Georgia: NRA-Backed Bill Easily Passes Senate

Monday, March 4, 2013

Today, NRA-backed Senate Bill 101 passed in the Georgia Senate by an overwhelming 41-10 vote.  SB 101 now goes to the state House of Representatives where it will be assigned to a committee for further action.

SB 101, amended in the Senate Judiciary Non-Civil Committee to include further protections for law-abiding gun owners, would make the following pro-gun improvements in Georgia:

  • Repeals the unnecessary and duplicative state-required license for a firearms dealer, ensuring that gun dealers are only required to have a Federal Firearms License (FFL).
  • Enhances the current reciprocity for out-of-state concealed carry permit holders traveling through Georgia and sets legal precedent for other states to follow suit.
  • Preempts a ban on firearms in public housing, as the necessity of self-defense is paramount regardless of where one calls home.
  • Protects the confidentiality of Weapons Carry License holders.  Recently, there have been several instances of anti-gun media outlets publishing the names and addresses of Weapons Carry License holders which jeopardizes the safety and violates the privacy of law-abiding citizens.  SB 101 would ensure this would never happen in Georgia.
  • Prohibits the state from creating and maintaining a database of Weapons Carry License holders.
  • Lowers the age from 21 to 18 for activity duty military, with specific training, to obtain a Weapons Carry License to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense.

Please call AND e-mail your state Representative and respectfully urge him or her to support Senate Bill 101.  For help identifying your state Representative and their contact information, please click here.
