Begin Lobbying Now!

This session of the General Assembly has started and hearings on legislation will begin in a couple of weeks or less.  In an effort to let our legislators know what we expect of them this year, we need to begin work now in contacting the members who can help us and get the ball rolling.  It is time to start lobbying NOW!

This is an election year and the majority party, although acutely aware that their offices will be on the line in November of this year, need to be reminded that you, I and other Second Amendment supporters put them in office and they need our support to continue to remain in office.  As always, please remember to be courteous in our contact with them in discussions whether it is face to face or by written word.

As you are aware, we introduced SB 224 last year and we want it to pass this year. SB 224:

  • Would change the definition of a Courthouse to the portion of the building occupied by the superior court and containing rooms in which superior court proceedings are held.
  • Strike churches from the off-limits location
  • Remove misdemeanor​- controlled substance convictions as a disqualifier for a GWL
  • Change the definition of a firearm to exclude antique firearms
  • Allow carry of knives in non-sterile areas of the airport with a GWL
  • Force the sale of confiscated firearms by law enforcement
  • Repeal Code Section 38-2-301
  • Protect private property owners from being sued for allowing firearms in their businesses
Begin Contacting the Lt. Governor, Chairman Jesse Stone and your Senator on the Senate Judiciary Committee:
