    HB 875 passed the House Committee last night pretty easily, even though we have had a lot of opposition from Moral Monday, Moms Demand Action and Gun Sense groups, etc.... at the capitol. They are more organized and vocal this year than ever.

    With Campus Carry provisions taken out of this years gun bill, this has a high chance of passing. It now needs to get of the House floor through the Rules Committee for a vote and then move onto the Senate. If you live in Georgia, please contact your House Rep and ask for their support of the bill.

    Good luck guys, keep up the good work and see this thing through to the end. Let people know at your local gun shops, facebook if you have it, friends and family, coworkers, Church members.

    When we needed our Governor to veto a bill last year, I typed up little cards, 8 to a page of 8.5"x11" and cut them out saying to contact the Governor and veto bill XXXX with his office number on them. I put them on the counter of local gun shops that would let me.
    The Governor did in fact veto that bill which would have stripped us of our Rights.

    HB 875 was heard in the House Rules Committee this morning. It was favorably passed out of Rules and will go to the House Floor for a 2 hour debate and a floor vote tomorrow Feb 18th, 2014. No amendments will be allowed from the floor.

    It should be a very spirited debate, but in the end it will be passed by the House and then sent onto the Senate. Those of you interested in watching the floor debate and vote can do so here tomorrow:

    House Chamber


    If you haven't already done so, please contact your State Representative and ask for their support of HB 875.

    There were 350+ people there at the signing and then for the BBQ. It was a beautiful day in North GA for restoration of our rights.

    We still have work to do, but it was a great day.

    I think the one statement the gov said sums it all up..."This will give added protection to those that follow the rules from those that dont".
