Recently, House Bill 292 was introduced in the Georgia House of Representatives. Sponsored by state Representative Rick Jasperse (R-11), HB 292 makes several positive and important changes to Georgia gun laws. Please contact your state Representative and urge them to support HB 292.
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 approving a 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
In addition, your NRA-ILA has learned that HB 292 could be amended to support a code change regarding permit reciprocity, specifically with the state of Virginia. This would allow Virginia concealed handgun permit holders to enjoy reciprocity with Georgia.
