Today, GA2A, Georgia’s premiere gun rights organization, released their policy priorities for the 2023 Legislative Session. From lowering the minimum age for a Georgia Weapons License (GWL) to eliminating gender and age restrictions for joining the State Militia, GA2A will boldly advocate on behalf of law-abiding citizens who want to exercise their constitutional rights.
The organization, which led efforts to pass Constitutional Carry (SB319) in 2022, will champion legislation that bans governmental entities from: ending the purchase of firearms during a declared State of Emergency, prohibiting gun discharge on private property larger than 10 acres, and creating gun databases that can be used to track gun owners.
GA2A will also fight to expand locations for concealed carry so places of worship and government buildings remain safe and secure.
“The 2022 Legislative Session was a banner year for gun owners and 2nd Amendment backers in Georgia,” said Jerry Henry, Executive Director of GA2A. “With the passage of SB319, better known as Constitutional Carry, Georgia became the 25th state in the country to allow law-abiding citizens to exercise their rights by carrying a concealed firearm without a permit.
“While energized and encouraged by the progress made under the Gold Dome, legislative action is still needed to Shield the 2nd in Georgia. During the 2023 Session, our grassroots organization will actively push for new laws that protect – and restore – our 2nd Amendment Rights.
“We look forward to partnering with state leaders, lawmakers, and the grassroots to turn our legislative agenda into law. Together, we will ensure a safer, stronger future for all Georgians.”
