Georgia: Today’s Hearing on Senate Bill 280 Postponed

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Due to inclement weather, today’s Senate Judiciary Non-Civil Committee hearing on Senate Bill 280 has been cancelled and will be rescheduled for a future date.  In the meantime, please continue contacting members of this Senate committee and urge them to OPPOSE SB 280 as a misguided infringement on your right to self-defense when it comes before them.  Tell them that victims should have the protection of the law, NOT criminals!

SB 280, sponsored by anti-gun state Senator Vincent Fort (D-39), would repeal an integral portion of Georgia’s self-defense law that allows an individual to defend themselves without a duty to retreat, putting your fundamental right to self-defense in jeopardy.  SB 280 is dangerous legislation that stands to empower and benefit violent criminals in their attacks on law-abiding citizens.  Law-abiding citizens should not fear criminal prosecution when they stand their ground and defend themselves without retreating from any place they have a legal right to be.  This type of senseless and politically motivated legislation puts the rights of the criminal before the rights of a potential victim, and must be stopped.

Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated as details about the rescheduled Senate committee hearing become known.  Contact information for members of the Senate Judiciary Non-Civil Committee is provided below.
