Georgia: Bill filed to protect gun rights during an emergency

Monday, February 1, 2010

State Sen. Preston Smith (R Rome) filed Senate Bill 342 today to protect legally carrying citizens' gun rights during a state of emergency. Currently, state law grants extraordinary powers to a Georgia governor to suspend or limit the sale, dispensing or transportation of firearms during an emergency. Sen. Smith's bill would repeal that existing statute to remove a governor's power to limit gun rights during an emergency.
