Jeff Anderson of Georgia Carry addresses a packed TEA Party meeting last week at Chattahoochee Tech.
When he was 38 years old, Jeff Anderson was nearly robbed in his car in Athens, Ga.
Anderson, who is now a lifetime member of the state gun rights advocacy group, Georgia Carry, told the Pickens County TEA Party last week that he averted the attack by flashing the handgun that had been tucked in his glove box since the early 1990s.
That day, he said, changed his life.
“That night I found Georgia Carry on the Internet when I was looking for Georgia gun laws,” Anderson told the packed house at Chattahoochee Technical College, “because I knew I wasn’t going to be lucky the next time. I was 38 at the time and never voted in my life and wasn’t signed up to vote.
“Georgia Carry encouraged me to get to know my representatives and ask them out to lunch and get these laws changed,” he said.
