Georgia: Important Campus Carry Legislation Introduced

This week, important campus carry legislation, House Bill 280, was introduced in the Georgia General Assembly. Sponsored by state Representative Mandi Ballinger (R-23), HB 280 seeks to amend restrictions in state law that prohibit law-abiding Georgia Weapons License (GWL) holders from being able to protect themselves on college and university campuses.  Please contact your state Representative and urge them to support HB 280 when it comes up for consideration

HB 280 would allow law-abiding GWL holders to carry when he or she is 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. 

Again, please contact your state Representative and urge them to support HB 280 when it comes up for consideration.  Please continue checking www.NRAILA.org and your email for further updates and action items as legislation progresses through the Georgia General Assembly.
