“I hate stating negatives, but I think if you take Georgia as a norm, what you’re going to find is you don’t have restrictions on types of weapons, you don’t have long waiting periods, you don’t have additional carry permits requires,” said Special Agent Kevin O’Keefe, the chief of the ATF’s Violent Crime Intelligence Division. Combine those qualities with Georgia’s access to interstates, and he says you have an idea of why it’s a popular state for gun traffickers. “Why drive an extra six hours to Miami, when you could stop in Georgia if you found someone with ID to buy for you," O'Keefe said.
Of course this deliberately and conveniently IGNORES THE FACT THAT THE WEAPON USED TO KILL THE POLICEMAN WAS STOLEN IN A BURGLARY, thereby making state laws in this case moot. But O'Keefe is one of those firearm haters who is obviously working his own personal agenda using his position, a badge and a gun, not to mention feeding at the public trough while doing so.
