House Bill 89 seems to be the one which they want to pass first.

Georgia Law does not require the firearm to be concealed. Georgia Firearm Licenses are Carry Permits.

Smile New Gun Laws Passed in Georgia

We're happy in Georgia! Our Governor Perdue signed into law our right to carry into establishments that serve alcohol, in our parks and onto MARTA --- big one! Our transit trains are NOT safe, no matter what Atlanta's Major "Shirley Girl" Franklin says! I know by experience because I was almost a crime statistic on Marta. Was riding by myself and was goated by a crowd of young heathens. Won't ride it again because of it!

Now I can carry protection but I probably still won't ride Marta again.

The law also makes the Probate Courts transact carry permits within 30 days (I think). Although the law doesn't go into affect until July 1st, my county (Lumpkin) already uses their new system. I was the first to apply and get fingerprinted under their new system. What a dream! It took only half an hour and I got my card in 10 days!
