    Georgia: NRA-Backed Bill Easily Passes Senate
    Today, NRA-backed Senate Bill 101 passed in the Georgia Senate by an overwhelming 41-10 vote. SB 101 now goes to the state House of Representatives where it will be assigned to a committee for further action.

    SB 101, amended in the Senate Judiciary Non-Civil Committee to include further protections for law-abiding gun owners, would make the following pro-gun improvements in Georgia:

    • Repeals the unnecessary and duplicative state-required license for a firearms dealer, ensuring that gun dealers are only required to have a Federal Firearms License (FFL).
    • Enhances the current reciprocity for out-of-state concealed carry permit holders traveling through Georgia and sets legal precedent for other states to follow suit.
    • Preempts a ban on firearms in public housing, as the necessity of self-defense is paramount regardless of where one calls home.
    • Protects the confidentiality of Weapons Carry License holders. Recently, there have been several instances of anti-gun media outlets publishing the names and addresses of Weapons Carry License holders which jeopardizes the safety and violates the privacy of law-abiding citizens. SB 101 would ensure this would never happen in Georgia.
    • Prohibits the state from creating and maintaining a database of Weapons Carry License holders.
    • Lowers the age from 21 to 18 for activity duty military, with specific training, to obtain a Weapons Carry License to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense.

    See the "no" voters here are remember them come election day.

    That's good news for Georgia. Hopefully, it gets past committee. Missouri had a pretty draconian bill (HB 545) that died before it even got that far, thankfully.

    Anyone in Georgia should consider supporting Catherine Bernard for Georgia GOP Vice Chair. She is an extremely sharp lady who wants to re-boresight the GOP back to center-mass on small government and better representation of constituents, among lots of other great things. She listens and cares deeply about what the great majority of us consider vital to our nation. A wonderful person, to boot. Like her page and donate to her campaign, if you can.
