Georgia: Constitutional/Permitless Carry Legislation Introduced

House Bill 156, important constitutional/permitless carry legislation, was recently introduced to the Georgia House of Representatives.  This critical legislation would allow any law-abiding individual who can legally possess a firearm to carry a handgun for self-defense in Georgia without having to obtain a permit to do so.  Please contact your state Representative and politely urge them to support HB 156!


HB 156 recognizes a law-abiding adult’s unconditional Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses.  Self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate.  Accordingly, a law-abiding adult’s right to defend himself or herself in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes.  In addition, HB 156 would also keep in place the current permitting system so that individuals who obtain a permit could still enjoy the reciprocity agreements that Georgia has with other states.
