TERRELL CO., GA (WALB) -

Folks in Terrell County want to make a difference and stop the violence. 

On Thursday members of the community, including some high school students, met to discuss gun laws. 

Pataula District Attorney Craig Earnest spoke about how Georgia laws have changed over the years. 

Earnest reminded folks to leave their guns at home when the go vote and discussed other places where weapons are restricted.

NAACP President Ezekiel Holley is the Stop the Violence Coordinator.

"There's not a whole lot of killing in Terrell county but we are not exempt from some of the atrocity that is going on in other cities and other towns," said Holley. 

The stop the violence group meets the third Thursday of every month at the Terrell County government center. 

Anyone is invited to attend.
