The Governor of Utah signed legislation to make Utah the seventeenth Constitutional Carry state, just two weeks ago.
Newly elected Montana Governor Greg Gianforte did the same thing in Montana less than a week later, making Montana the eighteenth Constitutional Carry state and the second state to sign this legislation into law this year!
In Iowa, Constitutional Carry law passed the committee process in the House and Senate last week and is awaiting a final floor vote before the bill will likely be sent to the Governor.
Tennessee lawmakers have advanced Constitutional Carry through the committee phase in the House and the bill is expected to receive a floor vote as early as today.
And the Indiana House of Representatives has already approved Constitutional Carry law, sending the bill to the Senate for a final vote before it goes to the Governor.
State after state after state is passing Constitutional Carry legislation into law while they have the votes to get it done. Here in Georgia, the legislature is giving gun owners nothing!
Constitutional Carry is a very simple concept.
It simply states that if you are legally allowed to own a firearm, you could legally carry that firearm for self-defense without having to pay a fee for that right — and without having to be tracked, traced, and registered like a sex offender!
Of course, the media and anti-gun lawmakers in Atlanta are already lying about the impact of this bill, trying to kill it before it even gets off the ground.
No, Constitutional Carry does not mean that criminals can own firearms. Stopping violent criminals from harming our loved ones is why we carry firearms in the first place.
And no, passing Constitutional Carry does not mean that the current ‘Shall Issue’ system would be eliminated. Nothing about the current law would change, except that it would be optional!
Nor would passage of Constitutional Carry lead to a spike in violent crime.
On the contrary, every single state that passed this legislation over the last ten years saw its murder rates decline immediately! These fear-mongering tactics are FAKE NEWS, and nothing new to gun owners here in Georgia.
The good news is that Constitutional Carry has been filed in Atlanta (H.B. 2.) The bad news is that it’s been assigned to the Public Safety and Homeland Security committee — a committee that has sat on this bill before on orders from Speaker Ralston.
So please send your emails today, and then encourage your friends and family to get involved in this fight and send their emails, too!
Gun owners in Missouri have been successful at passing major Second Amendment bills into law because they are NOT AFRAID to call out Republicans who stand in their path.
In Wyoming last year, gun owners removed over a half-dozen POWERFUL back-stabbing Republicans from office during their August primaries — Republicans who were blocking critical pro-gun legislation.
And in Pennsylvania, gun owners threw Republican Senator Thomas Killion out of office last fall, after he led the charge for ‘Red Flag Gun Seizures’ all last year.
As gun owners in ‘red Georgia’, we have a decision to make.
Are we going to sit back and give these lawmakers a pass because they are Republicans, or, are we going to demand that they keep their campaign promises and pass Constitutional Carry like eighteen other state legislatures have done?
To me, the choice is clear.
We need to keep the pressure on in Atlanta and remind the politicians that they work for us and that, like any employer, we expect them to do their job — or we’ll find someone who will.
Help us do that, by sending your PRE-WRITTEN EMAILS now!
Send your email, and when you’re done, please make a donation to Georgia Gun Owners so we can continue to fight for you and hold the line for our great Second Amendment.
Georgia Gun Owners members are the tip of the spear in the fight for freedom here in Georgia and have done so much to save our state from the socialists who want to destroy it.
Whatever you do, be sure to send your emails to the politicians in Atlanta, that’s most important!
Georgia Gun Owners
P.S. States all over the country are moving Constitutional Carry law while the moderates in Atlanta are doing everything they can to sit on the bill here in Georgia!
Once you’re done, please make a donation to help Georgia Gun Owners continue to mobilize gun owners in support of this badly needed legislation.
