Katrina Bill Introduced in House

Representative Bobby Franklin, 43rd District, has introduced HB 6, which states emphatically that nobody acting under color of state law may seize, even temporarily, firearms, unless the seizure is pursuant to the investigation of a crime.  The bill grants a right of action in the courts of this state for aggrieved individuals and provides for an award of attorney fees to the prevailing party in any action for the return of a seized firearm in violation of the new law.  The state and its political subdivisions may not avail themselves of the attorney fee provision.

This same sort of bill passed unanimously in Florida last year.  That is, not even one anti-gun politician voted against it.  Georgia can do the same.

 Contact your representative and ask him to support HB 6!
