Thanks to your efforts, HB 89 was passed in two landslide votes!

HB 89 is on its way to the Governor to sign.  Beginning July 1, it will no longer be a crime for GCO Members to bear firearms in restaurants that serve alcohol, State Parks (and the buildings thereon), Wildlife Management Areas, and on mass transit. This victory would not have been possible without the diligent efforts and leadership of GCO members Sen. John Douglas and, of course, Rep. Tim Bearden.

After the bill passed, Rep. Tim Bearden stated that your contacts made a difference on Friday when the situation appeared bleak.

You may watch Sen. Chip Rogers field hostile questions during the debate and final vote at the following link.

    Ok. Does this mean I can carry my handgun in my holster in the grocery store? The gas station? On the bus?

    I have a belt holster so my gun is not truly hidden. Is that going to be legal?

    You already can carry in a grocery store and gas station.

    Bus will be legal if the Governor does not Veto the bill.

    It is already legal to open carry.
