Georgia’s Most Important Right-to-Carry Reform Bill in Over 20 Years Needs Your Help!

Please Contact Governor Perdue Today!



On Friday, April 4, House Bill 89 finally agreed upon by both the Georgia House of Representatives and Senate was sent to Governor Sonny Perdue (R) for his consideration.



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



ü allowing licensed carry permit holders to possess a firearm in any private motor vehicle, while on any publicly accessible parking lot;

ü prohibiting gun dealer entrapment schemes, such as those orchestrated by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg;

ü allowing concealed carry permit holders to carry in State Parks; recreational areas, wildlife management areas, and public transportation;

ü creating a stricter time limit for various stages of the concealed carry license application process; and

ü allowing concealed carry permit holders to carry in restaurants.



These are just a few of the positive reforms HB89 will make to Georgia’s firearm laws.



Unfortunately, gun control groups and opponents in the business community are urging the governor to veto the bill.



Governor Perdue needs to hear from you. Let him know that legislation reinforcing the Second Amendment, like HB 89, is exactly what law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen want in Georgia.



Help preserve our Second Amendment rights in Georgia. Please call Governor Perdue today and respectfully urge him to protect your right to self-defense by signing HB 89 into law.



Contact information for Governor Perdue is:
Phone Number: 404-656-1776
Fax Number: 404-657-7332

Please forward this email to your family, friends and fellow gun owners and tell them that their State Senator needs to hear from them today too!



PLEASE MAKE THIS IMPORTANT CALL TODAY!

i was half expecting Perdue to not sign or veto HB89 and just allow it to become law. i called the governors office myself to voice my support for HB89. It is a start and a good one but only a start. Way to go Georgia.:D
