Georgia Governor Announces Support for Constitutional Carry; 2025 NRAAM to be held in Atlanta

Gov. Brian Kemp doubled down on his support for the Second Amendment on Wednesday at an event where he said he’d like to bring constitutional carry to Georgia.

“We shouldn’t have to claw back a civil right, a God-given right to defend ourselves. We shouldn’t have to argue the restrictions placed on government of four simple words ‘shall not be infringed.’ However, people who hate freedom persist, so 21 states have made America safer by passing constitutional carry,” said NRA Vice President Lt. Col. Willes K. Lee. “We’re pleased to stand here with Gov. Kemp today as he announces he will work to bring this protection to Georgia.”

At the event at a gun store outside Atlanta, Kemp also announced that Georgia will welcome the NRA and tens of thousands of its members in 2025 when the Annual Meetings and Exhibits returns to Atlanta.

“The NRA will return to Georgia in 2025 because it’s a great state with tens of thousands of NRA members and supporters. We look forward to celebrating our freedoms here and gathering to strengthen the fight against the anti-gun zealots who wish to leave Americans defenseless.”

Kemp, who spoke at the event along with Former Congressman Bob Barr and other legislators and leaders, emphasized the importance of the Second Amendment amid the current climate of rising crime and defunded police departments.

Constitutional carry has been a priority for the NRA for decades and 21 states have passed NRA-backed constitutional carry bills. In 2022, NRA will work to pass this legislation in Georgia and numerous other states.

“Congratulations, Georgia. Congratulations, Atlanta. Thank you, Gov. Kemp for you and your staff’s assistance,” Lee concluded. “God bless the United States and God bless our NRA members.”
