Georgia: Pro-Gun Reform to be Heard in Committee on Tuesday

Sunday, March 9, 2014

This Tuesday, March 11, House Bill 875 is expected to be heard in the state Senate Judiciary Non-Civil Committee.  As previously reported, HB 875 passed in the Georgia House of Representatives by a 119-56 vote on February 19.  Introduced by state Representative Rick Jasperse (R-11), HB 875 is the most comprehensive pro-gun reform legislation introduced in recent state history and seeks to make many changes to benefit law-abiding gun owners, shooters and sportsmen alike.

Your support and activism is needed now to urge members of the Senate Judiciary Non-Civil Committee to support this bill.  Comprehensive reform is what Georgians need and HB 875 is the right legislation to do it!  Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Non-Civil Committee and urge them to support HB 875.  Contact information for committee members is provided below.
