Georgia hopped on the bandwagon and passed a Constitutional Carry bill that will make owning firearms in Georgia easier to do for law-abiding citizens. According to Fox5, the bill will allow citizens to carry handguns without a license. This is a big win for gun-owning Americans.
Governor Brian Kemp signed the bill into law on April 12th. At the ceremony, he spoke about the importance of the bill and how it affects him personally saying “As the parents of three daughters – there’s nothing Marty and I care more about than making sure Jarrett, Lucy, and Amy Porter are safe. With Jarrett a recent graduate and Lucy and Amy Porter still in college, that isn’t as easy as it used to be. SB 319 makes sure that law-abiding Georgians – including our daughters and your family, too – can protect themselves without having to ask permission from the state government.”
This bill is a huge accomplishment for Governor Kemp who is currently running for re-election against former senator David Perdue. The two will face off in late May primaries to see who will run against the infamous Stacey Abrams in November.
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene didn’t pass up on the chance to comment on the bill either. As a conservative member of Congress and supporter of Constitutional Carry, Greene said in a Facebook post “It’s a good day to be a Georgian. Constitutional Carry is now the law of the land!” In the photo, you can see Greene utilizing her 2nd amendment rights unashamed.
Governor Kemp continued his remarks about the new law by explaining, “The Constitution of the United States gives us that right – not the government.”
The Governor ended with an encouraging message to all Georgians saying “I have no doubt the left will come after us yet again… like they have before. They have tried to boycott, sue, and threaten all of us into making our state look more like New York or California. They did it when we passed the heartbeat bill, when we were the first state to reopen our economy, and when we passed the strongest election integrity act in the country. But we didn’t back down then, and we’re not going to back down now. We’re doing what’s right for the people of our state.”
This is a great time to be alive and to be a supporter of the 2nd amendment. Huge 2nd amendment victories are piling up as election season comes!
