Georgia: Signature Deadline Looms, Urge Governor Deal to Sign Campus Carry Legislation!

Your NRA-ILA is working diligently in Georgia to protect the Second Amendment rights and right to self-defense of law-abiding gun owners.  Next week, important pro-self-defense legislation has a deadline for consideration by Governor Nathan Deal.  House Bill 859 and House Bill 1060 await Governor Deal’s signature and he is being pressured by anti-gun New York City billionaires and University bureaucrats to veto these important pro-gun reforms.  Please continue to contact Governor Deal and politely urge him to protect your fundamental right to self-defense by signing House Bill 859 and House bill 1060 into law.


HB 1060 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

Sponsored by state Representative Rick Jasperse (R-11), 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. 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.

Again, please contact Governor Nathan Deal and urge him to sign House Bill 859 and House Bill 1060 into law.
