The current bill contains government buildings, bar carry, knives and other weapons preemption, eliminating the fingerprint requirement on renewals and the resale of firearms used in crimes when the legal owner cannot be found.  The substitute bill is available here as well as linked on our Current Bills page.

Please remember to be firm but polite when urging your elected officials to support passage of SB98 to restore a portion of our second amendment rights.  Be sure to note that you are a member of GeorgiaCarry.Org.

You should begin to contact your representatives and senators requesting they support SB98.  If you are not aware of whom your elected officials are, please go to the GCO Legislative Info page here and follow the instructions on the page.

If possible, we will keep you updated when the bill moves from the Rules Committee to the floor, etc. so we can contact our elected officials.  However, please remember at this time of the session, bills move with lightning speed at times so don’t delay in contacting your elected officials.

Again, thanks for an outstanding job of contacting the Speaker and the House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee.  Without your support, we would not have a gun bill in Georgia this year.  You, our members are what make this organization’s efforts successful!
