Georgia: Pro-Gun Omnibus Bill to Be Heard this Week

This week, House Bill 292, the omnibus bill which would make many pro-gun reforms for Georgia gun owners, will be considered by the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Wednesday, March 15, and the full Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, March 16.  Please contact the Senate Judiciary Committee and urge them to SUPPORT HB 292!

Sponsored by state Representative Rick Jasperse (R-11), HB 292 would make several positive and important 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
  • ​Making a code change regarding permit reciprocity.

Again, please contact the Senate Judiciary Committee and urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 292.
