Jasperse Introduces Safe Carry Protection Act of 2013

After weeks of work, state Rep. Rick Jasperse has introduced HB 512, the Safe Carry Act of 2013. The bill is designed to enhance the safety of all Georgians through the safe carrying of firearms by responsible citizens. Among other things, the bill would reduce the number of off-limits places, eliminate the need for fingerprints for renewals of GWLs, expand state preemption of local regulations to include all weapons, and recognize the safe record of GWL holders by adding them to the list of those exempt from several firearms laws. GCO strongly supports this bill and encourages its members to tell their representatives that they would like to see the bill passed into law.
