Tomorrow, the Georgia Senate will hear and vote on House Bill 859. Sponsored by state Representative Rick Jasperse (R-11), NRA-backed HB 859 seeks to amend restrictions in state law by allowing law-abiding Georgia Weapons License (GWL) holders to carry when they are in or on certain buildings or real property owned by or leased to any public technical school, vocational school, college, university, or other institution of postsecondary education. It is important that you contact your Senator TODAY and urge him or her to support HB 859.
Georgia Weapons License holders do not present a threat to public safety, as they are one of the most law-abiding segments of the population. These individuals should not be prevented from exercising their right to self-defense simply because they choose to seek a college education.
Please contact your state Senator TODAY and urge him or her to support HB 859 when it comes up for a vote tomorrow. You can contact your state Senator by clicking here or the Take Action button above.
