GA Positive Alert!! Support HB615
I just got done reading the proposed HB615 which is about to move forward now that the State Senate and House are back in session for the new year.
HB615 does away with restrictions on public gathering carry. Will let you carry in all places except a courthouse, jail, or prison. I did not read any other exceptions (period).
HB615 also reduces the renewal fee for 5 year weapon permit to 15.00 and adds a LIFETIME license for 40.00.
The bill also, and I think this is the best part, does away with the "Only a handgun, revolver, or other pistol" part and allows all weapons, defined as a weapon, no longer firearm only, to be authorized for personal defense while having a legal carry permit in the state.
There are a number of other very positive things in the bill which you can read if you care to.
Now is the time to call the GA state legislators and let them know to support this bill.
