Yesterday, state Senator Don Balfour (R-9) introduced NRA-backed legislation, Senate Bill 350.  

SB 350 would require local and state police authorities to return seized firearms, not currently being held as evidence in a criminal investigation, to the lawful owner if able.  If the lawful owner is not found or unable to take possession of the firearm, SB 350 would require these agencies to sell these firearms at a public auction or to a licensed firearms dealer.  Current Georgia law allows for these guns to be immediately and wastefully destroyed.  

SB 350 has been assigned to the state Senate Judiciary Committee, but a hearing date has not yet been scheduled.  Please continue to monitor your email and www.NRAILA.org for hearing times and dates on this pro-gun legislation.
