Guns are still illegal at the University of Georgia, but Tasers are A-OK!
House Bill 792—sometimes referred to as “campus carry lite”—is among a number of new laws that took effect July 1. The law allows people 18 and older to carry electroshock weapons such as Tasers and stun guns on college campuses and use them—but only for self-defense.
The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Buzz Brockway (R-Lawrenceville) has a few slightly tongue-in-cheek tips for avoiding getting yourself tased: “obey the law,” “don’t be a jerk” and “don’t get drunk or high.”
I’m confident the UGA student body will heed that advice.
