    For Guys in GA, check out HB 615


    For all the fellas that are proud gun owners living in the state of Georgia you will want to take a look at House Bill 615.

    Georgia Gun Owners should look to make this piece of legislation a top priority for their 2009-2010 legislative session agenda. Rep. Tim Bearden (R-68) introduced HB 615 last Friday and it will receive its first reading in the House on Tuesday, March 3rd. HB 615 addresses a number of issues that are of crucial importance to the Gun Owning community of Georgia, including repealing the public gathering law and making the license a true concealed weapons license, rather than a firearms license.

    Below you'll find how Rep. Bearden's bill would accomplish returning many 2nd amendment rights, broken down by section.

    If this is something you can fully support then by all means help by signing the linked petition that will be shared with our Georgia General Assembly when the time of need arrives to help influence their vote of support for our 2nd Amendment rights...

    Continue Reading & Understanding:

    SECTION 1 - This section of the bill addresses the concealed carry law and permits the concealed carry of weapons, rather than just pistols, revolvers, and concealable firearms. Section 1 also makes it legal for those eligible under federal law to possess a firearm in a motor vehicle, which fixes an oversight in the concealed carry statute.

    SECTION 2 - This section repeals the public gathering law and makes it clear that the only places off limits to you in Georgia will be the portion of a building housing courtrooms, jail, or a prison.

    SECTION 3 - This section repeals the requirement of a license to carry a pistol openly, making Georgia like the majority of states, where a license is needed only to conceal the weapon, not merely to carry it.

    SECTION 4 - This section changes the licensing law to provide for the option of a lifetime license or the regular 5 year license. It also changes the issuing authority to the Secretary of State. This section also removes the disqualifier for misdemeanor marijuana convictions and concealed weapons carry offenses.

    SECTION 5 - This section makes it illegal to seize your weapon during a declared emergency.

    SECTION 6 - This section removes the Governor's power to seize your weapon during a time of declared emergency.

    SECTION 7 - This section makes sure that your private information will still be confidential once the licensing moves over to the Secretary of State.

    SECTION 8 - This section makes the act effective the day it is signed, rather than July 1 of the year it is signed.

    SECTION 9 - This section repeals all conflicting laws.

    Exercise your 2nd Amendment Right, buy a gun.

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Rudyard Kipling
