Three significant pro-gun measures have been sent to Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal for consideration.
HB 280 would allow law-abiding GWL holders to carry when they are in certain buildings or on certain real property owned by or leased to any public technical school, vocational school, college, university or other institution of postsecondary education. House Bill 292 would make several positive and important changes to Georgia gun laws that affect law-abiding owners.
House Bill 406 would amend certain issues with Georgia carry reciprocity laws, specifically allowing Virginia concealed handgun permit holders to enjoy permit reciprocity with Georgia.
