Georgia Senate To Vote On Critical Right-To-Carry Reform Legislation!

Wednesday, January 16, 2008

Tomorrow, January 17, the Georgia Senate will vote on critical NRA-supported legislation to protect our firearm rights.  House Bill 89 has been amended to include the following pro-Second Amendment language:

*allows licensed carry permit holders to possess a firearm in any private motor vehicle, while on any publicly accessible parking lot;

*prohibits gun dealer entrapment schemes, such as those orchestrated by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg;

*allows concealed carry permit holders to carry in State Parks; and

*creates a strict time limit for various stages of the pistol license application process. 


These are just a few of the positive reforms HB 89 will make to Georgia’s firearm laws. 


Unfortunately, gun control advocates are lining up in opposition to this bill.


Help preserve our Second Amendment rights by contacting your State Senator today and urge him or her to support and vote “yes” on HB 89.
