Vernon Jones to Introduce Bill Making Attacks on Trump Supporters Hate Crimes

Rep. Vernon Jones tweeted last week:

I’ve watched countless videos of Trump supporters getting attacked in the streets simply due to their support of @realDonaldTrump.

Let’s call this what this is: a hate crime. And as we return to the legislature next week, I’ll be introducing legislation that’ll make it such.

Jones added:

I urge @GovKemp, @GeoffDuncanGA, and Speaker Ralson to support this legislation as we work to put an end to political violence in our great state and provide a blueprint for the rest of the nation to do so as well.

Georgia House BIll 1120 will strengthen the Hate Crime!

Here are some of the responses on Twitter.
