    Today, July 1, House Bill 89 takes effect. This NRA supported measure makes numerous improvements to Georgia’s Right-to-Carry laws and represents the most comprehensive pro-gun reform measure to be enacted in nearly 20 years.

    This critical Right-to-Carry Reform legislation will strengthen Georgia’s current laws by:

    allowing licensed carry permit holders to possess a firearm in any private motor vehicle, while on any publicly accessible parking lot;
    prohibiting gun dealer entrapment schemes, such as those orchestrated by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg;
    allowing concealed carry permit holders to carry in State Parks, recreational areas, wildlife management areas, and public transportation;
    creating a stricter time limit for various stages of the concealed carry license application process; and
    allowing concealed carry permit holders to carry in restaurants.

    Thank you to all of the NRA members who answered the call in support of HB89. Your action played a pivotal role in the enactment of this much-needed legislation. Without you this victory would not have been possible.

    And, Her Highness, the Mayor of Atlanta and her ilk are stirring the pot over carrying at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport. She's a prime example of why the 13th, 14th, 15th, and 19th Amendments need to be repealed.
