Both Gun Bills Pass!

SB 291 and SB 308 both passed the House this week! SB 308 just passed today 119-48. Now they go to Sonny Perdue and into law.

SB291 lets us carry in the airport in non-TSA areas, and prevents siezure of guns during an emergency.

SB 308 gets rid of the stupid "public gathering" law, and changes the gun permit to a weapons permit, which allows knives under 5 inches. It also allows open carry without a permit, as long as you are not disallowed from owning.

There are other changes that I need to research.

If your rep voted yes please send them a note thanking them. If they voted know, remind them that you get to vote against them next time.

The part that I highlighted in red is not correct. To OC a pistol you will still need a license.

Here is a link to SB308 as passed by the House and Senate.

Purdue signed 308 but not 291.

Interestingly enough, NRA dropped their support for 308 in favor of 291...

For anyone more familiar than me, what's the bit about 18" barrels and SB308?

Under SB308, the open carry of long guns with barrels under 18" is not regulated and is legal with out a license.

. . . provided you legally own one in the first place. They would still be considered Short Barreled Rifles under Federal law and therefore only allowed if you have a Class III license. This was inserted so that Georgia is not attempting to pre-empt Federal law.

There is no such thing as a license to possess or purchase for personal use NFA regulated items. You just have to get each item approved by the ATF and purchase a tax stamp for each.

Also, for rifles, they don't fall under NFA regulation unless they
are below 16" in barrel length or under 26" is overall length.

Federal law has nothing to do with it.

Not sure I follow this one. Most underfolding AK's have a 16.something inch barrel and could be concealed under a jacket without too much difficulty. I'm guessing intent of the law and letter of the law don't really match up here?
