Georgia Looking at Further Easements in Carry Laws

Looks like Tim Bearden is planning a pretty broad expansion:

The legislation he is working on, a variation of House Bill 615 that was presented before committee in the waning hours of the 2009 legislative session, would expand the possible places owners could legally carry their guns, changing the current law to allow owners to carry guns in all places except for courthouses and prisons and jails, effectively ensuring that no unauthorized person would be allowed to carry a gun where inmates are housed or transferred.

That would pretty much fix all the problems with concealed carry in Georgia. The only step after that really would be to adopt Alaska carry.

    Fixing carry at rest areas would be nice while traveling.

    Just wish they’d get reciprocity with VA or SC.

    Good to see this. My state has issues to, but none as bad as Georgia.

    However, I would say that we should be pushing for Vermont Carry, not Alaska Carry, after winning other battles. Alaska, though probably better than 48 other states, has issues of it’s own, IF this video is an accurate representation:

    I haven’t looked for corroboration, so take it with a grain of salt.
