On February 19th, a sub-committee of the House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee voted to approve House Bill 787 and pass it on to the full committee. It is a critical bill to expand the ability of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves and their families both within Georgia and in other states. Please contact committee members and ask them to support HB 787.
House Bill 787, sponsored by Representative Mandi Ballinger (R-23), grants universal recognition to concealed carry permits held by non-Georgia residents issued by any other state. It also directs the Georgia Attorney General to enter into formal reciprocity agreements with any state that requires a formal agreement to recognize a Georgia Weapons Carry License. This reform recognizes that Georgia residents traveling to other states and visitors to Georgia should not be left defenseless simply by crossing a state line.
Again, please contact committee members and ask them to support HB 787.
