HB 89 Car Carry (rewrite of HB 7)

Timothy Bearden of the 68th has reintroduced his car carry bill as HB 89.  It already has 2 cosponsors.

This bill changes 16-11-126 for those that do not yet have a Georgia Firearms License (but are not prohibited from obtaining one) from having to keep a firearm open to view or in a closed container (like console or glove box) and will allow them to carry a loaded firearm anywhere in the motor vehicle.

Georgia Carry supports this bill as we see no reason why a person who is not disqualified from obtaining a firearms license and is already allowed to carry a firearm in a closed container, should not be able to carry anywhere else in a vehicle.
