State Legislation

Look who I ran in to (PHOTO)

The Bloomberg / Soros funded anti-gun Moms (see picture below) are out in force at the Capitol again this week, lobbying to defeat “Constitutional Carry”. All Second Amendment supporters should ask themselves this: With enemies like  these, why are Alan Powell and Heath Clark refusing to allow a vote? If Powell and Clark succeed in burying “Constitutional Carry”, Bloomberg / Soros win and Second Amendment supporters lose. Keep the heat

(Audio): "GGO has been kickin my a** for two years"

House Public Safety Chairman Alan Powell is working overtime to kill “Constitutional Carry”. One of our great members, Paul, recorded his telephone call with Chairman Powell this weekend — then sent me the audio. It will make your blood boil. Powell lays out excuse after excuse as to why he’s not bringing “Constitutional Carry” up for a vote. His favorite and most pathetic excuse is perpetuating the falsehood that “we

Video: We got him on the record

While working the halls of the Capitol yesterday seeking support for Constitutional Carry, GGO staff ran into Public Safety Chairman Alan Powell. You may know Chairman Powell as the gatekeeper for Second Amendment legislation in his committee. He’s also the same Chairman Powell who tells Second Amendment supporters who call into his office that Constitutional Carry does away with reciprocity. THIS IS NOT TRUE! Right now, he’s sitting on not

Constitutional Carry - TAKE ACTION

Talk of Constitutional Carry (House Bill 156) is white hot in Georgia. With over a dozen cosponsors and other legislators indicating their support, now is the time to push for a vote in both the House and Senate. But there’s AT LEAST one BIG problem in the House — Speaker David Ralston. For years now, Ralston has blocked a vote on Constitutional Carry. With 2018 being an election year, and Ralston fighting

Where should we fight?

With the 2018 session of the Georgia General Assembly having just kicked off, I’m working virtually non stop putting the finishing touches on Georgia Gun Owners’ program strategy for this year. But there’s something I have to tell you. After the tragedies in Las Vegas, Nevada and Sutherland Springs, Texas in recent months, I’m afraid my hopes of focusing solely on passing Constitutional Carry is out the window. Sensing that the political

Video: Gun Update from the State Capitol

Just got back to the office in Kennesaw from the State Capitol in Atlanta. A little while ago I spoke to State Rep. Matt Gurtler, the lead sponsor of Constitutional Carry (HB 156). Rep. Gurtler continues to be the leading voice for Constitutional Carry and your gun rights at the Capitol in Atlanta, working behind the scenes to help secure a vote, even when many in leadership do not want

It's GO Time

Today is Day 1 of 40 of the 2018 meeting of the Georgia General Assembly! Despite your tremendous grassroots pressure last year, establishment Republican legislators led by Alan Powell and Heath Clark blocked a vote in the House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee and “Subcommittee 2A” on “Constitutional Carry” (HB 156) in Georgia. In attempt to alleviate the pressure they were feeling and get you to back off, those

They're Power Hungry In 2018

“Democratic hopefuls for Georgia governor seek new gun restrictions” — Atlanta Journal-Constitution   This headline appeared in the AJC recently, where two Democrats for Governor in Georgia spewed gun control talking points like they were running for office in left-wing San Francisco. The gun-grabbers are angry. Unhinged.  Violent.  And looking to take back power in 2018. Second Amendment supporters must take these threats to our rights seriously. Because if the gun-grabbers ever get

Georgia Gun Control Bill Introduced - HB 651

Dear Georgia Gun Owners, I’ve got some breaking news from the Capitol in Atlanta. Yesterday was the first day that Georgia legislators could introduce new legislation for the 2018 meeting of the Georgia General Assembly. My staff watched closely late into the night for new gun control legislation. Sure enough, anti-gun witch Mary Margaret Oliver from Decatur made sure she introduced a bill. HB 651 is a “bump stock” ban.

We won't give an inch

Dear Georgia Gun Owners, Even as the 500+ victims from the October 1, 2017 shooting struggled for life in Las Vegas hospitals, gun-grabbers across America were already rushing to capitalize. From social media, to cable TV news and late-night comedy shows, the message was the same all over the country:  Guns and gun owners are to blame for this tragedy! In Washington, D.C., supposedly “pro-Second Amendment” champions immediately began running
