  • HB60 passed in Georgia

    Amongst other things, HB60 does the following:

    – Remove fingerprinting for renewal of Weapons Carry Licenses (WCL).
    - Prohibit the state from creating and maintaining a database of WCL holders.
    - Create an absolute defense for the legal use of deadly force in the face of a violent attack.
    - Remove the sweeping restrictions on legally carrying a firearm with a WCL in churches and bars, leaving this decision to private property owners (churches must “opt-in” to allow carry).
    - Lower the age to obtain a concealed WCL for self-defense from 21 to 18 for active duty military, with specific training.
    - Allows for the use of firearm sound suppressors while hunting.
    - Repeal the unnecessary and duplicative state-required license for a firearms dealer, instead requiring only a Federal Firearms License (FFL).
    - Prohibit a ban on firearms in public housing, ensuring that the right to self-defense should not be infringed based on where one calls home.
    - Codify the ability to legally carry, with a WCL, in sterile/non-secure areas of airports.
    - Include a provision that would have the state report those persons who have been involuntarily hospitalized or have been adjudicated mentally deficient to the NICS system while also providing an ability for relief through an application process to the court system for the purpose of restoration of rights.
    - State that under a declared state of emergency, all law-abiding gun owners will not have their Second Amendment rights restricted or infringed by executive authority through Emergency Powers protection.
    - Strengthen current firearms preemption statutes through further clarification of the regulatory authority of local governments, excluding firearm discharge ordinances.

        If Ga. has a geographical area that is cold (i.e. 60 deg. max. high ) in the summer, I might consider making a move.

              I like what I see. We in Illinois have a long way to go before we see reasonable legislation like this.

                Bo,
                Over the last 10 years we have already passed most of those provisions in VA. Ummm Now if we can keep our current Governor from fucking them up.

                          Update:
                          Our new law went into effect 7/1. Our city council is running around frantically trying to figure out how to keep legal firearm owners from carrying in government buildings, yet have no concerns about illegal carriers, and are trying to fund metal detectors at all entrances now.

                          Target has announced that they will be posting signs that legal firearm owners are not allowed to carry in their stores.

                            In Georgia, signs posted at an otherwise legal location, stating that the management prohibits firearms carry, hold no legal weight. If you carry in there anyways, the management can ask you to leave. If you refuse to do so, you can be charged with criminal trespass (misdemeanor) but not a firearms charge.

                              I understand... but what I don't understand is the sudden need to purchase metal detectors and post signs now that legal firearm owners are now allowed to carry in their buildings when in the past it never concerned them that illegal owners were carrying in their buildings.
