Georgia: NRA-Supported Omnibus Bill Passes Senate

Today, the Georgia Senate passed NRA-supported House Bill 1060 with a 37-18 vote.  Sponsored by state Representative Rick Jasperse (R-11), HB 1060 makes several positive and important changes to Georgia gun laws.  HB 1060 will now go back to the Georgia House of Representatives for concurrence.  Please contact your state Representative and politely urge them to concur with the amended Senate version of 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
  • 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

Once again, please contact your state Representative and politely urge them to concur with the amended Senate version of HB 1060!
