HB89 will allow people without a GFL to conceal a firearm anywhere in their car (currently limited to open manner and fully exposed to view, glove box, console, or similar compartment). It also deals with probate court delays in issuing a GFL. If you have a GA Firearms License it will allow State Park carry, anti-Bloomberg stings, and most importantly public transportation and restaurants that serve alcohol are no longer places off limits. This bill has passed both the House and the Senate and is waiting on Gov. Perdue to either sign it or allow it to pass (basically it will pass unless he vetoes it).

Please write and call Gov. Perdue because the media onslaught continues against HB 89. Every day that the Governor hesitates, the enemies of the right to bear arms are emboldened to believe that they might be victorious in defeating this legislation, which, as you know, restores only a portion of your right to bear arms.

Yesterday, the Atlanta Journal Constitution ran two pieces, including one by Rep. Time Bearden (the sponsor), but today, they ran two full size anti-liberty pieces. Marta and the GA Restaurants Assoc. also are pushing him to veto this bill (Never mind that many members of this Assoc. are places that don't sell alcohol so GFL members can already carry there). The more pro HB89 feedback Gov. Perdue hears the better. Please take a moment and call or write him to support this bill.

Here is Governor Perdue’s contact information:

If You Call, Know What You Want To Say Before Dialing (suggest writing it down even)

I urged him as a very frequent visitor.
Now,we still need to eliminate the vile "Public Gathering Statute" and allow religious service carry among some other things.
But,as you say,first things first.
Good luck.I go to Savannah again in June.Spanky's on River Street is waiting.

I called his office late this week, and his staffer told me he has not decided what he will do, but seems to be leaning against it. He may value the money from the restaurant association more than support of a few gun folks.

Truly pathetic. Purdue lost a lot of respect when he folded on the state flag issue, but because he has an "R" by his name, he just must be conservative.
