Tomorrow, the Georgia Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on NRA-backed House Bill 1060. Sponsored by state Representative Rick Jasperse (R-11), HB 1060 makes several positive and important changes to Georgia gun laws. Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and urge them to support HB 1060.
This legislation makes several meaningful changes to Georgia gun laws, including:
- Providing licensees of states with reciprocal agreements with Georgia a 90 day grace period to obtain a GWL while continuing to carry legally using their previous states’ license
- Shortening the length of time for a law enforcement agency to provide a background report of an applicant for a GWL from 30 to 10 days
- Prohibiting a probate judge from suspending, extending, delaying, or avoiding the process of the GWL application
- Protecting any firearms instructor who lawfully instructs, educates, or trains a person in the safe, proper, or technical use of a firearm from civil liability for any injuries caused by the failure of such person to use such firearm properly or lawfully
Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and urge them to support HB 1060 when it comes up for a vote.
