Georgia: Governor Perdue Signs Monumental Right-to-Carry Reform Bill!

Wednesday, May 14, 2008

Please Thank Governor Perdue Today!

Today, Wednesday, May 14, Governor Sonny Perdue (R) signed House Bill 89 into law. This NRA supported measure makes numerous improvements to Georgia’s Right-to-Carry laws and represents the most comprehensive pro-gun reform measure to be enacted in nearly 20 years.

This critical Right-to-Carry Reform legislation 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.

Thank you to all of the NRA members who answered the call in support of HB89.  Your action played a pivotal role in the enactment of this much-needed legislation.  Without you this victory would have been impossible.

Please contact the Governor TODAY and thank him for protecting our right to self-defense by signing HB89.  Governor Perdue can be reached by phone at (404) 656-1776 or via email by clicking here.
