    Constitutional Carry Bill Pre-Filed for The 2012 Legislative Session!

    To Whomever its Interested:

    The Honorable and Respectable Freshman Representative Jason Spencer, a Woodbine Elected Republican, Representing Camden County and a Portion of Glynn County, has Introduced Legislative House Bill 679, that would Authorize Constitutional Carry throughout Georgia, by making Georgia Weapons Carry Licenses Optional, and which would Insert a New Paragraph (2.1.) under Georgia Code 16-11-125.1.

    The Change, if Enacted, would be a Beneficial Firearm-related Change that would Ensure Law-abiding Citizens of Georgia need NOT Apply for, Pay for, or have to Wait for Governmental Permission to Exercise a Fundamental Right to Keep and Bear Arms in Accordance with Their Second Amendment Rights and Their Eighth Paragraphical Rights Enshrined under both The Federal Constitution and The Georgia Constitution.

    Currently, The States of: 1. Alaska, 2. Arizona, 3. Vermont, and 4. Wyoming Enjoy This Constitutional Right and Statutory Right in Accordance with The Aforementioned Freedoms.

    The Legislative Bil is Viewable here:

    Nice to see the pressure building up. There is a momentum to these things. Even having a bill introduced causes the nanny staters time and money to try to stop it. Enough efforts and we overwhelm them with facts and logic. Keep on pushing. We are winning.

    Here's an article, complete with the obligatory 1% dissenting opinion getting more than a fair share of the page. In response to Alice's comment about holding people accountable, laws already do so. Permits don't hold be accountable. They're an impediment to lawful carry by honest, law-abiding citizens.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    I am still Disappointed though, in that, The Legislative Bill does NOT go Far Enough in The Pro-Firearm Category.

    Simply put, Georgia NEEDS to Allow Law-abiding Citizen Residents to Carry Firearms and Weapons at Non-Secure Governmental Buildings AND Polling Places!

    We also NEED Strengthened Preemption, like Florida AND Indiana now have.

    Big step in the right direction though. Would this allow unlicensed carry for those 18+?
    "No state shall convert a liberty to a privilege, license it, and charge a fee therefor.- Murdock vs Pennsylvania 319 US 105

    ...If the state converts a right into a privelege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right... with impunity.
    - Shuttleworth vs City of Birmingham, Alabama 317 US 262

    Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no legislation which would abrogate them.
    - Miranda vs Arizona 384 US 436

    xmanhockey7:

    Conditionally..., but The Legislation would most likely ONLY Apply to Persons who are 21 Years of Age, or Older.

    There has been NO Significant Move on Behalf of Our Legislators to Lower The Age of Open Carry to 18 Years of Age.

    However, if a Lawful Carrier Includes a Person Legally able to Carry, as Opposed to Mere Possession, then, there is a Possibility that The Legislation could Allow Open Carry by Persons 18 Years of Age or Older by Default, since a Person who is 18 Years of Age or Older may Legally Own, but not Carry or Transfer, a Pistol.

    Definitely nice to see. Hopefully more states follow suit with this. I think I read somewhere that Missouri may be working on something like this as well.

    Many States are Working on Similar Legislation.

    If they do it I hope they do it right. Don't screw it up like WY did and make it for Residents only.
    States donít have rights. People do.
