I'm not an open carry guy but I saw this and it's such a good idea that I have to pass it on. Of course it would never fly here, but it's fun to think about.

Members of gun rights organization Georgia Carry spent part of Saturday beautifying Hwy. 34 East and raising awareness of Georgians' rights to keep and bear arms.

Last month, the 4,000-member group adopted a section of state Highway 34 from Bradford Station Drive to East Plantation Drive for regular cleanup under the state's Adopt-a-Highway program.

Saturday was the group's first scheduled cleanup event, and many of the members wore firearms as they picked up litter -- but not because they feared abandoned soda bottles or live snakes.

"We are here to remind people that they have the legal right to keep and bear arms," said Jerry Henry, who helped organize Saturday's effort.
