Senate Bill 43, sponsored by Senator Chip Rogers (R-21), passed the Senate Judiciary Committee by a vote of 8-2, and will now head to the Senate floor. SB 43, “Employee Rights,” would allow employees to lawfully carry and possess firearms in locked motor vehicles on their employer’s property.
Please call your State Senator at (404) 656-5030, and urge him or her to vote “Yes” on SB 43.
House Bill 89, sponsored by Timothy Bearden (R-68), would enhance the right of self-defense by allowing an individual who qualifies for a license to carry a handgun, even if the individual does not have such a license, and to transport a loaded firearm in any private passenger motor vehicle. HB 89 has passed favorably out of the House Committee.
