On Second Thought For Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Sun Trust Park opens with an exhibition game this Friday. The road to a new home for the Atlanta Braves has been a long and expensive one. The estimated cost of the project is now more than $1 billion. We talk about the massive undertaking with GPB senior sports correspondent Jon Nelson. The Atlanta Braves are currently in the basement of MLB standings with only 15 season wins. The team is banking on the move to SunTrust Park in Cobb County to galvanize the fan base. But rising costs for the construction project, along with several money saving cuts to traffic-reducing infrastructure, may only increase the congestion.

‘Campus Carry’ Bill Inches Forward

Legislation that would allow guns on Georgia’s public college and university campuses is one step closer to passage. The “campus carry” bill made it through the state Senate Tuesday with a vote of 32-22 after more than an hour of debate. The bill would allow anyone age 21 and up with a state-issued permit to carry a concealed handgun on university, college, and vocational school campuses across the state. It would bar them from sports facilities, student housing, and preschools. “I’ll boil this down to a very simple question,” said Sen. Bill Heath (R-Bremen), the bill’s Senate sponsor. “Do you believe that law abiding background-checked citizens should be prohibited from providing for their own protection just because they choose to go to a college?” Heath argued that Georgia’s colleges and universities had become increasingly unsafe and went as far as calling out the state Board of Regents, which opposes “campus carry” for failing to provide safe learning environments.
