The Governors of Utah and Montana signed Constitutional Carry legislation into law in their states last week.
That makes eighteen states where gun owners can carry a firearm for self-defense without having to beg the government for permission or add their name to a central database!
To be clear, this will mean that gun owners in Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, New Hampshire, North Dakota, S. Dakota, Oklahoma, Vermont, W. Virginia, Wyoming — and now Utah and Montana –- are free of government interference when it comes to their personal safety.
But not here in Georgia.
Despite gun owners holding the line against Michael Bloomberg’s attempts to flip either chamber of our legislature, gun owners have been told to ‘sit down and shut up’ regarding Constitutional Carry for years now.
But that could change, if House and Senate leaders pass House Bill 2, the Constitutional Carry legislation that was filed for Georgia Gun Owners by Rep. Philip Singleton!
As you may know, Constitutional Carry law doesn’t change the laws on who can own or carry a firearm.
So despite what Bloomberg’s people in Atlanta are saying, this bill would NOT allow felons or any other prohibited person to access firearms — just like it doesn’t in the other 18 states that have this law on the books.
And it doesn’t change Georgia’s current ‘Shall Issue’ laws, other than making it optional. So if you want to carry with a permit, you certainly could continue to do so.
But if the events of last year — the travel bans, the rioting, sheriff’s departments that were closed to permit applicants –taught us anything, it’s that law abiding Georgians need to be able to defend themselves!
But this won’t happen without a mountain of grassroots pressure.
Everyone knows that the moderates in Atlanta have been working overtime to block Constitutional Carry for years, forcing Georgians to go without these freedoms while state after state passed it into law.
I don’t know about you, but I’m disgusted with all the talk, the lip service, the promises year after year, only to get crumbs and outright betrayal in return, all while the Radical Left launches attacks against our gun rights every single day.
So send your email in support of H.B. 2 now, and when you’re done, please make a critical donation to help Georgia Gun Owners push this legislation!
Gun owners in Georgia have waited long enough for Constitutional Carry, watching other states blow past us in the fight for Second Amendment freedom.
It’s time that the politicians in Atlanta finish this fight.
Georgia Gun Owners
P.S. The Governors of Utah AND Montana just signed Constitutional Carry into law, making a full eighteen states where gun owners can carry a firearm without having to add their name to a government database!
Meantime, Georgia legislative leaders have blocked Constitutional Carry legislation for over a decade — all the while begging gun owners for votes and campaign dollars at election time.
