Georgia: NRA-Backed Bill Assigned to House Committee

Thursday, March 7, 2013

NRA-backed Senate Bill 101, that recently passed in the Georgia Senate by an overwhelming 41-10 vote, has been assigned to the House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee.

While a hearing has not been scheduled for SB 101, please contact members of this Committee and respectfully urge them to support this very important pro-gun reform.  Their contact information is provided below.

SB 101 would make the following pro-gun improvements in Georgia:

  • 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.
  • Prohibits the state from creating and maintaining a database of Weapons Carry License holders.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • Preempts a ban on firearms in public housing, as the necessity of self-defense is paramount regardless of where one calls home.
