This week, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hear House Bill 1358, the constitutional carry bill the House previously passed. Please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT HB 1358.
House Bill 1358 allows a law-abiding adult who is legally allowed to carry a concealed firearm, to do so without first having to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have the right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. Additionally, this legislation maintains the existing concealed handgun license system, so citizens who still wish to obtain a permit may do so.
Currently, there are 24 states that already have constitutional carry. Of those, Alabama, Ohio, and Indiana joined that list just this year. Governor Brian Kemp has stated his support for constitutional carry, so the General Assembly just has to send a bill to his desk. HB 1358 is Georgia’s chance to ensure that half of the 50 states have constitutional carry.
Again, please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT HB 1358.
