Here is a listing of Pro-2nd Amendment bills that I can find being proposed in the legislature.

Spread the word! Tell your district legislators to vote for these changes! Most importantly, remember and financially support the campaigns of those legislators who are sponsoring these pro-2nd amendment changes.

We have too many 2nd Amendment fakes who don’t lift a hand to help us. After the session ends, I will compile the 2nd Amendment voting record of each of the legislators so we all can see the ones who walk the walk, and who just talk the talk.

Good work on this. I will definitely WRITE my representative.


Just a tip. I think I heard somewhere that snail mail has more effect than email. Just what I heard, don't know if its true, but it makes sense.

All of them sound great, but this one makes no sense. There is no requirement that the firearm be in open view. It can be in the console or the glove box without a license to carry.

Great info.
I can only assume that the restraunt one is to eliminate the "if they serve alcohol" applicability right?

If your rep's office is nearby, you can always stop by and let your views be heard in person. That beats a letter or a fax. Of course, you should shower, shave, use deoderant and take off the tinfoil hat before showing up.

I'm tuned in to this. My guys are typically pro-gun, so I'll se ejust how much.

I'll tell ya. I miss Paul Coverdell. That guy always sent me something letting me know he received my message and that he wouldn't compromise 2nd amendment stuff. It might have been a blanket message, but I got it. I never got anything back from Nathan Deal.

We only need to contact our State Reps and not the U.S. reps for the state correct?
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 5:15:42 AM EDT
Yes, this is for our STATE reps and senators. The federal/US reps aren't involved.

I just noticed that HR1061 is sponsored by DEMOCRATS and it seems like a great bill. Hopefully, this means a conservative Democrats are ready to take back thier party from the left wing nut cases. We need to help them!

Mr. Richardson,
Thank you very much for your strong conservative presence and leadership of the Georgia House. I am proud to have you represent my home district in Paulding County.

I am asking for your support of some very important Self Protection bills that are being put in front of the House this year.These bills deal with loosening some restrictions on concealed carry and with strengthening my legal ability to protect myself and my family.

Please, support House Bills 193, 799, 998, 1001, and 1061.

Again, I greatly appreciate your strong conservative presence in the Georgia House.

Don't just talk about contacting your reps, do it!!!! These are great bills that will in reality reduce crime by letting law abiding citizens that carry have a greater presence in your daily surroundings.

By the way, don't anyone forget that Gov. Perdue "put a lid" on concealed carry reform last year:

From the Feb 21, 2005, Atlanta Journal and Constitution:

“Both sides are telling us that Gov. Sonny Perdue has slapped a lid on the Legislature's efforts to ease restrictions on concealed weapons, so that hidden sidearms can be carried — by permitted owners — into many restaurants and some bars.”

Thank you Mike!!!!

These bills are critical that they become law.

Bill Heath replied about SB396 and simply said "I plan on supporting this."

The only 5 words that I needed to see.

Just got an e-mail alert on 998.


The Georgia House of Representatives will be considering House Bill 998 ("Georgia's Self Defense Act"), sponsored by Representative Tom Graves (R-12), as early as next week.

This bill would protect the rights of all Georgians who carry firearms in their vehicles for protection and other lawful purposes thereby stopping businesses from controlling what private property you have in your personal vehicle.

HB 998 passed out of the House Public Safety Committee this week. Please be sure to call your Representative today at (404) 656-0305 and voice your support of HB 998. You can find further contact information by using the "Write Your Representative" feature found at www.NRAILA.org.

You know...people in middle GA love this guy. But he has done more than a few things to piss me off.

Here is the reply i got back from my rep


Dear Chris,

Thank you for your input on the bills you mentioned.

On SB 396 and HB998 I am in support of their current form. HB 193, HB 799 and HB 1061 I need to study a little more before I have an opinion.

I would also like for you to look at HB 1032. It addresses the problem we have in Georgia right now where your carry permit is not valid for the purchase of a firearm, long or short. You currently will have to wait for the Federal back ground check to take place when purchasing. Our permit used to allow the bypassing of this since there was a back ground check done at the time of issue. This Bill will bring into line our proceedures and allow for the permit to allow for instant purchase the way it used to.

Thanks again for your input,

Terry

Terry England
Georgia House of Representatives
District 108




What do you guys think about this bill?
HB1032

Yeah, the AJC is a reeaaallll trustworthy source.

I just got off the phone with Terry England, my Rep from Barrow County. We had a very long talk about these bills, at least one of which he is a sponsor, HB1032. He is a carry license holder and he said he is strongly supporting all these bills. We had a very long talk and he was very nice and even enthusiastic about the subject.

I mentioned to him the bit about Governor Perdue "slapping a lid" on any restrictions being eased and he said that was just the AJC hoping that it was true. He said that the Governor has issued no such proclamations or anything similar. He said it was just not true.

Dear Chris,
Please know that I will support this bill when it comes to the floor of the Senate.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,
Ralph Hudgens




He didn't have a whole lot to say about it.
