Georgia: Legislature Adjourned Sine Die

On April 2nd, the Georgia General Assembly adjourned sine die from its 2019 Legislative Session having passed Senate Bill 72 in the last hours of session.  SB 72 now heads to Governor Brian Kemp’s desk to be signed into law.  In addition, anti-gun legislation, Senate Bill 150, was defeated this session when it was tabled.

Senate Bill 72, sponsored by Sen. Tyler Harper (R-7), repeals the prohibition on hunting in wildlife management areas (WMA) and increases the number of deer tags available to each hunter.  Unfortunately, allowing the use of suppressors for hunting on public lands was stricken from the language and failed to be resurrected in conference.  It remains lawful to hunt with suppressors on private lands and your NRA will continue to fight to expand hunting with suppressors to all lands in the future.

NRA-ILA would like to thank Sen. Tyler Harper (R-7) and the other bill sponsors for championing this legislation. 

Senate Bill 150, sponsored by Senator Jen Jordan (D-6), would have expanded the category of individuals who have their Second Amendment rights revoked.  Existing federal law already prohibits domestic violence offenders from possessing firearms.  SB 150 would have gone beyond the scope of existing federal law to cover certain offenses that are not domestic violence or are not violent and prohibit individuals from possessing firearms in the same manner as domestic violence offenders.

Your NRA-ILA will be back at the Capitol for the 2020 session, and in the meantime, please stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates on issues affecting your Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage in the Peach State.
