Please Thank Governor Perdue Today!

Wednesday, May 14, Governor Sonny Perdue (R) signed House Bill 89 into law. This NRA supported measure makes numerous improvements to Georgia’s Right-to-Carry laws and represents the most comprehensive pro-gun reform measure to be enacted in nearly 20 years.

This critical Right-to-Carry Reform legislation will strengthen Georgia’s current laws by:

* allowing licensed carry permit holders to possess a firearm in any private motor vehicle, while on any publicly accessible parking lot;
* prohibiting gun dealer entrapment schemes, such as those orchestrated by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg;
* allowing concealed carry permit holders to carry in State Parks, recreational areas, wildlife management areas, and public transportation;
* creating a stricter time limit for various stages of the concealed carry license application process; and
* allowing concealed carry permit holders to carry in restaurants.

Thank you to all of the NRA members who answered the call in support of HB89. Your action played a pivotal role in the enactment of this much-needed legislation. Without you this victory would have been impossible.

Glad I can now visit Stone Mountain without having to worry about securing my firearm. :icon_great:gf

May want to wait until after July 1st when it becomes law, but it's still time to celebrate! All Georgians should also write Governor Purdue, Representative Tim Bearden, Senator John Douglas, all representatives who voted yes, the board of and give them a sincere thanks for their support and hard work.
