Georgia House Passes Critical Pro-Gun Reform Legislation!

Please Contact Your State Senator Today!

On January 31, the Georgia House of Representatives passed House Bill 89 with the Bearden amendment by a vote of 111 to 58. This critical NRA-supported legislation to protect our firearm rights now heads back to the Senate for concurrence.

HB89 as passed by the Senate would:

  • allow licensed carry permit holders to possess a firearm in any private motor vehicle, while on any publicly accessible parking lot;
  • prohibit gun dealer entrapment schemes, such as those orchestrated by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg;
  • allow concealed carry permit holders to carry in State Parks; and
  • create a strict time limit for various stages of the concealed carry license application process.

Today’s action in the House makes the additional improvements to the bill to include:

  • further allowing concealed carry permit holders to carry in recreational areas, wildlife management areas, and public transportation;
  • allowing concealed carry permit holders to carry in restaurants; and
  • creating a stricter time line for various stages of the concealed carry license application process.

These are just a few of the positive reforms HB89 with Representative Bearden’s amendment will make to Georgia’s firearm laws.

HB 89 is still under attack by gun control advocates, so it is VITAL that you call your State Senator today and urge him or her to support HB 89.

Help preserve our Second Amendment rights in Georgia by contacting your State Senator today and urge him or her to support and vote “yes” on HB 89. If you need help identifying your State Senator, please click here.
