory as they turn out to be) gun laws and a reduction in crime statistics. That's why I challenged George to produce a legitimate research study done that supports his contention that these laws do in fact reduce crime. People commit (or don't commit) crimes for a lot of different reasons. And George needs to recheck the crime stats for Kennesaw. While the city violent crime and property crime rates for Kennesaw in 2010 were lower than the national rates, Kennesaw crime statistics report an overall upward trend in crime based on data from 11 years with violent crime increasing and property crime increasing. Based on this trend, the crime rate in Kennesaw for 2013 is expected to be higher than in 2010.

I am not ignoring you

To whet your appetite, I found this:

The city's population grew from around 5,000 in 1980 to 13,000 by 1996 (latest available estimate). Yet there have been only three murders: two with knives (1984 and 1987) and one with a firearm (1997). After the law went into effect in 1982, crime against persons plummeted 74 percent compared to 1981, and fell another 45 percent in 1983 compared to 1982.

and this http://www.cityrating.com/crime-statistics/georgia/kennesaw.html#.UV3CtK...

Ill do some more research and post tomorrow, when I am not as busy.

Lastly, your facts also bear scrutiny- Are the increases you cite less than the surrounding area? Also, the population has skyrocketed- you need to make a comparison of violent crimes per x amount of residents, not on the number of crimes.

Not My Point George

George, you and I can Google and post crime stats all day long but you and I both know crime stats go up or down for a lot of different reasons. What I challenged you to do is produce a legitimate study that says Kennesaw's or any cities drop in crime is a direct result of these silly, toothless and unenforceable "mandatory" gun laws. The Kennesaw Police Department admit they have made no attempt to enforce that law and Nelson Councilman Jackie Jarrett told the Associated Press that most people in town already own guns and the ordinance was intended mostly as a “statement” on gun rights. I suspect that's the real reason behind these laws.

What happened in Clayton County is a matter of historical record. Those who could moved 'up' . Some ran, some stayed. Pretty much the same 'housing ' pattern as found throughout our country.
Fayetteville and Peachtree City are pretty much identified as 'middle class' communities - withDelta being one of the prime employers. Did Clayton County have this identity? I know our realtor wouldn't even take us to Clayton in 2002. There are some beautiful homes there (Spivey). It appears that apartments (low rent) and Sec. 8 changes a community.

Now, your messiah obama is the one that doesn't want dying people to get medical care. Just look at the mess that his sequester created.

Cancer clinics are turning away thousands of Medicare patients. Blame the sequester.

For shame. Democrats want sick people to die!!

An answer

The law in Nelson allows those people that object to owning weapons to opt out. Also, people with known mental illness, under the law, are not allow to own a weapon. The Nelson law is modeled after the Kenesaw City, Georgia law.

Well Moms, you have the right to have a sign in your front yard

The sign says "I am opposed to having guns in my house - it is my Constitutional Right"

Or, you can get a gun and not tell anyone.
Or you could just do nothing and rely upon the mercy of the thugs.

3 good choices.

I assume you have picked door #3. Hope that works out for you.

I've carried for probably more years than you've graced this earth. Couldn't answer the question - eh?

No Fat Husband. That is a step too far.

Even though that has been the law in my house for 30 years, concealed carry is not for everyone. I can name some bloggers and politicians (and so can you) that I would not trust with a handgun. But a law requiring 1 gun per house - a shotgun being the preferred weapon, along with training and safety classes would be just right. People who live on 3 acres or more should probably have an AR with laser sighting. City could print and distribute some stickers like the alarm companies have declaring that each house is protected by an armed citizen. And billboards on the main roads stating that Peachtree City has a neighborhood militia. That's all reasonable. But I think concealed carry is over the line.
