    Governor Perdue Signs Bill Clarifying Georgia?s Gun Laws

    ATLANTA – Governor Sonny Perdue announced today that he has signed Senate Bill 308, a bill that clarifies Georgia law on where it is legal for licensed permit holders to carry guns. SB 308 was sponsored by Sen. Mitch Seabaugh.

    “Georgia’s Common Sense Lawful Carry Act protects lawfully carrying citizens from unknowingly becoming criminals by clarifying where they can and cannot carry their weapons,” Sen. Seabaugh said. “They know all too well that a license to carry is not a license to commit a crime. This law was truly written by the citizens of Georgia, with input from all interested constituents. Government should work for the people to protect their freedoms and constitutionally guaranteed rights. I want to thank Gov. Perdue and my colleagues in the Legislature for their support and willingness to work on this legislation. I also want to thank everyone who provided valuable input into writing this bill to help achieve a law that makes sense.”

    “GeorgiaCarry.Org appreciates Governor Perdue’s signing this important legislation,” stated Ed Stone, President of GCO. “It is vital for law-abiding citizens who wish to arm themselves for self-defense to know definitively what places are off-limits. This bill, through the leadership of Sen. Seabaugh, eliminates much of the ambiguity inherent in the former law. believes that this legislation is an important step in the restoration and full implementation of law-abiding citizens’ right to bear arms.”

    Can someone post a synopsis of what the new law is. I tried reading the actual bill earlier but it was failr long and difficult with all the strikeouts and add-ins.

  4. There were a ton of changes to the law. I don't know all of them off the top of my head, but I know that they completely got rid of the "public gathering" clause and that college students with permits can now keep their guns in their cars.

    It also says churches are off limits. Airports are off limits if you are inside, but parking lots and driveways are ok.
