Ga. voters back amendment capping income tax rate

ATLANTA (AP) Voters have adopted an amendment freezing Georgia’s top marginal income tax rate.

A constitutional amendment prohibiting the Legislature from raising income taxes above the current top rate of 6 percent was approved in voting Tuesday. It was among three ballot questions Georgia voters were asked to settle in the midterm elections.

A second amendment authorizing state lawmakers to impose additional fines for reckless driving that would fund medical treatment and rehabilitation for people with brain and spinal injuries also passed.

Finally, voters approved a referendum to allow Georgia’s public universities to extend their exemption from property taxes to private companies hired to operate campus dorms.

Episcopal Church in Michigan votes to crack down on gun rights

The Episcopal Church in Michigan which includes the areas of Lansing and Jackson voted to crack down on Second Amendment rights via a resolution at the 180th convention of the Episcopal Diocese.

Specifically, the resolution which passed with a large majority expresses favor for universal background checks for all gun buys and for bans on all sales of decreed semiautomatic weapons and high-impact, high-capacity ammunition and magazines, the Detroit Free Press reported. The resolution also calls to make gun trafficking a federal crime.

We stand for public policies to ban violence and assault weapons, the resolution stated, the Detroit Free Press reported. Access to guns with rapid fire ability and high capacity magazines are a common, deadly ingredient in repeated killings.

The resolution isnt policy, but it could prove influential with policy-makers. The Detroit Free Press reported that the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan was created in 1836 a fully year before the state was even established.

We work to bring Gods peace to the world, said the Rev. Chris Yaw, the rector of St. Davids Episcopal Church in Southfield, the Detroit Free Press reported. Gods kingdom is not of violence its of peace.

But critics say the resolution conflicts with the Constitutions Second Amendment.

Passing an inherently political resolution does absolutely nothing to proclaim the glory of God and bring new people to the pews of churches, said Dennis Lennox, a member of St. Johns Episcopal Church in Detroit, the Detroit Free Press reported. I wish churches would focus on being a house of prayer for all people, instead of becoming extensions of political movements and parties.

Protect Second Amendment

I, like the vast majority of Chambers County residents, believe that our Second Amendment right to bear arms is unalienable and given to us by God, not the government. It is sacred to many of us, and we will fight to protect it.

Today is the day when we need to stand up for this right. Democrat House District 23 candidate Susan Criss wants to restrict these rights and make it harder for law-abiding citizens to own firearms in Chambers County.
