Georgia: Gun Ban Advocates Urge Governor to Veto Critical Self-Defense Bill!

Thursday, April 24, 2008

Please Contact Governor Perdue Today!

Earlier this month the Georgia legislature passed House Bill 89 and sent it to Governor Sonny Perdue (R) for his consideration.  This NRA supported measure makes numerous improvements to Georgia’s Right to Carry laws and represents the most comprehensive pro-gun reform measure to pass in nearly 20 years. 

Unfortunately, Governor Perdue has not yet signed HB 89 and gun ban advocates and their anti-gun allies in the business community are urging him to veto the bill.

It is critical that the Governor hears from you and every other gun owner in Georgia.  Let him know you’re counting on him to sign HB 89 into law.

HB 89 will strengthen Georgia’s current laws by: 

  • allowing licensed carry permit holders to possess a firearm in any private motor vehicle, while on any publicly accessible parking lot;   
  • prohibiting gun dealer entrapment schemes, such as those orchestrated by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg;  
  • allowing concealed carry permit holders to carry in State Parks; recreational areas, wildlife management areas, and public transportation; 
  • creating a stricter time limit for various stages of the concealed carry license application process; and allowing concealed carry permit holders to carry in restaurants

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

Governor Perdue needs to hear from you.  Let him know that HB 89 is exactly what law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen want in Georgia.

Help preserve our Second Amendment rights.  Please call Governor Perdue TODAY and respectfully urge him to protect your right to self-defense by signing HB 89 into law.
