Georgia: Carry Permit Reciprocity Bill Introduced

On January 16th, House Bill 787 was introduced to expand the ability of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves and their families both within Georgia and in other states. HB 787 now awaits assignment to a committee for further consideration.

House Bill 787, sponsored by Representative Mandi Ballinger (R-23), would grant universal recognition to concealed carry permits held by non-Georgia residents issued by any other state. It would also direct the Georgia Attorney General to enter into formal reciprocity agreements with any state that requires a formal agreement to recognize a Georgia Weapons Carry License. This reform recognizes that Georgia residents traveling to other states and visitors to Georgia should not be left defenseless simply by crossing a state line.
