Georgia Campus Carry Act Hits Delay

posted on March 4, 2016

After easily passing the Georgia state House of Representatives Monday, the Senate Judiciary Committee decided to delay a scheduled vote on the proposed “Campus Carry Act” to next week after a full hearing Wednesday. Over three hours of testimony was taken from 39 supporters and opponents of the bill that would allow anyone 21 or older with a weapons license to carry anywhere on public college campuses except dorms, fraternity and sorority houses, and athletic stadiums. 

Members of the committee delayed the vote due to questions about the bill, such as how colleges would handle campus disciplinary hearings for violations and whether weapons would still be allowed at music concerts held on campus. The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to meet and vote on House Bill 859 next week.
